In June two artists— Marion Griffin and Sarah Higgins— will have solo exhibitions at TAG/The Artists Gallery.


MARION GRIFFIN will show work inspired by gardens in an exhibition titled “Interpretations.”
“The joy of contemplation is at its peak when I am one with nature,” explained Griffin.  “As a long time meditator, I am inspired by the beauty of gardens, especially the famous Innisfree Gardens in New York and the gardens I’ve created around my home. Intuitive by nature, I long to find and paint the prevailing spirit, the essence of what is beneath and sometimes hidden in gardens.”

As a former dancer and an Abstract Expressionist, Griffin explores movement, space, exuberant color and the essence of beauty— “All of which are endless in a garden,” she said.  “Gardens inspire me to be more sensitive and pay closer attention to all that is there, seen and not seen... something I am constantly searching for in my art.”

SARAH HIGGINS will show a series of new paintings titled “Balanced Chaos.”  

“I love color— which is obvious— and design, which I hope is also obvious,” Higgins said.  “On the other hand I also strive for a sense of movement and energy that may even be chaotic at times.  My challenge is to make it all work.”

Higgins feels that, as a painter she is “only part of the equation.   I produce the work, but you view the work.  You bring your own perspective into the process.  It may or may not be what I thought I was conveying.  

“One of the reasons I enjoy doing abstracts is that they are not dictatorial,” she said.  “You see what you want to see.”

In addition to the solo exhibitions, TAG will have a new show of work by the other members of the gallery.  Since “Easels in Frederick” takes place during June, the members show at TAG will feature landscapes and landscape-inspired work.
