Ripped Paper, Burnt Clay -- an exhibit by mother-daughter artists, ceramicist Amy Oliver and collage artist Karen Oliver

During August, Arts in the Village Gallery presents Ripped Paper, Burnt Clay, a Featured Artist Exhibit by ceramicist Amy Oliver, and her mother, collage artist Karen Oliver, in a show reflecting this pair’s love of getting their hands dirty creating art that reflects the beauty of the world around them.

Inspired by the energy of life that surrounds her, Amy Oliver uses porcelain and stoneware clay to throw pots that reflect her love of nature and connection with others.  Pots are then dipped, carved, painted and sculpted to create an array of one-of-a kind vessels, platters, and vases, rendered in unique shapes and colorful earthy tones.

 

Karen Oliver’s impressionistic paper collages, often initially inspired by her personal photographs and sketches, and are built up using hand-torn pieces of colorful and textural paper.  Influenced by the masters, Cezanne, Degas, Van Gogh and others, Karen’s work often includes landscapes and figures in natural poses and settings.

 

Meet the artists and enjoy some refreshments during a free, open to the public reception on Saturday, August 23rd, from 5 – 8 p.m.
