During October Arts in the Village Gallery presents the Featured Artists exhibit: Camera, Kiln & Canvas highlighting the work of two award-winning artists - ceramicist and painter Carol Clay-Ward and photographer Ken Sullins, in a dramatic display of nature inspired imagery.
Carol Clay-Ward’s interest in paleontology, animals and the environment shine through in her diverse body of work ranging from intricate oil paintings to raku Cave Pots depicting scenes reminiscent of ancient cave drawings and adorned with fossils. Luminescent metallic vessels commingle with horse-hair raku pendants and intimate mini canvases, rounding out the artwork of this multi-talented Renaissance woman.
Photographer Ken Sullins takes viewers on a journey of both mind and heart with his photography. Wild horses, open vistas, abandoned places, and dramatic landscapes, rendered both in vibrant color and black and white engage the viewer to step into a different place and time. Ken prints all his own photography on paper or canvas which he stretches onto hand-built bars.
Meet the artists during a free, open to the public reception on Saturday, October 12th, from 4 – 8 p.m.
