Join us this First Friday of August in celebration of artworks by encaustic artist Angie Gillespie and ceramicist Erin Nguyen! Meet the artists, explore their work and enjoy light refreshments and cupcakes with us.
About the artists:
Gillespie is a painter and a sculptor of sorts, pushing and melting wax, mixing and etching, building up texture upon texture. She has fine-tuned her work over the last years, creating landscapes of translucent color, while allowing the medium to bubble and blend and eventually land and solidify to create a completed work of art.
Erin Nguyen is our visiting ceramicist for the month of August, and will fill the gallery with her hand-built vessels. Each one, whether free-standing or hanging in clusters upon the walls, feels like it has sprung right out of the earth. Gestural and organic in shape, her work is inspired by the element of wind and it’s relationship with the Earth.
