Reflections & Patterns – an exhibit by copper artist Anne Jordan and photographer Mary Louise Ravese
In November, Arts in the Village Gallery presents the Featured Artists exhibit Reflections & Patterns, a fusion of the artisanal copper pieces by metalsmith Ann Jordan with the contemplative “painterly” style of photography of Mary Louise Ravese in a fascinating medley of color, texture and imagery.
Ann Jordan’s inviting sculpted and hammered copper bowls, trays, mirrors, fountains, and other pieces reflect nature-inspired shapes and patterns. Pieces are textured and formed by hammering and brazing, and finished with delightfully subtle hues and patinas reflecting copper’s natural beauty.
With a keen eye for capturing the dramatic and beautiful, even ordinary objects and spaces take on an air of the remarkable through the lens of photographer Mary Louise Ravese. Intriguing patterns and textures are revealed in her images of colorful landscapes, nature close-ups, and abstract reflections. Each photograph is complemented with carefully chosen mats and frames that add another layer of interest and expression to the photography.
Meet the artists during a free, open to the public reception on Saturday, November 16th, from 5 – 8 p.m.
