A Glimmer of Nature

Saturday, June 9th from 6-9 PM

 

The ARTery Gallery's June exhibit, A Glimmer of Nature, emphasizes the love of nature through art. Retired teachers Scott and Debbie Helfand express their artistry through clay, wood, glass and steel. Printmaker Carol Ann (Mainardi) Lyons' embraces the natural world with her realistic portrayals of birds and also her imaginary worlds of mermaids and sea creatures. Together these artists provide a wide array of unique gifts and treasures that are featured throughout the gallery year-round.

 

The Helfands also promote environmental stewardship by using raw and natural materials, often reclaiming, recycling and repurposing "found" materials, to create pieces that reflect their affection for the natural world.  Debbie enjoys working in clay and wood, sometimes with whimsical themes such as her adorable ceramic gnomes. Other popular items include her hand-built dishes and jewelry that often contain real leaves and various flora in their construction. Scott combines the rustic beauty of steel and wood in his aesthetically functional works such as side tables repurposed from vintage sewing machines and attractive coffee tables fashioned from live-edge tree slabs. 

 

Carol Ann Lyons has been an art therapist, teacher, professional printmaker, and bookbinder for the last thirty-seven years. Her recent series of acrylic bird paintings on wood will eventually serve as prototypes for woodcuts and monotypes she will display in the future. For Lyons, art is a vehicle for her feelings and is sometimes tied to events she has experienced. Lyons also considers much of her work allegorical as she explores the relationships between the lovely sea creatures she creates, their inner world, and what they encounter within their environment. 

 

You can meet Scott and Deb Helfand and Carol Ann Lyons at the opening reception on Saturday, June 9th from 6-9 PM, which includes refreshments. The ARTery welcomes the public to this free cultural event.

 

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.

 

The month-long exhibit will be on display from Thursday, June 6th through Monday, July 8th.
