Join us Friday, December 6 from 6:30 to 8pm for the Opening Reception for our December exhibit, "Triple Whipple"! This exhibit will be up December 1-31.
Our December show features the third installment of an artistic family all fascinated by assemblage, found objects, and the juxtaposition of unexpected images. LYNN WHIPPLE collects objects like old photographs, wooden boxes, and lost letters to create her often whimsical mixed media assemblages.
Finding inspiration in the combinations of things he enjoys, JOHN WHIPPLE juxtaposes different kinds of images for a dramatic and sometimes playful final product.
Using discarded objects like watch parts, buttons, and pillboxes, jewelry artist MARTY WHIPPLE gives new life to collected antiques by combining them with other materials like silver and brass. This is a show you will not want to miss!
