Experimentation: an exhibit by ceramicist Melinda Croft and painter Alice Mullen

How do artists stay inspired? Think outside the box to create something unique? Join us as Arts in the Village Gallery presents Experimentation, a Featured Artist Exhibit by ceramicist Melinda Croft and artist Alice Mullen as they share some of their recent work and explain how they find new ways to express themselves.

With the Gallery since it’s inception in 2012, Melinda Croft has exhibited diverse ceramic items from bowls to pendants, and tiny decorative chairs. She’s continuing to mix things up with new shapes of bowls and other items. Influenced by turn of the century pottery studios, Mel’s pottery echoes organic shapes and forms found in nature.

Also a founding member of the Gallery, artist Alice Mullen works primarily in oils. Her paintings at the gallery have explored a broad spectrum of subject matter and moods. This month her more eclectic creations will be on display. Inspired by the work of her peers, she’s used a variety of media to pursue her interest in pattern, dimension and layers.

Meet the artists during their gallery shifts and see their latest ideas.
