“Moon Glow” by artist Joan Drew is part a new exhibit to hang at Brandon Artists Guild. The new show called “Out on a Limb” will be on display until March 26.
Friday, March 4 at 5 p.m. — BRANDON — There is nothing that compares with the unique spirit and sculptural form of a tree. The members of the Brandon Artists Guild are proud to present “Out on a Limb,” reflecting the personal style and media of each artist. “Out on a Limb” opens with a reception on Friday, March 4, from 5 to 7 p.m.
“The moon was so bright, and there were many bands of varying shades of yellow all around it, glowing thru the trees,” said artist Joan Drew about her watercolor painting, “Moon Glow.”
Judith Reilly, known for her intricate stitched fine art, has created an optically illusionary piece called “Limbs” with “multi-colored threads sown in a tight, squiggly manner…when you step back, you see that what remains black are human figures pressed together and reaching out to form a tree, a tree created by ‘limbs,’” Reilly states.
Robin Kent, in creating her large large assemblage “Tree of Life” said, “I was trying to mimic what nature suggests, through trial and error.” It tells the story of a lumber jack who changed his mind when “after close inspection, saw its beauty and thought differently. Such is life.”
The show will hang through May 3. Brandon Artists Guild is located at 7 Center Street, Brandon. For more info, visit brandonartistsguild.org.
