OH SPRING! May Show - Starts Sat. May 1 with Art Walk 5-7
Brackenwood Gallery’s show “Oh Spring!” will joyfullywelcome in the season with featured artists Sharon Spencer and Nola Allen.
Sharon Spencer, a stone and bronze sculptor for 35
years, is “jumping into the unknown” with a new path, creating nests and
vessels from paper, clay, bamboo and other “things” of interest. Sharon says, “This new direction, this freedom, gives me
a sense of flying…a great liberation.”
Nola Allen’s watercolor roses, irises, rhododendrons and other flora will grace the walls of the gallery welcoming spring as only flowers can. Nola’s fondness for the beauty of nature shines through in these larger than life paintings.
Joining our featured artists are Janie Cribbs and Sara Saltee. Janie gets enormous pleasure out of painting birds: “Larger than life in various surroundings birds seem to be looking through a window into our earthbound lives inviting us to fly."
Sara Saltee is an assemblage artist. “Arranging seemingly random and disparate pieces into harmonious and meaningful little worlds is, for me, the Whole Enchilada; a deeply satisfying and joyful process.” Sara’s delightful mixed media shrines and shadow-boxes will add to the celebration and poetry of spring at Brackenwood!
