Be in Touch at the Hillsborough Gallery of Arts

eTradeWire News/10522102
The Hillsborough Gallery of Arts continues its Featured Artists series this month with new work by Garry Childs, Jude Lobe and Pat Merriman: a potter, a painter, and a mixed-media artist.

HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. - May 19, 2019 - eTradeWire -- Garry Childs describes his process, "All of my work for the show is formed on a potter's wheel. I glaze my pots after they have stiffened up but are not yet completely dry. I then carve through the glaze into the still damp clay to achieve the various patterns seen on the pots. Texture is a very important aspect of the finished pieces which should be looked at with both eyes and hands. I want people to feel free to 'Be in Touch'."

Jude Lobe reflects on her new work, "As caretakers of this planet, it seems to me we have much to learn from nature if we can observe quietly. When I am hiking along a trail, or kayaking through marshes, I become present in nature. It's a calming and stress-relieving feeling to be in touch with nature. In my artwork, I create my impressions and remembrances of the feelings I had when alone with nature. My landscape paintings, aren't recreations of the scenes, but rather an expression of the emotions I had while communing with nature. My copper sculptural works are symbolic representations of Native American spirit guides, particularly shamans that help with balancing our spiritual, emotional, and physical health."
