Riders of Ravenna by Robert Hunter

TAG/The Artists Gallery will showcase work by their associate members in February. Gillian Collins, Sandra Fritter, Christine Mayo, Donna Quesada, and Robert S Hunter offer the gallery’s visitors a wide variety of subjects and media.

Painter Gillian Collins will exhibit creations from her recent journeys. Look for a sampling of her new series, Gillian’s Travels.

Sandra Fritter will show a collection of her vibrant paintings.

Robert S Hunter’s contribution to the exhibit will be prints containing multiple images. Some of Hunter’s art is inspired by photographs by Eadweard Muybridge. Other prints consider the subjects of wisdom and harmony. All have been created using digital imaging techniques and computer software and have been printed using archival pigment inks on cotton rag paper.

Mixed-media artist Christine Mayo’s work centers on a fascination with color, composition, texture and movement.

“In my real world, I tend to see in shapes and forms,” she says. “I use photos of interesting scenes or objects as my reference or inspiration to create an abstract composition. Once a canvas is started, it is not long before the painting takes over and I just go where it wants me to go!

Donna Quesada will exhibit both paintings and ceramics. Surface treatments on certain ceramic pieces use botanical forms, many from trees local to the Frederick area. Also showing are Asian-influenced Raku pots. Firing them at high temperature and exposing them to smoke and fire give the works a metallic effect.

You can meet the artists and enjoy refreshments from 5 to 8 on February 3 during the opening reception.

The Associates opens on Friday, February 2. Gallery hours are noon to 8 on Fridays and Saturdays and noon to 4 on Sundays. As always, admission is free.
