2300 Degrees of Icy Abandon – Reception
November 18, 2017 4:00 pm
The Arts in the Village Gallery announces the November Featured Artists Exhibit “2300 Degrees of Icy Abandon”, a show capturing the chilly emotion of shapes, light and motility. Featuring the glasswork of Aimee Johns and the fine art photography of Samantha S. Marshall, join us at the Gallery to experience this intriguing show.
Johns tackles her creative projects with a renegade style of creativity. She says of her newest icy collection, “It doesn’t bother me to ‘break it until I make it’. I’m still getting to know the glass and finding the compromise between its own struggle to be what it thinks it is versus what I want it to be. It’s the perfect kind of chemical romance.”
Marshall’s arresting digital images will adorn the feature walls. Marshall’s work in the show begin their life as hidden places many do not even know exist, and once captured on film, she brings to life a striking image that evokes emotion. Her pieces have a sense of imagery and staging that breathes life into her subjects, especially abandoned spaces throughout the country.
Meet Aimee, Samantha, and other gallery artists while enjoying an upscale beer and food tasting by Delirium Cafe of Leesburg, along with desserts by Red Velvet Cupcakery, and live music by Chris Hankins at this public reception on Saturday, November 18th, from 4 to 7 pm.
