November 1-30, 2015
In November, Arts in the Village Gallery announces the Featured Artists exhibit, Abstract Art: Mind over Object, presenting the fused art glass designs of David & Dale Barnes , along with the contemporary abstract paintings of Karen Hutchison.
David & Dale Barnes design and bring to life a wide range of kiln-formed fused and cast art glass work. Inspired by organic shapes along with architectural elements, the Barnes create pieces ranging from dramatic, dimensional sculptures, to functional platters, serving trays and bowls, to colorful pendants and earrings. A variety of techniques are used, often within one piece, to create intriguing layers of light, transparency, and texture.
Abstract painter Karen Hutchison looks within to render unique and engaging designs that arise from her own thoughts, emotions, and experiences. Working in acrylic paint and mediums, Karen is able to create a diversity of styles in her work from soft dreamy color studies to dynamic textured pieces that have a structural feel — occasionally in neutral palettes, often in a selection of compelling hues, and always engaging.
Meet Dave, Dale and Karen and other gallery artists, and enjoy light fare at the Gallery Reception on Friday, November 6th from 5-8 pm.
