at Gallery Underground in May
Dates: May 3-28, 2021, Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
– No opening reception due to COVID safety protocols –
Gallery Underground in May presents, in our Focus Gallery, Patterns, an all-member show of works highlighting pattern and texture. Pattern exists in nature as well as in designed objects, and real or actual texture can dramatically enhance a work of art. Our artists were tasked with creating works that repeat or echo elements to communicate a sense of balance, harmony, contrast, rhythm or movement, or to imbue works with a visual and tactile sense of texture.
In our Main Gallery are new works by our members in all themes, in media including oil, acrylic, pastel, water media, sculpture, glass, ceramics, wood and metalwork.
