hob’art: Current Exhibit
Reception: February 6, 6 – 8pm
Friday, February 5 – Sunday, February 28
Gallery Talk: Sunday, February 21, 3:30pm
This four person show will feature work by a Fused Glass artist (Rich Roberts) and 3 photographers (Roy Wright, Don Sichler and Tom Egan). Each artist will bring their own personal approach to their medium and give the viewer a thought provoking experience.
Thomas Egan – Photography
Tom’s photographs take the viewer to a surreal world of mirror images. A place of brilliant color and strange perspectives. The goal of the artist is to capture a familiar place and make it unfamiliar, to take you on journey to a place you travel through everyday, but have never seen before.
Roy Wright – Photography
Roy Wright celebrates old city imagery, rythmic movement and still life, fusing the discipline of his many years as an architectural photographer with his love of pop art. Borrowing psychedelic imagery, colors, technique, and screen print from different periods of the pop art of the 60’s, he creates compositions melding simple and complex, solid and void patterns, lines and an element of elegant fun.
Rich Roberts – Fused Glass
Rich Roberts is a self-taught glass artist. With no formal training, he has spent the last 18 months transitioning from copper foil & mosaic towards kiln-formed glass creations. He might spend 5 minutes to envision a design and all week working out all the technical details, as fused glass has numerous material constraints! His work varies from satire to realism.
Don Sichler – Photography
People often look at things without really seeing. Don’s photos challenge his viewers to drop their notions about how they expect the human body to look and to see the human form in a new asexual way.
The Reception will be February 6, 6 – 8pm. Please come by and enjoy some wine and enjoy the art at the beautiful gallery. For those who are interested in learning more about the technique behind the work, there will be a Gallery Talk on Sunday, February 21, 3:30pm, where you can hear a brief description about how the art was created and asked questions of the artists.
