Opening Reception in Stoughton
Friday, August 16th, 5 pm - 9 pm.
Kay Brathol-Hostvet & George Lowe
Working primarily in soft pastel, Kay Brathol-Hostvet renders regional landscapes infused with her affection for and fascination with her Midwestern home. Each painting is inspired by a specific place and time, serving as visual record of the landscape it depicts often suggesting the deep history these bucolic scenes hold. Iowan ceramicist, George Lowe, creates hand-made functional work that emphasizes ceramic’s inherent tactile nature. Though he is inspired by ancient pottery and traditional folk art, Lowe strives to create work that is designed to invite contemporary use and enhance daily life.
Horizon Line: Group Show
A single line placed horizontally across the picture plane grounds the viewer in visual space. The horizon is an edge approached but never reached. Artists, working in a variety of media, depict the line where sky meets earth from their own unique point of view. Artists in this exhibit include Carol Chase Bjerke, Barry Roal Carlsen, Mary Hood, William Lemke, John S. Miller, Charles Munch, Ann Orlowski, Ben Peyer, John Ribble, Allan Servoss, Mary Ulm Mayhew, Diane Washa, Jonathan Wilde, Chris Gargan, and Nathan Hatch.
Cup Show curated by Ryan Myers
Perhaps the simplest, most utilitarian vessel, the cup possesses an immense history and enormous formal variation. This exhibition curated by nationally recognized, Madison ceramicist, Ryan Myers, features over 50 artists from across North America, using a wide variety of techniques and styles in clay. At the opening reception of this exhibit, only one of each artists’ works will be displayed at a time; once the displayed cup has sold, the next cup from that artist will be placed on the pedestal for sale creating a lively event.
