FIRST FRIDAY October at Area 61 Gallery
ABSTRACT // 3 Views
Featured Artists: Anna Carll, Kathy Hampton & Allen Hampton
Join us at area 61 for FIRST FRIDAY* October. Our featured artists for October offer three unique perspectives of abstraction. Each of these career artists continue to evolve in their work and we are honored to host their latest creations.
Anna is ehxibiting her latest works in The Erosion Series - new weavings, pods and an artist book, "Bella" named after her magnolia tree that inspired the overal series. Her pods offer new dimension with the addition of metallics and several pieces are designed to work together or stand alone.
Kathy's whole house remodel that evicted her from her studio for an extended period of time was the impetus of her latest work - Circles of Time. When she returned to her studio she explored her fascination with circles since childhood and their symbolic infinite nature of energy, movement of the seasons and cycles in time.
Allen's new work is titled 30, 60 90?
Originally conceived as three parts, 30,60,90 is based on Tesla's statement that 3,6,9 holds the key to the universe and reflection on various mile markers in his life - 30th wedding anniversary, 60th birthday and the possibility of being 90. It's also a tribute to the two most influential women in his life.
We look forward to seeing you First Friday October and as most of the artists we represent are local or in the immediate surrounding area, they will be on hand to meet you, discuss their process, help you select a new piece for your collection or commission a piece for you or a gift.
