Lor Clark, Metamorphosis

Friday, January 19, 6-8 pm
Saturday, January 20, 5-9 pm

Metamorphosis, the name of her 42’ sailboat, is a fitting metaphor for Lor Clark’s ever-changing life in art. Clark has always enjoyed art, and in college majored in fine art and minored in industrial design. Now in her mid-nineties, Clark continues to grow and create new pieces in the third dimension. This exhibit includes paintings and sculpture, both figurative and modern in clay, metal, acrylic, some early, some as fresh as this week, all revealing how in both life and art Clark is constantly growing and changing.

Another Time and Place: Artwork created with a love for vintage by Beth Fields and Andrea Holmes

Friday, February 2, 6 – 9 pm
Saturday, February 3, 6- 9 pm
Sunday, February 4, 1 – 4 pm

“Another Time and Place” captures Fields’ and Holmes’ fascination with the stories vintage items tell, and the ways that pieces of history mesh with the present reality to reveal unexpected beauty. An obsession with old stuff is woven into all aspects of this artwork. Arranging pieces together in vignettes allows the individual stories to join in a visual chorus. The pieces “talk” to each other, ready to reveal whispers of the past repurposed.

Our beautiful logo was designed by Weeda Hamdan. She began her design using sumi ink and brush. Here is her philosophy behind the design: “The meaning of the logo stands for the infinite circle of community that supports each other (C and O), the V represents a tick/check mark/selection/achievement, the E represents a flag or a banner on a mast. The logo is a freehand of a couple of strokes to express a moment when the mind is free, the body creates. I was inspired by Fibonacci spiral using the Golden Ratio proportions and Enso, which is Mutual Circle or Circle of Togetherness.”
