Three Artists with Interconnected Visions
The Hillsborough Gallery of Arts presents Interconnected Visions, a show of new work by artists Eduardo Lapetina, Pete Rodrigues, Lynn Wartski. May 24th – June 19th.
Art, the expression of creative skill and imagination, is what furniture maker Pete Rodrigues has been inspired to display in Interconnected Visions show. One sees his skill in the way in which the pieces are constructed and discovers his imagination in the design and uniqueness of each piece. "My pieces in this show display a mixture of wood tones, curves and angles that create functional pieces of furniture to be enjoyed both now and by future generations."
Lynn Wartski's work continues to be centered on anthropomorphic figure pieces created primarily out of needle felted wool over the wire and quilt batting armature she creates. "I've found that I increasingly challenge myself to imbue these figures with their human-like characteristics as minimally as possible. I strive to have the gesture and expression of the animal tell the story rather than simply having them dressed up in clothing. I constantly look to evoke a sense of wonder, tell a story, or offer a bit of humor. My work is most often lighthearted, but occasionally my animal creations have a bit more to say."
INTERCONNECTED VISIONS will be in the gallery from May 24th through June 19th with an opening reception in the gallery on May 27th from 6-9pm.
