Fresh Gallery presents Featured Artists Marian Chamberlain and Linda Passeri during the month of July in a show titled The Power of Two.
Marian Chamberlain is an area native who has been influenced by a strong personal drive, an art and art history based education, experiences as an educator and personal experiences residing in other states. She works in printmaking, pastel, graphite, and watercolor, as well as a variety of other media. Chamberlain’s work can be found across the United States from Florida to New Jersey to the west coast. She is a member of Fresh Gallery, Best of Missouri Hands, the Springfield Regional Arts Council, the Southwest Missouri Art and Craft Guild, and the Springfield Visual Arts Alliance. Chamberlain says of her art, “I am moved by particular moments that I feel the need to capture in my work. I enjoy many different mediums but printmaking has become a passion for me, as it allows me to combine drawing and an involved artistic and technical process.”
Linda Passeri, has been a commercial artist since 1977 and has worked as a sign painter, muralist, pin-striper and graphic artist. Only in more recent years has Passeri begun sculpting. Her home and studio are located in the Moon City Creative District in North Springfield. Passeri is a member at Fresh Gallery, Springfield Regional Arts Council, Best of Missouri Hands, and the Southwest Missouri Art and Craft Guild.
Passeri says of her work, “I find inspiration imagining organic subjects as mechanical beings. Sometimes, I paint what I envision, other times, three dimensional work is the result. I don’t like to limit my work to any one medium. I work in clay, metal, acrylic paint, found objects, etc. so that I have no constraints as to how I bring the idea to life.” Passeri’s work is whimsical and highly detailed. Her ability to combine multiple media results in pieces that are intricate and multifaceted. There is something intriguing on every surface. Meet the artists during Art Walk July 1 and join them for a Second Saturday reception 4-6 p.m. July 9!
