Fresh Gallery presents a trio of artists in July! Enjoy the work of Fresh Featured Artists Marian Chamberlain and Linda Passeri, plus Guest Artist Nancy Dornan during First Friday and Second Saturday in July.

 

Marian Chamberlain:  Originally from the Springfield and Bolivar, Missouri areas, Chamberlain’s work has been influenced by a strong personal drive, an art and art history based education, and her experiences as an educator.  She works in printmaking, pastels, graphite, watercolor and a variety of other media.  Printmaking has been a recent passion for her, as it allows her to combine drawing and an involved artistic and technical process.

 

Linda Passeri:  A commercial artist since 1977, Passeri began sculpting in clay in 2009. Her works are hand formed and carved ceramic sculptures.  She is best known for her Steampunk Creatures, such as cats and birds.  She adds metal, glass and found objects to her pieces to evoke character and personality.  Passeri enjoys testing the limits of what she can do with clay and working straight out of her imagination, taking the piece from her mind to her hands.  Look closely at her work and a smile will be found in most.

 

Nancy Dornan: Nancy began painting six years ago.  In taking a variety of classes and workshops, she explored a variety of mediums and styles.  She says attending a workshop where she was encouraged to paint on large canvases with abandon early in her art career was freeing, and the result is her stunning paintings. Each piece has a balance of color and texture that is enthralling. “I love to explore color and texture in a variety of subjects … from foods to travel experiences to light shimmering on water or light reflecting on a city scene.  Bold colors and bold textures contrasting with subtle smooth paint passages appeal to me,” she says. Fresh Gallery will also offer hands-on art activities during the Second Saturday Chalk Walk, noon.-5 p.m July 11.
