DJ Berard: Color Fields and Residencies in the Gallery Feb 3 - 18

Written by Lynn Long. Posted in Exhibits

Color Fields and Residencies will be a show of color on a large scale. Instead of a window into the mind of the artist, this show will be doorways of saturated color filling the wall space. Dry hot desert air, lack of water, cloud free skies and dramatic sunset colors, canyons and blue skies, will all be represented on large format canvas. Residency paintings and drawings are small windows into the places I knew as the resident artist. Ireland images of an Irish castle and the surrounding area. The mountain images of Cades Cove and mountain streams. Most all the work was started on site and then moved to the studio to finish.

All are cordially invited to the Opening Reception on Saturday, February 3, from 1 to 3pm.

Gallery hours are 1 - 4pm weekdays, 10am to 2pm Tuesdays - Fridays, through February 18.

Lion King "Cherrywood Challenge" National Quilt Show at The Barn

Written by Lynn Long. Posted in Exhibits

Come see the stunning winners of "The LION KING Cherrywood Challenge" quilt contest! The contestants (representing 41 states and 7 countries) each started with three shades of the official Lion King golds and black to create a twenty-inch square quilt, using whatever technique they liked. Accent colors of Cherrywood were allowed. Since the theme started out as “King of the Jungle” until Disney came on board, you will see a variety of lions as well as influences from the Broadway hit musical and animated movie. After jurying down 304 entries, the Traveling Exhibit of 120 amazing quilts has started touring around the country. The variety is amazing, the creativity is inspiring and the workmanship is incredible. This is one exhibit not to be missed. These are small works of art using hand-dyed fabric as their medium - all forms of fabric manipulation and fiber art are represented. Twenty of the quilts have been chosen by Disney to be displayed on Broadway for their 20th Anniversary in 2018. Cherrywood Hand Dyed Fabric, from Baxter/Brainerd, MN, acquired the endorsement of Disney to present “The LION KING Cherrywood Challenge.”

Come see this exhibit in January! Gallery is open January 4 & 5 from 10am to 2pm. For the remainder of the month, Gallery hours are 1 - 4pm weekends, 10am - 5pm weekdays (closed Mondays).
