The ARTery Gallery will host an opening reception for Claude Larson, as she exhibits her latest collection, titled “Essential Connections”.
These works were produced from materials on hand when regular sources of supplies became temporarily unavailable. Ample free time and solitude gave rise to abundant creative experimentation. Breaking free from the monotony of the social restrictions that kept everyone isolated, Claude took to her studio and looked for divergent ideas through exploratory design, diverse color palettes and a transformation in process.
Stepping out of the usual random process that drives Claude’s past work, these pieces are more analytic in nature and deliberate in process. Selecting very limited color palettes in both her textile and acrylic pieces and trying unusual combinations to push her creative abilities gave rise to this body of work. It is a representation of the silent voice of art that keeps us connected to ourselves and each other.
This show will be on exhibit at The ARTery from July 9 through Aug. 3, with an extended afternoon/evening reception scheduled for Saturday, July 11, from 3-8 p.m. to allow adequate space for visitors as they connect with the art and the artist. The exhibit will also be viewable on the gallery’s Facebook page: ARTERY GALLERY MILFORD PA.
