Arts in the Village Gallery announces the July Featured Artists Exhibit Dancing Through Color, a collaborative exhibit of two and three dimensional work by fabric sculptor Claire Courpron and mixed media artist Ann Marie Williams.
Claire Courpron’s statuesque fabric-on-wire sculptures portray women engaged in a myriad of relationships and activities. Claire’s work portrays women’s strength and independence while preserving their femininity through movement and balance. Using predominantly up-cycled materials such as t-shirts and other fabrics infused with pigmented hardner, Claire creates eye-catching, colorful and durable pieces for the home or garden.
The lively mixed media artwork by Ann Marie Williams is the visual equivalent of blues, jazz, gospel and African beats, rich in color and symbolism. Bright tones, asymmetry, varying patterns, improvisations, collage and symbolic forms are used to achieve a piece that evokes an emotional or intellectual response from the viewer. Ann Marie is intentional with the titles of each of her pieces in order to convey her personal, cultural, and experiential message.
Please join Claire, Ann Marie and other Gallery artists at the free, open to the public reception on Saturday, July 16th from 5 - 8pm to enjoy conversation, wine and light fare.
