WriterHouse is proud to present the work of local artist Warren Craghead for the month of April.

Mixing images and words, pictures and poetry, Craghead constantly sketches as a way to explore his everyday experiences. He is also interested in the idea of 3D drawing: folding, cutting, and gluing as a way to build books, origami, and freestanding paper sculptures. His new book, We Are Waiting In A Forest, which is created from drawings inspired by images of the battles in Ukraine, will debut at this exhibition.

WriterHouse is proud to present the work of local artist Scott Supraner for the month of August.

These ceramic wall reliefs expand upon traditional ideas of tilework and mosaic to create a new form that is both painterly and sculptural. In these pieces, rhythmic bas-relief patterns are interwoven with planes of color to produce a complex visual field. Lively abstract images evoke the natural world, both earthly and celestial.

The Friday opening reception is FREE and open to the public. Refreshments courtesy of DuCard Vineyards. The exhibit will remain on display through August 31st.

WriterHouse is proud to present the work of local artist Jeanette Cohen for the month of September.

Jeanette has spent the past 35 years in the mountains and coasts of the Mid-Atlantic States. Her art revolves around her appreciation of rural life, and her work is an expression of those feelings, hopes, and fondest memories. She is captivated by how light plays on her subject as well as the ever-changing shadows, colors, and shapes that occur as the day progresses.

Janet Pearlman

 

 

WriterHouse is proud to present the work of local artist Janet Pearlman for the month of February. Influenced by Matisse, Pearlman uses blocks of color to create layered works where shapes and forms slowly emerge onto the painting's surface.

She wrote, "Layer after layer is laid down in paint and charcoal. As the piece proceeds, lessons about living reveal themselves, surprising, vivid and deeply felt. The painting becomes a moment to moment adventure: color, image, emotion, at once stimulating and soothing, a reach for harmony".

 

The exhibit will remain on display through February 28th.

WriterHouse is proud to present the work of local artist, Lee Alter and her students for the month of January.

This exhibition comprised of watercolor pieces demonstrates a belief in an inner landscape. Each work attempts to capture the essence of the flower, the person or the scenery painted. Carl Jung believed in a collective unconscious where the mind collects and organizes personal experiences in a similar way for each member of a particular species. But while an image can be as universal or “collectively known” as a flower, it can also be interpreted in a wide variety of different ways by an individual upon a canvas.   

 The First Friday opening reception is FREE and open to the public. Refreshments courtesy of DuCard Vineyards. The exhibit will remain on display through January 31st.

WriterHouse is proud to present the work of local artist, Stacey Evans for the month of December.

Evans is a landscape photographer. Her work focuses on capturing the great American landscape while in motion. In the past, she has used the train to facilitate this type of work.

She writes, "Photographing stillness while in motion forces me to give up some control-and that thrills me as an artist. It defied much of what I had been taught about landscape photography."

As her work has evolved, she now constructs depictions concentrating on the juxtaposition between familiar and unfamiliar places, creating her own landscape by blending printmaking techniques with photography.

The Friday opening reception is FREE and open to the public. Refreshments courtesy of DuCard Vineyards. The exhibit will remain on display through December 29th.

Blake HurtFirst Friday Opening Reception, November 1, 2013 5:30-7:30 PM

The First Friday opening reception is FREE and open to the public. Refreshments courtesy of DuCard Vineyards. Exhibition will remain on display through November 30th.

Local artist Blake Hurt's work has transformed over his career from what he coined "ink collages" to watercolors exploring form and style. Hurt's "Ink Collages" are complex photographic drawings manipulated through computer programming. A portrait of a real estate lawyer might be infused with floor plans of a home mingled with the deconstructed surface of his face. A Greek scholar might have the stories of Orion the huntsman dancing over his lips. What is within a person makes its way visibly out through this unique process.
