"Inspired by Nature”
Thursday, July 7th through Monday, August 8th
Opening Reception Saturday, July 9th from 6-9 PM
Refreshments will be served.
The ARTery Gallery's July exhibit is titled "Inspired by Nature," bringing together the works of watercolorist Yeoshin "Helen" Hwang and potter/crafter/maker Scott Helfand. These two very different artists are both closely aligned with nature, whether using nature's products as a medium or as inspiration for their creations. This show will include two of Yeoshin’s ink and watercolor paintings on rice paper: "Hoping for Peace" featuring Ukraine's national flower, the sunflower and “Blessing Life,” her painting of plum blossoms. Helfand's stoneware mugs, created with actual tree leaves thrown into the mug wall, will be on display as well as his rustic modern tables with bases welded from steel and tops beautifully fashioned from raw edge wood.
Yeoshin (yuh-shin) is a Korean artist working with both traditional and modern Asian art materials and styles. She started her career over a decade ago under the tutelage of Lee Dong Il in Seoul, South Korea where her work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions. Yeoshin illustrates her love of nature through the ten plant types that traditionally make up Korean art. She approaches her subjects in a relaxed meditative manner and seeks to convey their innate poetry to the audience.
Scott Helfand, a retired educator, has a deep affinity for working with his hands. He creates functional works of art that highlight the raw aesthetics of pottery, the rustic beauty of steel and wood, the natural patina of oxidizing steel, and the radiance of glass. Scott especially enjoys using heat and fire to refine raw materials such as glass bottles that he repurposes into artwork.
The ARTery Gallery, located in the historic Forest Hall, is a cooperatively owned and operated fine art gallery, serving the regional artists and art lovers since 1996. The gallery features a wide array of artistic talent ranging from traditional oil, watercolor, and photography to sculpture, jewelry, textiles, pottery, and collage.
You can meet Yeoshin and Scott at their opening reception on Saturday, July 9th from 6-9 PM, which includes refreshments. Music will be provided by Karl Spicer, a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, including Upright and Electric Bass, Guitar, Flute and Japanese Bamboo Shakuhachi Flute. He has performed with such notables as the Woody Herman Big Band, vocalist Ernestine Anderson, Buddy DeFranco, and Steve Cardenas. The ARTery welcomes the public to this free cultural event.
The month-long exhibit will be on display from Thursday, July 7th through Monday, August 8th.
