Village Arts Gallery
Our mission is “to awaken the joy of learning, creating and enjoying art in our community. We support professional and emerging artists by providing affordable, high-quality arts education for children and adults, as well as providing places to share their work. Village Gallery of Arts is a non-profit (501c3) organization, receives no taxpayer money and is made up entirely of volunteer members.
Featured Artist Medha Joshi:
My art form is Lippan, a traditional wall art from rural Gujarat, India, made of clay and mirrors. My murals are mounted on wood, but the traditional supports are the interior walls of houses. Each petal and each leaf should be shaped in seconds, as they dry quickly.
Featured Craftsman Rae Campbell:
As my work progressed, I incorporated some of my early arts into my glass work – I went from simple abstract glass pieces to adding photographic glass images. More recently, I am learning to incorporate the look of my fiber arts background into my recent work. It is not fabric, but glass strings that look like woven fabric.
Big, Bold Painting by Lana Nelson: “Autumn Lake”, oil and recycled materials on canvas
This painting was a trip during the pandemic. It started as an unfinished crochet rug project 50 years ago and in 2020 moved from storage in my attic to express the unreality of our world in 2021. I think the capital and dramatic opening of the ballet, “Swan Lake”, also works with “Autumn Lake.”
Sunday October 10, 3 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Meet the artists and enjoy the new show with refreshments and a cold drink.
