Join James May Gallery for the August opening reception for their latest exhibit on Aug. 3, 5:30-8 pm. The exhibit runs through Sept. 3 and features paintings by Amy Soczka, mixed media by Tim Abel and ceramics by Justin Donofrio. The show coincides with the monthly art walk on Steele Street.
Soczka said of her work, “I am interested in creating work that is like a memory of a landscape or a garden that you dreamed about … My current series of large paintings attempts to surround the viewer with a wall of saturated florals that are familiar but imagined, an impossible arrangement, the result of my own meditations.”
Abel’s work, in his own words, “quietly confronts ideas of masculinity through my method of making: embroidery, sewing and quilting. I use traditional quilting patterns, or the quilting notion of using a repeated shape to create a sewn composition as my current guiding method.”
“Through the lens of functional pottery I focus on questions about our relationship with objects,” said Donofrio of his ceramic work.
James May Gallery is located at 213 Steele Street in Algoma.
