New Mixed Media Art By Anne Nordhaus-Bike On View: Show Opens Friday, July 7
'How To Build A Mountain' mixed media work showcases Nordhaus-Bike's new artistic direction, explores themes of permanence and impermanence.
Curated by WMG co-founder Beate Minkovski, Reunion II features work by 51 of the gallery's artist members as a salute to member artists across the years and the growing visibility of women's art in the world. Nordhaus-Bike, a longtime WMG member, will display one of her latest mixed media works, "How To Build A Mountain."
"I'm delighted to be part of this exhibit and to celebrate Woman Made Gallery and its accomplishments over the past 25 years," said Nordhaus-Bike. "The piece I'm exhibiting reflects the very latest direction for my work, and I'm so excited to share it with the public for the first time in this exhibition."
Nordhaus-Bike's piece combines collage with cotton thread, crocheted thread, and delicate unryu ("cloud dragon's breath") paper. "I've been exploring themes of permanence and impermanence and the spiritual origins of our material reality through the paradox of delicate and even fragile materials used to represent some of our planet's most heavy and "earthy" features, namely mountains," Nordhaus-Bike explained.
