On view in the Main Gallery will be Chemistry of a Color, textiles by Haylie Zapantis. Her dye
work explores methods of producing color, piecing, seams, and saturation with large-scale dye
installations. Chemistry of a Color focuses on various dye colorants such as indigo and acid dyes.
They are color studies on cloth using various fibers such as silks, rayon, velvet, cotton, and wool.
“The color play, transparency and light keep the works in constant flux,” says Zapantis. “The
space brings excitement beyond a wall, allowing the exploration of color with each dye process
on a playful and intimate scale.”
The Frable Gallery will feature Collective Efforts, works in various media by James Madison
University Art 3D Faculty members Sukjin Choi : Ceramics; Mark Rooker : Metal; Robert
Mertens : Fiber; Alyson Taylor : Wood; Dymphna de Wild : Mixed Media; Greg Stewart : Mixed
Media; John Ros : Mixed Media.
Kay Franz will exhibit Burnt Offerings, sawdust fired ceramic works, in the Helena Davis
Gallery. This body of work explores surface textures, colors and finishes within a framework
of consistent forms. “My work is greatly influenced by prominent artists like Shoji Hamada,
Bernard Leach, Paul Soldner and Peter Voulkos, as well as early pottery from the Americas,
Japan and Korea,” she says.
In the smallspace Gallery , The Birds, paintings by Maureen McCarron. “ After living in
Manhattan for 35 years and working on my Angels as Archetypes painting series, which I
exhibited at art space in 2004, I moved to Provincetown,” McCarron writes. “Once there, I took
time out from painting to write.” Upset about the 2016 elections, McCarron found her way back
to the brush and began the bird portraits. “While not as intense as the Archetypal Angels had
been,” she continues, “the birds are still observant guardians as well as messengers, and equally
compelling.”
The Suzanne Foley Gallery will show Something borrowed, something new - new year, new
view, works in all media by art space Artist Members.
Gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday from 12-4 p.m. Please contact the gallery
administrator at artspaceorg@gmail.com, or phone the gallery at 804-232-6464 for additional
