Arts in the Village Gallery announces the May Featured Artists exhibit, Sea & Sky, reminiscent of days unfolding under cloudless skies, sunrise walks, and wind swept dunes. The exhibit features the sculptural copper designs of Anne Jordan, and the richly textured mixed media paintings of Karen Watson, in this illustration of our long-standing and enthralling relationship with the Sea & Sky.
Anne Jordan’s love affair with copper continues to evolve and strengthen with each passing season. Dimensional starfish, sand dollars, and sea horses emerge from flat copper through the use of chasing and repousse techniques. Acid-etching yields interestingly textured backgrounds on repousse pieces, framed in riveted brass. Driftwood bases, rocks, and grape wood complement free-standing sculptures.
Seeking a way to demonstrate her passion of treasure hunting at the sea and in nature, Karen Watson uses a variety of materials and found objects to create dimensional mixed media paintings. Working with acrylic on texturized or collaged surfaces, she builds layers of intrigue and small niches housing items, both common and unique, just waiting to be discovered.
All are invited to the open to the public Artists Reception at the Gallery on Saturday, May 14th from 5 to 8 pm.
