Artists juried into Tamarack’s David L. Dickirson Fine Art Gallery in Beckley, WV in the past 18 months are featured in the exhibit opening with a reception on Sunday, January 22. The show will be up through March 23.
This collection was inspired by the shadows cast by objects along the roadway onto surfaces in front of me as I drove the thousands of miles this past year. One image stayed in my mind of large round hay rolls lined up at the fencerow and 10:00 sunlight.
There are two sets: one depicting the grassy field and then textured roadway; the other with a light snow on the grasses and roadway showing a slushy tire track. The fifth image is the view out our kitchen window. Winter now with oak trees retaining their light brown leaves and the other hardwoods barren against a cold white sky. I incorporated alpaca yarns, spun in Hampshire County at the Capon Bridge Fiber Works into the piece adding a soft texture.
All the works are 5″ x 13″ mounted on 8″ x 16″ covered stretcher bars They are priced at $135 each and available directly from the Tamarack-Gallery.
