Five new mixed media drawings have been matted, framed, and delivered to the gallery for this Friday's art opening. Teresa, the curator/owner of the art & light gallery, asked me to design a series of large work to display during the first ever Greenville Mini-Book Collective. The framed pieces measure 24" x 30" and media includes watercolor, ink, graphite & colored pencil.
All of the artists in the show used paper as their drawing surface & sculptural medium-the collection includes handmade books, assemblage, collage, paintings and drawings. Teresa has some dreamy vintage book mobiles installed in the gallery. It sets the perfect scene for the exhibition this month & I can't wait to see how everything looks on April 6th for the opening!
If you find yourself in the upstate on Friday night, come out to the First Friday event on Pendleton Street from 6-9 pm! The show will be up the entire month of April, Thu & Fri 10-5.
Teresa is a wonderful promoter and active part of the Greenville arts scene; here is an excerpt from the gallery newsletter about this month's show:
There is no more compelling proof of art's importance and vitality in Greenville County than the number of creatives who came forward to share history, values, architecture, happenings, cultural activities, life, places, and other such artifacts through the first ever Greenville County Mini Book Collective -- the collection is sheer beauty and inspiration and the opening is just one week away. You are invited to our First Friday opening on Friday, April 6th (6-9pm) and Saturday, April 7th (10am-5pm). The exhibit runs the entire month of April.
Also showing during the month of April: Rachael Madeline, Christin O'Bryan, Jason Wagoner and yours truly, Teresa Roche.
