The Old Schoolhouse Art Galley Presents:
Connected - Paintings by Janny Thompson & Ceramics by Ester Strijbos
Please join us at our opening on Friday July 27th at the Old Schoolhouse Art Gallery from 6:00 - 9:00. Refreshments provided.
Ester Strijbos and Janny Thompson explore the ideas of variations and connections by presenting series of pieces that are similar or connected in some way. What are the possibilities for creativity within sameness? What are the possibilities for variation and change within the limits of relationship? What are the connections between part and whole?
In keeping with the themes of connections and creativity, an exhibition of mail art created by the artists and others will be displayed in the lobby of the gallery. Three years ago, a small group of friends began to create and exchange mail art as a way of facilitating creativity and connection during a long west coast winter. Since then, the group has grown and has exchanged hundreds of pieces of mail art. On Friday August 3 from 6 to 9 pm, visitors will be able to use materials provided on-site create their own piece of mail art.
Show continues Sat. July 28, Sun. July 29, Fri. Aug 3, Sat. Aug 4 and Sun. Aug 5
Gallery Hrs: Fri 6:00 - 9:00, Sat & Sun 2:00 - 6:00 or by appointment
