“Doors” Open at Charlene’s Gallery Ten

For more than 40 years mixed-media artist and professor, Jane Herrick has been opening doors into unexplored visual regions of human experience. Her themes deal with the mystery of our human presence using a variety of materials that include various kinds of fiber, paint, paper, hog casein, snakeskin, and other materials.

“I use materials to express visual dialogues, emotional relationships, and life experiences, such as tension, anxiety, and loneliness as well as feelings of self-assuredness and confidence,” Herrick explained.

Her latest show, entitled “Doors,” is now featured through October 14 at Charlene’s Gallery Ten in Gills Rock.

“These paintings and drawings of architecture bring to mind neglected and forgotten buildings and dwellings in which the occupant has since abandoned,” said Herrick. “Old walls, doors, and windows stand and retain all their archetypical symbolic imagery of neglect, yet keeping their simple beauty.”

The gallery, open daily from 10 am – 5 pm (closed Tuesdays), is located at 12625 Highway 42 in Gills Rock. GT Coffee complements the gallery, serving espresso drinks and Door County cherry pie by-the-slice daily from 8 am – 5 pm with free Wi-Fi.
