Kissed by Fire ~ Handmade Pottery Painted by Flame @ Potters’ Guild of Frederick
Since the beginning of time, fire has been used to create pottery for the storage and use of mankind. This month, the Potter’s Guild of Frederick will be showcasing work that utilizes this same primal technology. Fire not only transforms clay into ceramic, it also kisses the pieces with the faintest blush to the most striking, bold stroke of color. Invite your friends and family to enjoy our work at our 14 South Market Street Gallery.
Associates Talk @ TAG/The Artists Gallery (1-3pm)
TAG will showcase its associate members: Luc Fiedler, Gillian Collins, Donna Quesada, Christine Mayo, and Sandra Fritter. The show runs from Feb 3-26 with an opening reception on Feb 4 from 5-8pm. Join the associates for an artists talk on Sunday, Feb 5 from 1-3pm. Gallery is open from noon-4pm.
Meet a Local Artist @ NOMA Gallery
When you stop in at NOMA to see our current feature and group show, you’ll be meeting a local artist. “I live in downtown Frederick and am currently working as a special education assistant for Fredrick public schools. I’m mostly a printmaker, but I also paint, make books, and make sculptures. I enjoy combining different processes and textures to create one-of-a-kind monoprints. I am inspired by organic materials and discarded objects, and often use these objects as textures in my prints. My work explores chronic pain, surgery, and the interaction between the human body and the natural world.” Julia Schrecengost.
