SEPTEMBER SHOWS & EVENTS
“Left Out” - An Arlington Artists Alliance Juried Exhibit about Artistic Choices
August 25 – September 26, 2014
In the Focus Gallery during September, Gallery Underground presents “Left Out”. An artist makes many decisions before and during the creative process: what to include in a still life; what elements to omit from a landscape; whether to use a warm or cool color palate? Or, is that “oops” moment actually a happy accident? Often the finished work is not at all like the original concept. Each work in this show will include a short statement by the artist on their original inspiration, and how it evolved as the work progressed. You will be able to stand in the artist’s shoes for a few moments in viewing the finished piece. Come and enjoy the show, have a glass of wine and talk with our artists about this interesting process!
This show was juried by James Farrah who taught painting at Chandler-Gilbert Community College and The Mesa Arts Center, both in Arizona. Now back in Pennsylvania, James instructs privately and leads annual workshops at Hameau Studios in Belleville, PA. James holds signature memberships in numerous professional artist organizations, including the American Watercolor Society, the National Watercolor Society, and the National Acrylic Painters Association.
