BozART Group - "20 Years and Counting"

unnamed 3WriterHouse is proud to present the works of the BozART group for the months of December and January. For almost 20 years BozART Gallery had a presence on Charlottesville's Downtown Mall as a small eclectic gallery representing a group of engaged local artists. Started with just four members in 1995, BozART incorporated and expanded, operating as a member owned co-operative. In conjunction with other galleries on the Mall, new art was exhibited every month and the tradition of "First Fridays Openings" began.

In June 2014 the gallery closed its doors, but a majority of the artists (23 in all) decided to remain as a group and exhibit together in local venues. Since that timeunnamed 4 the group has had at least one show per month at various businesses, public and private galleries, a winery, grocery store, churches and other venues.

The mission of the group remains intact – "to represent accomplished artists who are committed to creating original works of art, to provide them opportunities for exhibition, to be part of an art community, to share resources with other artists, and to further develop an artistic reputation. "

We are excited to share this exhibit with you.

The First Friday opening reception is FREE and open to the public. The exhibit will remain on display though the end of January. 

Deborah Wyatt
Passages Land and Sea
October 31, 2015 – November 28, 2015

unnamedWriterHouse is proud to present the works of Deborah Wyatt for the month of November. Deborah Wyatt has painted in oils all of her life. Known for an often fast, loose, expressive style, she is moving toward more abstracted interpretations of her subjects, focusing often on their effects in color and geometric shapes. While she enjoys heavy use of blues, greens, and browns called forth by both the subtle shades of Virginia and North Carolina mountains and the salty air of their seasides, she also joyfully submits to the more vivid demands of La Vida Latina. Her most recent inspiration has come from two diverse new landscape subjects, both supplying a ready mix of geometic shapes with dynamic color, namely the Grand Canyon and the city skylines of New York and Atlanta.

Another recent addition are her "mini" paintings, normally 4 X 5 inches, which she began creating as a promotion for a local gallery but which have taken on a life of their own. All of her work (with the occasional exception of crayon, as used for sketches) is in oil, usually on loose linen then laid down on board. The minis are on canvas panel.
