RECEPTION Friday, November 29th, 6:00 — 9:00 pm
Each holiday season the members of the Hillsborough Gallery of Arts transform the gallery to showcase original ornaments and hand-made gifts. The gallery’s 22 members work in a variety of media, providing a wide array of fine art and fine craft for holiday shoppers. The glass art includes hand-blown vessels, ornaments, solar lights, paperweights, and jewelry by our two glass artists, Pringle Teetor and Susan Hope. Fiber art on display includes framed fabric collages, hand-dyed scarves and hand dyed stitched cloth by Ali Givens and Alice Levinson. The jewelry in the show covers a variety of styles and techniques, from copper and bronze to Arianna Bara’s and Nell Chandler’s sterling and fine silver necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings, some with gold accents and stones. Visitors will also find metal sculpture by Jason Smith and Jude Lobe’s copper sculptures of Shamans and Zuni Bears. Lynn Wartski’s handmade art dolls, Garry Child’s and Evelyn Ward’s pottery, Micheal Salemi’s turned wood, and carved ironwood with turquoise and silver inlay by Larry Favoritie. Eric Saunders’ Fine art photography as well as Jude Lobe’s encaustic and cold wax paintings, Linda Carmel textured paintings, Eduardo Lapetina’s explosions of color and our visual artists’ Pat Merriman, Lolette Guthrie, Marcy Lansman, Michele Yellin, Chris Graebner, oil and acrylic paintings, scratchboards, and mixed media works that festively surround the three dimensional pieces on pedestals.
