Art events now and later

This Friday is Gallery U's Primary Red Exhibit from 6-9:00 PM. 


Another must see event is a documentary film. Please go to the movies and see Chasing Ice. James Balog, a photographer, headed to the Arctic on an assignment for National Geographic in order to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. It is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet and he makes his point extremely well. 


Looking ahead to January... The Delaware Art Museum in Newark, DE is having a wonderful event on  January 11, 2013. Click here for more details.




If you are surfing the web - I am also in an online exhibit called Natura Viva. Please visit the site- http://debraclaffey.blogspot.com/- the images are visually lush.  Look my for my drawing entitled "Burren." Debra Claffey, the curator of the show, wrote 

Biology is fractal. Leaf patterning and veining, tree formation, hives and shells all have a mathematical description to their form. It can be enormously intriguing to mimic, recreate, and in a sense, relive the form through line and color in a fractal way, using the organic growth of a wavering line and meandering color. 
Here are 39 artists who use botanical or biological content in their work. What you will find amazing and intriguing is the breadth of treatment of the content in these works. They run the gamut from lush, chaotic overabundance to spare minimal elegance and in every imaginable medium and material.
