Coming Up Spring

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. Amy will be demonstrating handbuilding and sculpting clay on Saturday, May 20 from 5 - 7 pm. Arts in the Village Gallery, 1601 Village Market Blvd., Suite 116, Leesburg, VA, 20175.
