Art in Bloom Gallery
“Opening Reception” on Thursday, January 12th from 5-8pm
Art in Bloom Gallery presents two brand new exhibits to kick of the new year! Join us in the gallery on Thursday, January 12th from 5-8pm for a very special opening reception to celebrate the work of these artists! Enjoy conversations and refreshments during this event. These exhibits will be on view in the gallery until February 26, 2023, at our gallery in Mayfaire Town Center.
“Bold and Bright” is our newest exhibit with fresh new works by long-time gallery artists, Mark Gansor and Gale Smith. Mark is a landscape painter using impasto surfaces to capture fleeting moments caught in the light. His works are playful and full of color! Complimenting Mark’s paintings are the sculptural metal works by, mixed media artist, Gale Smith. Gale’s work in this exhibit is about the transformation of sheets of copper into complex assemblages that create a distinctive visual impact while allowing the intrinsic beauty of the metal to shine through. Vibrant colours dance across the copper pieces and create abstract geometrical shapes. These intricate works contain rich textures and reveal extraordinary manifestations of colour and formations.
“Monochrome Moments: A Photographic Glimpse into Nature” is a new exhibit by photographer, Tim Smith. Tim’s images, shown here in black/white, illustrate a keen interest in light and composition. His visual voice is often one of quiet reflection and introspection. He is skilled enough to give the viewer those same emotions. His talents have convinced local and regional photo editors as well as the movie industry to use his photographs on their magazine covers, TV shows and movies, often as light-hearted and beautiful scenes. ~Jerry Blow, AIAP, Raleigh, NC
