Homewood Studios Resident Artists Show: New Work
As is becoming a tradition, (this will be the third annual), the eight artists working in Homewood Studios will offer recent work ~~ ranging from photography to carved gourds, from painting to print making, from constructed objects to altered books ~~ all during the month of August.
Also part of this tradition, the artists will open their studios during the public reception. This studio visit aspect of the show has been well-appreciated by gallery visitors.
Opening Reception - Friday, August 1st from 6p to 9p
Gallery Talk - Tuesday, August 19th beginning at 7p
Tuesday, September 2 - Wednesday, September 24, 2014
RICHARD AMOS: New Directions (abstract paintings)
Our good friend, the excellent painter, Richard Amos, phoned a few days ago to say he has been busy painting...in a new direction. Well-known and well-loved for his large African mask paintings, Richard has begun working on some abstract pieces - same large format size, same brilliant colors, but searching for something new, something as yet unknown.
Twenty to thirty of these new pieces, along with a few "old friends," (his masks), will be on view during this show.
Opening Reception - Friday, September 5th from 6p to 9p
Gallery Talk - Tuesday, September 23rd beginning at 7p
Wednesday, October 8 - Wednesday, October 29, 2014
SAORI: Weaving "the beauty with lack of intention"
Our friends at TSA, with whom we have put on three shows recently featuring adult artists with different brains, want to present the work of a group of women who have been learning an unusual weaving process called SAORI. Their artist/teacher, Chiaki O'Brien, recently returned from a visit to her home in China.
SAORI is a contemporary hand-weaving technique created in Japan in 1968 by renowned artist/weaver Miaso Jo. SAORI places more emphasis on free expression and creativity than on specific technical skill or regularity of the woven cloth. Since no two weavers are alike in personality or in artistic vision, it is natural every single cloth, freely woven by unique individuals, is beautiful in a different way.
Irregular selvages (edges) and accidental skips of thread add to the un-programmed beauty of SAORI cloth. This acceptance, and in fact celebration, of the unexpected is essence of "the beauty with lack of intention."
The six women working with Chaiki on this project have each prepared new work for this show. Each has grown in their mastery of this democratic weaving style, and each has evolved a growing sense of herself as an artist.
Details about the opening reception and possible demonstration workshops will follow soon.
Friday, November 7 - Wednesday, December 3, 2014
SCOTT HOLLER: iPhone Photography
Scott attended the opening of The Transparent Self in October 2013. At that time he told us about using his iPhone to create photographs of a certain mood and mind. We talked about his having his own show and he said he'd like his iPhone photographs to comprise the basis of his show.
More on the work, dates for opening and gallery talk, &c. anon.
