Fourteen fabulous artists! Three Days Only!
We are thrilled to showcase Beverly Buchanan, whose oil pastels and shack sculptures are in major museum collections throughout the country. Buchanan lived in Athens but moved to Michigan several years ago. This show is a rare opportunity to purchase a Buchanan drawing or shack.
Also featured is Rich Panico, who will exhibit a prolific body of expressive energetic portraits and landscapes in conte and pastel.
Ceramic artist Jasey Jones unveils a colorful series of bright, optically shifting images on dinner plates, as well as his signature coffee mugs. Emily Tatum debuts delightful storybook–like animated figures in clay. Daniel Sizemore, who comes from a family of potters, presents solid functional pottery.
Elizabeth Barton will offer an array of quilts, watercolors, photographs, and arashi-dyed t- shirts. Gaybriel Jones knits beautiful, well-crafted, sometimes intricate, scarves, hats and fingerless gloves. Suzanne Reeves sews cheerful handbags with new and vintage fabrics. Suzanne will have chicken pincushions and earrings as well.
Two jewelers approach the medium in contrasting ways. Annette Hatton’s clean and crisp work incorporates sterling silver with gems. Annette Paskiewicz works with luminous colored glass set in sterling silver; both in her elaborately cut necklaces, pins, and earrings, as well as fanciful figurative wall art that combine glass and watercolor.
Mary Porter will focus on richly colored interiors and night landscapes. She will also have a limited series of small framed chair paintings.
The festive atmosphere is extended outside with an indie craft shop of new artists: Kayla Cox, felted sculpture; Ed Edderson, drawings about contemporary culture, and Anne McKenzie, paintings.
Please join us for a glass of wine at the opening reception Friday November 30th from 5 to 8. Show continues Saturday December 1st from 9 to 6 and Sunday December 2 from 12 to 4. Athica 4 lease, Chase Park Warehouses, 160 Tracy Street, Athens.
