FEATURED ARTISTS: Julie Maynard and Karen Peacock
Free Workshops: Sun., April 30, 2-4
TAG / The Artist's Gallery is offering a collage workshop with Julie Maynard from 2-3 pm followed by a creative writing workshop with Karen Peacock from 3-4 pm. Come for one or both. All levels of experience welcome!
LIFE SIZE with Julie Maynard
In her exhibit, Life Size, Julie Maynard presents a form of painting with paper, using bits of colors and text to build up layers that suggest the slow accumulation of time.
A member of TAG since 2011, Julie Maynard has installed a group of collaged figures, all life-size. They range from humans standing nearly six feet tall down to a one-inch beetle.
The people and animals in the installation create a room full of beings intent on their own stories but aware of each other as well as the viewer.
UNDER THE SAME SKY with Karen Peacock
Karen Peacock has been exhibiting mixed-media work at TAG since 2018. A road-trip enthusiast, her show, Under the Same Sky, features state maps as the substrate of her wall-hung art. The resulting images are finished with materials including paint, sand, and photo transfers.
In this series, Peacock explores our country’s ever-changing skies. Without labels, it's impossible to tell if the celestial images are from South Carolina or South Jersey.
March 1 - April 30, 2023
Opening Reception: Saturday, April 1, 5–8
Meet the artists and enjoy refreshments and live jazz from 5 to 8 at the April 1 opening.
TAG Talk: Sunday, April 2, 1 pm
Maynard and Peacock will discuss their work on Sunday, April 2 at 1. As an added bonus, Wayne Drozynski will join them as he performs poetry inspired by their art. Afterwards the public will be invited to participate in an open reading as time allows.
