April Exhibits Are Open!

If you thought last month’s shows were good, wait until you see what artists brought to April’s exhibits at The Art League Gallery.

The themed exhibit, “Earth,” invited artists to address the planet and our relationship to it. Some pieces incorporate found or recycled materials:

"Rebirth" by Carlos Beltran Baldiviezo
"Reclamation" and "Gingerbread" by D.J. Gaskin

The April All-Media Exhibit includes works in all media and covering any subject matter. This is just a sampling:

"Bird by the River" by Charla Wilkerson and "Limitless" by Andrew Caraiso
"Elliot" by Riana Bovill

And certainly not least, this month in the solo artist room, “Somewhere in the Orient II” showcases the raku ceramic work of Art League and Torpedo Factory artist Marcia Jestaedt. The exhibit, opening today, centers on large robes composed of raku tiles, accompanied by ceramic planters and even a crown and slippers. The room is more of an environment than an exhibit — you can read more about it and the raku process on the exhibit page.

"Lakshmana Planter" and "Deco Jewel" by Marcia Jestaedt

These shows are up through April 30, so don’t miss out! The opening reception, including awards and a meet the artist, is April 12 at 6:30 in the gallery. More photos below!
