Read what our featured artists say about their work in the Featured Art Exhibit:
may 21 – jun 24
OPENING RECEPTION, Friday, May 25th, 6 – 9 pm
A potter, a photographer, and a mixed-media artist come together this month as the Hillsborough Gallery of Arts continues its Featured Artist series. Come see new work by Garry Childs, Pat Merriman and Eric Saunders.
Garry Childs writes of his new work, “I have been making a series of pieces in the past few years in which I apply local clays to the surface of my pots to develop complex textures. My new work for this show will combine this technique with the bright colors and carving seen on my planters, vases and bowls.”
Mixed-media artist and founding member, Pat Merriman, describes her inspiration for Combinations:
Photographer Eric Saunders writes, “For my work Combinationsmeans three different things. It can mean combining complementary or opposing elements in a picture, or combining more than one picture into a collage, or finally combining different digital techniques to manipulate a picture. I have made 10-15 photographic images utilizing all three of these methods, and work in all three methods will be part of the featured artist show.”
