Labor Day Weekend Artist Reception at Gilman Contemporary “…Then the Wind Blew North”

September 4, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

| free

This September Gilman Contemporary will feature two artists who present their own unique visual expression of the natural world. Exhibitions run August 29 through September 30, 2015.

Entranced as a child by the visual diversity of the relationship of light on water and sky, Wendel Wirth developed an obsession with the subtle changes of these atmospheric conditions. Wirth documents these variations in her newest series Then The Wind Blew North. The photographs in this series were taken over several days from a single vantage point on the Caribbean Sea. Capturing the subtle palette changes brought on by light and rain, Wirth’s photographs inhabit a space between painting and photography, abstraction and reality. It is in this unfamiliar place Wirth connects the viewer with the intrinsic power of nature.

In the East Gallery local artist Valerie Stuart’s abstract color fields will be on exhibit. Combining marble and plaster dust, along with oil glazes Valerie Stuart creates color field paintings with atmospheric luminosity. Stuart takes viewers temporarily from their present state of mind and into a world of abstraction where color plays as the catalyst of emotion and communication.

Join us for Gallery Walk Labor Day Weekend, September 4, from 5-8pm. Artists in attendance.
