Inside & Out
Our June exhibition features self-taught and long-time gallery artist, Russell Whiting, and celebrating our 20th Anniversary of the Sculpture Garden. Mr. Whiting's sculpture will be on exhibit both inside the gallery and outside in the Sculpture Garden. He uses the acetylene torch in his carving techniques to create his impressive steel sculptures. He is strongly influenced by classical forms executed with contemporary concepts. His imagery stems from sources such as religion, ancient cultures, and cinema which result in fusions of the past and present.

Opening Reception Friday, July 5, 6:30-8:00pm
Our July exhibiting artists incorporate collections from home, nature, and personal history to create their unique works. In her intricate, patterned, ceramic sculptures Kelly Jean Ohl explores the magic of texture through her use of familiar household tools and kitchen utensils. Vicki Essig uses delicate weaving and found objects to show the contrast between the fragile and the strong in her quietly translucent works. Using objects he has collected since childhood, Dan Essig creates mixed-media book structures using fourth-century binding techniques incorporating unusual woods, handmade paper, fossils, and mica.
