River Gallery features paint, clay and fiber all this month.
Stop by the River Gallery this Friday to enjoy the opening reception for this month’s exhibit, “Connections.” The show features three unique talents: Tennessee artists Nancy Jacobsohn, North Carolina artist Lisa Klakulak, and Georgia artist Scott Hill.
Hill uses the time-honored technique of glazing in his paintings, building up layer after layer of thin oil paint on canvas or antique objects. His pieces often feature solitary figures set against vast landscapes, creating a sense of eerie tranquility reminiscent of 16th-century Spanish landscapes and 19th-century Romanticism.
Klakulak is a fiber artist who honors humanity’s long relationship with nature by using natural materials and traditional craft processes. She is especially interested in the use of natural dyes from minerals, plants and insects.
Jacobsohn draws her inspiration from ancient Chinese, Indian and Etruscan artifacts. Her work is stylized and seeks to capture the spirit of the animals that she depicts. She works primarily with clay, reveling in the direct connection between hands and sculpture.
All three artists will be present during the show’s opening reception on Friday, Oct. 3 at 6:30 p.m., and Jacobsohn will do a clay demonstration on Saturday, Oct. 4 at 11 a.m.
