TWO UNUSUAL EXHIBITS AT THE ANDREWS ART MUSEUM
These two exhibits are unusual because the Andrews Art Museum is proud to have its first traveling exhibit. This exhibit began in Miami, will be on exhibit in Andrews the month of June and will travel on to Woodstock, New York to the Taleo Art Center where it will remain July and August. We hope to have this traveling exhibit each year.
You have seen the art of Freda Tschummy, the sculptor with her "Encaustic" paintings made of wax and metals heated with a torch to create shape and color. There is the work of Jean Cerasani with her dye on paper "Still Life", creating fun shapes with bright colors. In addition we have some small paintings of Areca Whatmore from her "Allegorical" series including the story that inspired them, the "Peg Leg" series. Annette Rawlings is presenting three small paintings from her "Summer Series". These paintings are acrylic on canvas.
Fred Hunt is a Coconut Grove artist and has put to canvas some charming paintings of the unique cottages known for their character in this area of Miami. AnnaMaria Windisch-Hunt has become well known for her Art Deco "Beach Life Guard" stations. AnnaMaria has been given the key to the city of Miami Beach for her dipictions of these structures.
Jane Harris is a wonderful painter, I especially love her cats and birds. This grouping is of her birds. I find her paintings haunting, as the birds don't appear to be in a happy place but an unknown place, perhaps these have become lost and caught in the snow. Janes' art leaves alot to the imagination.
A German Expressionist, Hans Feyerabend has some wonderfully expressive paintings. Very strong in his use of color and composition. Hans makes a definate statement with his art. A must see at the exhibit.
The art of Theresa Callouri creates a relief of the figure demonstrating a new direction in art with the figure. Her figures are all different in color and expression. You could write a paper on what each means, they are sure to provoke thought.
The opening reception for both exhibits will be on Saturday the 7th of June from 5 to 7 pm at the Vallery Town Cultural Arts and Historic Society building.
Jaimi Bernard is an artist from Eureka, California, who creates three-dimensional found-object art. Her mixed media pieces combine wood, wax, paint, metal, and organic material like moss and flowers.
Duane Hosein is a Trinidad born, Florida based visual artist. He spends countless hours hunched over blank surfaces, hoping to create something beautiful.
Acrylics and ink are his primary mediums. His artistic inspiration stems from a love of children's literature, nature and an abhorrence of reality. He has done commercial designs for a fashion line and various record companies. In addition to his artistic endeavors, he is a member of the sound collage collective Hoor-paar-Kraat.
Painter Andrew Macrae is inspired by an ongoing pursuit to understand a complex and confusing universe, as well as the logical scientific symbols that represent this otherwise irrational world. He pulls ideas from memories of the science illustrations, symbols and colors he remembers from Disney cartoons, looking through LIFE science books, and retro commercial art. Andrew's work is, "Bridging, pushing, pulling, and exploding the fake universe of the design in the macro and micro sense of things."
