Resurfacing In The Aftermath Of 2020
Three artists "Resurface" after a year of change, in a new show at the Hillsborough Gallery of Arts. Jeweler Nell Chandler, potter Evelyn Ward and painter Michele Yellin are exhibiting new work in a show titled Resurface, from May 28 to June 20.
For potter Evelyn Ward this past year has been full of changes. "Last fall I underwent brain surgery to deal with a painful facial nerve condition. I am happy to report that the surgery was successful."
For painter Michele Yellin "This past year, during the pandemic, time has stood still. And yet somehow moved on. I lost my mother this year for the third time. First, I lost her to her advancing dementia, then to the lockdown, and finally to her death from Covid-19. I mourn. I paint. I think. I paint. I remember. I paint. I dream. I mourn. I paint. I resurface, back to the light, and I paint."
Resurface will run both online and in the gallery from May 28 through June 20.
