October Exhibit
October 1-31

Brought together by a passion for their craft, the artists in our October show Connections find inspiration in the timeless resilience of humankind through its refuge in the spiritual, physical, and psychological. Tennessee artist Nancy Jacobsohn, uncovering her inspiration from Ancient Chinese, Indian, and Etruscan artifacts, seeks to capture the spirit rather than realistic portrayals for her guardian animal masks. North Carolina artist Lisa Klakulak finds her connection with fiber through humanity's long relationship with natural materials and the transformation over time and cultures creating contemporary pieces symbolizing the security and protection of structure. Georgia artist Scott Hill's mix of styles from the 16th Century Spanish Landscapes and 19th Century Romanticism serves as the influence for translucent paint layers over canvas or antique objects often depicting figures encompassed by their surroundings thus evoking a sense of meditative reflection.

November Exhibit
November 1-30

River Gallery's November exhibit peers into "the self" of our three exhibiting artists and their bodies of work. Whether the artists are preserving themselves in their pieces or relinquishing themselves to their pieces, they are coming about it the same way: process. Georgia artist David Kidd's mixed media paintings take on a life of their own through the building and exposing of layers which evolve unto themselves while he is left as a catalyst. Contrariwise, Kentucky ceramicist Patrick Dougherty creates functional ceramics that are a reflection of him; form is conceived by first throwing a piece on the wheel and then the self, spoken through paint, is applied not "on" the form but "of" the form. Kentucky mixed media painter Jennifer Bowman loses herself to her rhythmic process of veiling and recovering the moments of a piece, giving the painting a memory of its own. Join us at River Gallery on Friday, November 7 from 6:30-8pm for our Opening Reception.
