September 1, 2015 10:00 am - 9:00 pm
Arts in the Village Gallery, 1601 Village Market Blvd, Suite 116, Leesburg, VA 20175.
In September, Arts in the Village Gallery presents A Natural Flair, a Featured Artist Exhibit presenting the hand-formed copper work of Anne Jordan and the luminous watercolor paintings of Wendy Schobert. This unique exhibit takes on a life of it’s own with — A Natural Flair.
Time seems to stand still for Anne Jordan as she explores copper, fabricating sculptures, fountains, garden ornaments, bowls, and trays. Copper is at once hard yet malleable, rigid yet fluid, and mysterious. Anne begins with an idea, but the copper makes demands, resists, and reveals new paths as she interacts with it. Inviting and functional, Anne’s copper pieces draw you in, last forever, and improve with age and use.
“As a former microbiologist, my eyes have been trained to observe details, patterns, and differences . . . ,” says Wendy Schobert in regard to her paintings. Close-up views of flora and fauna are Wendy’s speciality. Contrasting brilliantly sunlit surfaces with cool shadows, a wide range of birds, insects, flowers and animals unfold in Wendy’s paintings. “Watercolor enhances my experience of the natural world.”
Meet Anne, Wendy, and other gallery artists, enjoy light fare and wine at the Gallery Reception on Saturday, September 19th from 5-8 pm.
