The work of sculptor and furniture-maker Nathan Hatch will be on display as part of Edgewood Orchard Galleries’ Exhibit IV. Hatch’s new series of “Rorschach cabinets” demonstrate how his artistic eye and diverse talent allow him to push the limits of furniture’s form and function.
Hatch is one of four artists featured in the new exhibit, which kicks off with an artist reception Sept. 3, 4-7 pm, and runs through Oct. 30. Each artist will give brief talks about her or his work at 5 pm.
The work of painter Rebecca Korth – distinctive and photorealistic oil paintings of birds, inspired by fond memories of watching birds with her mom – will be in the Courtyard Gallery. Korth’s vivid detail and uplifting subject matter have made her among Edgewood’s most sought-after painters in recent years.
More than 40 new works by oil painter George Shipperley will be in the gallery barn. The depth of color and texture that he has achieved with his oil pastel pieces have made him a longtime Edgewood favorite.
Wearable art pieces by jeweler Julie Shaw will be at the gallery for the duration of Exhibit IV. With a background as a painter and a fascination with stones and color, Shaw uses stones, metals and enamels as her new canvas.
