Of Earth & Sky – Kay Lerner, Pattie Lipman and John Huffaker

June 20 @ 11:00 am - June 30 @ 4:00 pm

Kay Lerner’s inspiration for her art comes from her everyday world such as the creatures and objects she finds in her environment – including animals, people and scenic views of the natural world. She has a way of noticing quirky details thereby adding an element of humor – from the expressions on faces of beings to the juxtaposition of their forms and bodies.

Pattie Lipman’s art derives from her teaching of drawing and printmaking, and her love of art history – first by looking at prints and paintings, and then through the making of both. Working in oils, on still-life, portraits, and landscape, she focuses on color first and then engages in private dialogue with artists from the history of art.

John Huffaker shows selections from two recent series – horses and angels – that are modeled directly in wax and then cast in bronze. Working at this size in wax allows him to pick up and handle the pieces as he models them. This approach often results in a series of sculptures on a common motif. One work can lead to another although the path may not be linear – “my hands have wisdom that my head does not, and I enjoy surprising myself.”
