May 17th “Form and Color” Artists’ Reception
Come to the gallery on Friday May 17th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. to see new works by sculptor David Green and oil pastel artist Nancy Rehm. The exhibit, entitled “Form and Color,” showcases these two artists, and all of the pieces will be for sale. Enjoy wine and cheese while perusing the many creative offerings in the gallery.
Born in Detroit, David Green was introduced to art by his grandmother, a talented painter. After college, he apprenticed himself to local artists who helped him develop his skills. He utilized the masters as his instructors by compiling a library so he could study their photographs, analyze their techniques, and apply those techniques to his body of work. Each unique piece is charged with a sense of life and purpose, expressed in wood, stone, and bronze. Recent works have been in imported marbles and alabaster and can be found in many private and select public collections in Europe and the U.S.
Originally from Gettysburg, Nancy studied art at The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, at Tufts University, where she was a drama major specializing in theatrical design. She is a member of the Adams County Arts Council and has had work displayed in its juried shows. Oil pastel is her chosen medium. She describes her work as ‘sophisticated finger-painting.’ She draws with the pastels and uses her fingers to blend them on the paper, preferring the tactile sensation of working directly with the materials rather than using a brush. Rehm’s project is to make ordinary scenes and objects look magical, mysterious, and inviting, to entice the viewer into spending time in the little world inside the frame.
