Friday, February 3, 5-8 pm
Join us as we celebrate the artists of HART Gallery, a nonprofit organization benefiting homeless and other non-traditional artists. Additionally they teach classes at other agencies around town which serve low-income seniors, at-risk inner-city youth and others who face both physical and mental challenges. Growth of the project extended to Memphis this past year where they opened another facility. Owner Ellen Heavilon says the ability to create does so much for the morale of people who feel beaten by life that they often gain enough confidence to move on to jobs and into their own homes. Several HART Gallery artists will show work along with our member-artists at the front wall area.
Help the HART artists. It’s a great time to clean out your studio or craft room and donate your unused art supplies to HART Gallery. They need acrylic paints (no oils), mediums (especially Mod Podge) and associated painting surfaces. A large donation box will be set up all month at In-Town Gallery. We will also be accepting donations of cash and gift cards for area art supply stores.
Sculpture by Denise Bizot
featured in Inspired by Matisse Museum Exhibit
Many of our customers are familiar with Denice Bizot’s metal sculptures, especially her lace-like metal pieces. Last year the Montclair Art Museum, in Montclair N.J., purchased one of her elaborately pierced car hoods. Now the museum has featured it in their Inspired by Matisse exhibit.
“Drawn entirely from the Montclair Art Museum’s permanent collection, this show comprises 53 paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures by 42 American artists. It accompanies and extends the special exhibition Matisse and American Art,” states the museum’s information.
The museum website says that “The inspiration of the bold, simplified profiles and the vibrant colors of Matisse’s inventive cut-outs (which he referred to as “drawing with scissors”) are are also evident in works by Romare Bearden, Stuart Davis, Ellsworth Kelly, Denice Bizot and Mickalene Thomas…” Bizot is thrilled to have her work displayed among those by the titans of contemporary art, including Richard Diebenkorn, Kenneth Noland and Robert Motherwell.
The Montclair Art Museum, founded in 1909, is esteemed for its superb collections of American and Native American Art. Inspired by Matisse will be on view from Feb. 5, 2017 to July 29, 2018. For more information, click on their website www.montclairartmuseum.org
Owned and operated by a dynamic group of local artist members, the gallery exhibits a diverse range of styles, mediums and price points. Because each member is selected through a double jury process, the caliber of their original art is high, yet accessible and affordable. Several of our artists have received national recognition for their talent.
When you visit, two member artists will greet you and are available to answer questions about the work in the gallery or to help you make a selection.
And be sure not to miss our First Friday celebration.
On the first Friday of each month, the gallery’s Featured Artist program showcases the work of a different member artist or two. This special event is launched with an opening reception and extended hours.
On the first Friday of November and May – twice a year – the gallery buzzes with activity as member artists bring in all new works. These two events are particularly exciting because the entire gallery is full of new art to celebrate the holiday season and the coming of spring.
A great variety of media offers something for all tastes.
At The In-Town Gallery you’ll find:
Oil, acrylic, and watercolor paintings; mixed media; assemblage; photography; pen and ink drawings; wood arts and furnishings; metal sculpture; jewelry; stained and fused glass; pottery; fiber and fabric art; and greeting cards made from original work.
