Art in Bloom Gallery announces an opening reception for “ExperiMetal: An Artist’s Journey by Gale Smith” on Friday, October 6th, 6-8 pm at 210 Princess Street. The art exhibit continues through Saturday, October 28th.  Ten percent of all sales during the art exhibit will be donated to DREAMS of Wilmington (Youth Development through Arts Education).

Artist Gale Smith uses various techniques and materials to transform metal into contemporary art forms.  The art exhibit features woven and painted copper wall hangings and a woven and painted copper dress worn by the artist. The copper dress is a collaboration between Gale Smith and designer, Alice Blake Powell.

Gale Smith explores the relationship between painting, weaving and sculpting.  She uses various materials and creates colorful, textured wall hangings that take on radically new tapestries and shapes. The versatility of copper and its’ uniqueness allows the artist to experiment with different creative processes.
