James Violette ushers in the new year as our Featured Artist! James will be presenting his new show "Throwing Light / Casting Shadows" with a huge array of his sculptural lamps in every size and form. James creates ambience through his balanced pieces, truly three-dimensional art that casts dramatic light and shadows. What better way to kick off this new year than to Throw Light at the darkness and feel a renewed sense of hope for the future.
Along with James, we welcome artists Jeffrey Hall, who specializes in mixed media, and light photographer Linda Flicker to the gallery! Jeffrey utilizes up-cycled, industrial, and organic materials in his art-making. Using a flashlight, a long exposure, and a completely darkened studio, Linda "paints" light and shadow onto her artistic compositions. The work of Jeffrey and Linda are illuminated by James's art on the main floor of the gallery.
The show runs from January 12 - March 14, 2021, with a virtual "Meet James Violette" event on March 6 - more info to come!
