Guy Wolff: Master Potter in the Garden
This exhibit will be available for viewing until July 10, 2013
Known internationally for his work, Guy Wolff has been turning mud into beautiful pots since he was a teenager. His traditionally inspired horticultural wares grace gardens and homes throughout the U.S., including those of Martha Stewart, the late Steve Jobs, the garden writer and designer Joe Eck, as well as leading botanical gardens and house museums. His pieces have been frequently featured in magazines such as Horticulture, People Magazine, Victoria Magazine and elsewhere. An authority on early English and American ceramics, Wolff will showcase his signature garden pots and his slipware, including plates and platters.
Greenhouse Effects: Photography by Marjorie Gillette Wolfe
Marjorie Gillette Wolfe’s graphic study of greenhouses has been ongoing for two decades. In these photographs shape and form are isolated, revealing a new context. The work has expanded from literal interpretations to more abstract imagery as she has concentrated on minutiae of the structure and the effect of the elements. Her most formal images reflect a studied and deliberate style. In recent years she has been creating composite photographs and working in color.
Off the Page: Altered Books, Narrative Sculpture and Scrolls by Maxine Payne
Books tell stories---fact or fiction, fantasy or reality. Words help us to visualize their meaning, and each of us has a unique view of what those words might mean. We visualize things within the context of our experience, but what if we took the next step and re-imagined the book form itself? What if a book became a sculptural object or a sculptural illustration, and what if the oldest form of book, the scroll, became a multi-layered painting or a backdrop to a dream? We invite you to consider an alternate universe where books step “Off the Page”.
You are invited to a reception for the exhibitors on Sunday, March 10 from 12- 2pm
