Join us May 17th at 5:30 pm for an opening reception for Pink Dog Creative resident mosiac artist Holly de Saillan. De Saillan, who is also a local art teacher, brings whimsy and playfulness to her nature inspired works. Her colorful mosiacs will be on display through June 10th.
Of her work, de Saillan writes:
My art is a combination of exploration, experimentation and expression. I revel in the processes of the breaking down, the rebuilding, the combining, and the layering of the material with which I create. My work is a reflection of the processes of nature – what is shed becomes the new. Un-fired clay trimmings and pottery shards come full circle in my work. Observing the small beetle in the garden, or finding shells on the beach – nature and her castoffs contain an endless array of color, texture, and deep runic beauty waiting to be explored. It is an intimate relationship – the love of color, texture, pattern, beauty and the joy of creation. In my quest to negate my negative impact on the environment, my artwork seemed the most obvious place to honor that desire. From my raku fired re-claimed clay pieces to my tumbled pottery shard mosaics, I can make a personal statement – a statement that deeply attests to my love and reverence for art and also for our world.
This opening is part of Third Thursdays on Depot Street. Look for other events at Nourish & Flourish, the Lift Studios, The Magnetic Field & Theatre, & Planet Art (375 Depot), as well as at the Artery. As always we will have complimentary wine and light food available during the show. Dinner reservations are suggested. Hope you can join us!
