On Feb 2, the Arts & Culture Alliance is pleased to present:
National Juried Exhibition of 2018. The Arts & Culture Alliance is pleased to present its 12th annual National Juried Exhibition, a new exhibition featuring selected works from 44 artists throughout the United States. The exhibition encompasses all styles and genres from both emerging and established artists working in a variety of media such as photography, acrylic, pencil, fibers, oil, paper, and more. Over $1,000 in cash awards will be announced at a brief awards ceremony at 6pm.
John Humphries: Constellations of Drawings. Humphries is a visual artist, gardener, and designer focusing on communicating, through abstraction, stories and phenomena from nature and mythology. His creative work takes the form of watercolor drawings and ceramic objects. Constellations of Drawings includes collaged photographic elements and other constructed pieces of wood floating above the plane of paper.
Brandon Lutterman: Sculptural Vessels and Pots. Lutterman’s current body of work is created to celebrate life and to help people recognize that we need to be stewards of all forms of life, not just our own. His glazes are developed through ongoing glaze research, as he aims to develop unique surfaces at low, mid, and high fire temperature ranges.
Yvonne Hosey: The Hungry Month. The Hungry Month pieces evoke the hardships and beauty of winter. Done in watercolor, scratchboard, acrylic and glasspaint, the colors are muted, and the images are of the inedible - the scarce, precious and beautiful - in the month of February.
It’s a First Friday full of events at the Emporium Center. Don’t miss it!
