Begin your Memorial Day Weekend with some great art!
Majestic Galleries: Opening Night: The Art of Conflict, Jon Jager and Larry R. Burfield. This show will highlight artwork that was done during and about the Vietnam War - illustrations from psychological operations used in the war zone (leaflets/posters) and photographs of war protests that took place on the streets of America. These works will show contrasts, not only in artistic mediums, but also of their goals - to fight a war and to end a war. Much of this work is of the type that has rarely been seen or understood by most people. The works are not so much about art for arts sake but about artistry used for particular purposes during a trying time in American history. We are excited to reveal these insights and contrasts, as art to the public.
Majestic Front Gallery: Opening Night: Art created by and for families who have experienced pregnancy and/or infant loss. Some of the works were created as the loss was occurring and others were created in the days, weeks, months and years afterward as a way to process feelings of grief. The goal of the show is to bring awareness to pregnancy and infant loss and continue the conversation about loss.
Majestic Back Gallery: Opening Night: Ohio University printmaking graduate student, Sadie Meade will showcase recent work.
Starbrick Cooperative Gallery: Opening Night: Potters x 2. Ceramic artists Sue Hazen and Sue Roth have joined forces to explore each others’ unique talents and techniques. This collaborative body of work celebrates their abiding love of pottery and their own long friendship.
Paper Circle: Continuing: A Synthesis of Hyacinths and Biscuits: Mixed Media Collage, a solo exhibition featuring works by Kate Fetterolf, an Athens, OH artist that has recently relocated from California. A Synthesis of Hyacinths and Biscuits is a collection of abstract paper collages that work together to create an interesting, off-beat synthesis. Kate’s work cobbles together small, torn pieces of hand-painted paper—pieces that might ordinarily get overlooked or swept into the trash, likely have had different origins, and are frequently made from different media. She works at the intersection of randomness and deliberation to create works that she refers to as small prayers or meditations.
Nelsonville Emporium will be open for a quick bite to eat or a local art treat – featuring deli sides, soup sandwiches and more. Grab a bite to eat this Final Fridays!
