Opening Reception: “New Gallery/New Work”
January 12 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
HOO-RAY!: The Glen Arbor Arts Center celebrates its new gallery with the inaugural exhibition “New Gallery/New Work,” on Friday, January 12, 2018. The exhibition opens with a reception for the exhibitors and the public on January 12, 6-8 p.m. “New Gallery/New Work” is an invitational showcasing the work of 25 visual artists from Benzie, Grand Traverse, Leelanau, and Manistee counties. Exhibitors were invited to contribute a piece of work created between May 2016 and November 2017. This time frame mirrors the period during which the GAAC undertook a campaign to expand its building at 6031 S. Lake St. in Glen Arbor.
BUT THERE’S MORE: As part of the exhibition, the GAAC will offer two different “Talk About Art” interviews with two different sets of “New Gallery/New Works” exhibitors on January 21 and February 11, 2 p.m. in the gallery. Both events offer a chance to hear these artists talk about the process and challenges of keeping their work fresh and new. Sunday, January 21, 2018: Jesse Hickman, mixed media paintings and constructions; Richard Kooyman, painting; Sheila Stafford, painting. Sunday, February 11, 2018: Beth Bynum, mixed media collage and assemblage; Mary O’Neill, non-representational compositions in PLART [fused recycled plastic] Leading these conversational discussions is GAAC Gallery Manager Sarah Bearup-Neal. “Talk About Art” conversations take the artists and audience into the process of creative work, and engages artists in conversations about their thinking, their tools, and the materials they use. “Talk About Art” is free and open to the public. “New Gallery/New Work” is supported by Northern Building Supply. The exhibition continues through February 22. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. during the week, and noon – 4 p.m. on Sunday.
