Fresh Gallery is thrilled to present Featured Artists Marian Chamberlain and Angel Brame plus special event Impressions of The Wild, featuring artwork by animals at Dickerson Park Zoo and Rutledge Wilson Farm, and live animals on site noon-3 p.m. during the Aug. 9 Second Saturday. Marian Chamberlain’s work has been influenced by a strong personal drive, an art- and art history-based education, her experiences as an educator, and her personal experiences residing in other states. Of her art and process, Chamberlain says, “I love to draw, and working with dry point printmaking and etching allows me to incorporate that with a technical process that is challenging and produces a finished product that is classic and timeless. I love the multi-step process of working a metal plate and then printing it. Sometimes you know what you are going to end up with, and sometimes you are surprised. Some plates are victories the first time, and some take more working to reach a finished state. I like to experiment with the process.” Marian will demonstrate her art during Second Saturday Aug. 9 Angel Brame is a potter who works primarily in wheel-thrown, high-fire stoneware. A Best of Missouri Hands member, “I mostly work with functional pieces, though I make a point of creating a hang-able foot ring on my larger pieces. It is a great thrill to me knowing that my works are being enjoyed, sometimes every morning by the coffee pot, rather than just gracing a wall and collecting dust,” she says. Regarding Impressions of the Wild, last year, Fresh presented its inaugural show of animal art and the event was such a huge success that they decided to do it again! Paintings range from Hippopotamus Kisses to Domestic Rat Tracks, and we can’t forget the Siamang Brush Paintings! This year, the keepers will bring a box turtle, snake, and a skink to do live paintings noon-3 p.m. on Second Saturday. Proceeds of animal art sales go to The Ozarks Chapter of the American Association of ZooKeepers.
