“Through Their Eyes” will open January 4th. There will be a Meet-the Artists opening reception on “First Thursday”- January 5th, 6-8pm.
Although the body of artwork by Kathy Gibian and Sarah Nobles is vastly different in texture, color, balance and form, their approach is similar. Working in acrylic and oil both artists explore their landscapes through a lens of clarification. What are they seeing and how does it interpret to canvas? These are the questions asked and attempts at answers are their resulting works.
Ms. Gibian’s artwork uses geometric forms to build landscapes that are dreamlike and unearthly while maintaining familiarity that invites the viewer to look closer. While the works of Ms. Nobles embrace the regional landscape of northeast Tennessee with soft shapes and textures producing romanticized and recognizable rural settings. The juxtaposed landscapes will build fantasized cities and fall away to rural landscapes in a show that invites you to see Through Their Eyes.
Also Opening on January 4th in the Members Gallery are four area artists: Ruthie Edwards, Johnson City, TN (oil) Carol Murray, Marion, VA (Water color, oil) Joyce Kistner, Bristol, VA (Acrylic) and Kitty Williams, Bristol, TN (Acrylic,Pastel)
