Brandon Artist Guild opens ‘The Art of Wood’
BRANDON — The Brandon Artists Guild (The BAG) continues its 20th anniversary celebration with a new exhibit, “The Art of Wood.” The series will run from May 3 through June 25. The public is invited to the free opening reception Friday, May 3, from 5-7 p.m.
The show features pieces from the BAG’s exhibiting members, who work in diverse media including paint, fiber, glass, ceramics, collage – and wood.
“Though the theme is wood, the exhibit will feature works and interpretations across all media,” explained Stacey Stanhope, a potter and BAG board member. “Wood is just the sliver of an idea; each artist will branch off depending on how inspiration strikes. Wooden it be great to see what they come up with?”
The exhibit is the second in a series of four themed shows honoring our planet. This 20th-anniversary year for the BAG is also the Chinese Year of the Pig, which recognizes nature’s elements, Earth, Wood, Water and Fire. The BAG is devoting four exhibits to these elements.
In addition to Art of Wood in May and June, two others will follow: “Art of Water” — June 28 through Aug. 27, and “Art of Fire” — Aug. 30 through Oct. 29.
The BAG, at 7 Center Street in Brandon, is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Open seven days a week starting May 1. For more info call (802) 247-4956.
