Collected & Gathered
Lark & Key Gallery and Boutique
Lark & Key Gallery and Boutique presents ‘Collected & Gathered’. The exhibit opens Friday, August 3 from 5-8pm during the South End Gallery Crawl and will be on view through September 29th (during regular gallery hours Tues-Sat 11-5).
‘Collected & Gathered’ is a mixed media group exhibit featuring new works by Janet Eskridge, Bridgette Guerzon Mills and Deborah G. Rogers, with guests Leah Mulligan Cabinum and Colleen Riley. Using a variety of mediums, each artist gathers their materials to capture moments, memories and physical attributes of the world around them.
Working from her home in Lincoln, NE, assemblage artist Janet Eskridge creates tiny worlds to enter and explore. Using old boxes, found objects and encaustic she carefully crafts each piece - adding, removing and layering items until she has a sense that they belong together. Bridgette Guerzon Mills, a Towson MD based artist, incorporates photo transfers, paper, fibers and objects found in nature, to give depth to her organic, melancholy paintings. Her artwork speaks to the cycles of life, growth, decay, memory and the passage of time. Self-taught ceramic artist Deborah G. Rogers hand-sculpts charming, narrative pieces, using air-dry clay decorated with her distinct drawing style, that express and communicate her ideas, questions, and pent up opinions of the world around her. Deborah’s home studio in Norfolk, VA is filled with treasures that serve as inspiration or provide that perfect little something needed to make a sculpture just right. Each piece is finished with layers of varnish and wax that provide an otherworldly feel to the work.
Guest artist, Leah Mulligan Cabinum, lives and works in rural York, SC. Focused primarily on large scale installation art, varied materials and techniques support the cyclical theme that is ever present in her work. For ‘Collected & Gathered’ we will be showcasing Leah’s woodblock sketches, a series of smaller works that explore cycles of life. Our guest potter, Colleen Riley, strives to create functional pieces that are elegant, yet comfortable for use and inviting to the touch. Her handmade pots reflect and reveal the colors, layers, patterns, and textures of the landscape surrounding her home in Farmington, MN.
