Arts in the Village Gallery announces the June Featured Artist exhibit, It’s a Beach Thing . . . , celebrating cool ocean waves and warm powdered sand, this exhibit is sure to get you in the mood for summer fun at the beach. Fun and functional jewelry designs by lamp-work glass artist Julie Bahun are intermingled with abstract paintings of the beach, sea and surrounds by Karen Hutchison in this inspiring early summer show.
New to the Gallery, artist Julie Bahun proffers a selection of vibrant wearable art jewelry, both sculptural pieces as well as those designed using her unique glass beads. Inspired by nature, including the hues of summer as well as the sight of crashing waves along the shore, Julie renders unique pieces that display a balance of color, shape and texture.
Karen Hutchison’s alluring ocean and sky blue tones coupled with textural beach vistas draw the viewer in for a closer look. Karen leverages a range of mixed media techniques and materials to develop her designs which are alternatively structural or flowing, calm or invigorating, soft or dynamic.
All are invited to the open to the public Artists’ Reception at the Gallery on Saturday, June 4th from 5 to 8 pm.
