A Glimpse of Art in Yellow Springs this July
Cast paper and miniatures are featured in the galleries now occupying the former Joe Holly’s Dry Cleaner building in Yellow Springs this month. Alice Robrish’s intensely beautiful and tactile cast paper portraits are on view at the Yellow Springs Arts Council Gallery through July 14, and Miniature Works of Art at In a Frame ended this holiday weekend.
Robrish, primarily a ceramic artist, has translated her skills in clay to creating plaster casts with which to create her paper casts. The work is intimate and organic; each piece has a spiritual, living quality. Robrish uses materials collected in her surroundings, composing with rusted barbed wire, disintegrating tin ceiling tiles, and ribbons of seed pods. The artist will give an artist talk on Friday, July 13 at 7 pm. Learn more about her work at http://alicerobrish.com.
The Miniature Works of Art exhibition at In A Frame gallery was sweet and light-hearted. Artwork didn’t get bigger than 2 x 3 inches, and a wide variety of mediums were selected, including enamel, ceramics, oil painting, encaustic, clay, and textile. The theme of nature dominated the 80+ works on view, with several stand-out textile pieces.
