The Arts In The Village Gallery is proud to announce its Featured Artist Exhibit “Coming up Spring”with works by oil painter Steven Myles and potter Amy Oliver. The exhibit is a celebration of nature and the renewal of life in Spring. Amy Oliver’s organic ceramic vessels are her way of honoring the earth from where her materials heed. Amy’s love for surface work and texture is transformed on her pieces in the form of carvings of trees, birds and other subjects from nature. Oil painter Steven Myles seeks to portray scenes from nature that evoke an emotional or spiritual response from the viewer. Steven’s depiction of nature and ambience is like a brief, magical encounter with that specific scene through his use of light and point of view.Steve will be painting and Amy will be demonstrating handbuilding and sculpting clay on Saturday, May 20 from 5 – 7 pm.

Information: The bold and vibrant compositions of contemporary sporting artist Andre Pater (Polish-American, b. 1953) are often compared to those of the great 20th-century British sporting artist Sir Alfred Munnings. Pater’s refinement in pastels in addition to the classic medium of oil solidifies his rightful place as an illustrious artist in the 21st century. Works from collections across the country will be represented in the retrospective exhibition, Andre Pater: A Matter of Light. “Go beyond the mere image, and the painting becomes a ‘matter of light,’ ” notes sporting art authority and National Sporting Library & Museum Board Member Lorian Peralta-Ramos of Pater’s work. The retrospective exhibition and accompanying catalog present an in-depth analysis of Pater’s mastery of the use of light and insightful understanding of animal anatomy and behavior.
The Arts In The Village Gallery is proud to announce its Featured Artist Exhibit for June: “Light: received, released, refracted, retained”. This show highlights works by copper artist Anne Jordan and photographer James Norman. Their works are a celebration of light and will be on display the entire month of June.
For this exhibit, Anne Jordan has created floral candlesticks, mirrors and fountains, each relating to light in its own way. She has carefully formed the hard copper into delicate looking roses, dogwood flowers and ivy vines. In addition, she has collaborated with lamp work artist Julie Bahun, to create unique candlesticks incorporating beautiful large glass beads.
Photographer James Norman has prepared a collection of prints of some of his favorite landscape images captured in remote locations in Alaska, Iceland and elsewhere. Although lighting is always an important consideration in every photograph, there are times when nature dramatically illuminates a landscape in a way the reveals hidden details or unexpected color.
During the reception on June 17th, from 6-8 pm, Anne will demonstrate some of her techniques, and James will explain some of the techniques he employs in his photography. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet the artists and see that work that goes behind creating the art.http://www.artsinthevillage.com
Opening Reception: Friday, June 2, 6-9pm
Exhibition Dates: June 2-July 30, 2017

Griffin House didn’t begin playing guitar and writing songs until he was 18. The athletically gifted House shocked his family by turning down a sports scholarship to focus on music and, after graduating, moved to Nashville, started doing solo gigs and, within months, was headlining and touring with the likes of John Mellencamp and the Cranberries. Attracting the attention of major labels, he signed with Vancouver label Nettwerk and released Lost and Found.
His intelligent, heart-felt lyrics and melodies have made such songs as “The Guy Who Says Goodbye to You Is Out of His Mind” and “Better Than Love” radio mainstays. House released his 8th album BALLS in 2013, garnering even more commercial and critical acclaim.
Last year House released SO ON AND SO FORTH – a collection of original tunes that are considered some of his best yet and sure to please both old and new fans.
On Friday, June 9, we’re staying up late to watch the Full Strawberry Moon rise, and we hope you’ll join us in the vineyard to see the Valley illuminated by moonlight! Plus, we’ll have live music from 7-10 PM!
