In September members of The Artery at 207 G Street in Davis step out of their comfort zone to present "Out of Our Element." This was such an exciting idea that more than twenty artists ventured into unchartered waters to experiment with new ideas as well as new mediums. For some this may be a turning point in their artistic life. A different direction could be too tantalizing to become a one time experiment.
Here is a sampling of artists and their new pieces. Chris Dewees explored solar etching, and a printing process that employed a mammal instead of a fish. Marie Brown made paper for a collage and created another piece using pastels. Linda Bird fired 59 small ceramic tiles, which she connected with hammered and fired copper for an impressive wall hanging. Thelma Weatherford produced a glass mosaic of tropical flowers. Paula Bellacera's monotypes reveal another side of this ceramic artist. Ann Wright has loved photography for many years and she displays some favorites.
