The Tevis Gallery will feature REACH an exhibit of sculptural works by five regional artists that takes visitors into a lean, tall forest of art works casting elongated shadows on the gallery walls.
As the bustle of the holiday season ends, the starkness of winter sets in. Just as the bare trees reach into the winter sky, the sculptures in REACH appear to reach back in time, to an outer world and into our imagination. The gallery will be as still and quiet as a winter’s day.
The public is invited to an opening reception for “REACH” on Thursday, January 8 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Complimentary hors d'oeuvres and cash bar will be part of the festivities.
Mary Bowron (Boyds, MD) will feature her elongated forms in clay that have been fired in a wood-fired anagama kiln. The forms take on the color of the intensity of heat that is directed at each object, from earthy reds to ochres and blacks. These forms, though not more than 20” tall, writhe and rise up.
Patrick Timothy Caughy (Catonsville, MD) has ceramic forms and sculpture inspired by his recent pilgrimage to Assisi, Italy. Tall vessels and Tau crosses reflect his last year’s journey into soul and spirit.
Enjoy intricate wood and metal sculptures by Patrick McGuire (Jarrettsville, MD) inspired by Ireland’s deep Celtic image symbolism and rich history through the ages. Calligraphy entwines with animal imagery atop a tall spire.
Virginia Sperry (Eldersburg, MD) paints three-dimensional stories with steel, polymer clay, yarn and any other material to create woven vessels that tell a story. Working in a vertical format gives the artist a feeling of transcendence toward the sky.
The ceramic sculptures created especially for this exhibit by Terry Whye, (Finksburg, MD) are tall reaching arms inspired by a small image that has been on the inspiration board in her studio.
