The Artist's Studio in the Foothills Gallery & Visual Art Center is proud to present A Show of Chairs... Imagine a gallery full of un-fathomable chairs, lining the walls, shelves, pedestals... even the ceilings are not off limits! Local artists have truly come out of the woodwork for this show. Some have invented new and exciting sculptural chairs, others have adorned and transformed chairs with forgotten identities... A Show of Chairs has inspired sculptors, painters and inventors to surprise the world with what a chair, in its wildest dreams can be!
The provocative nature of the chair has long inspired the artists of the world. Their legged - likeness to us, is perhaps what makes them irresistible! Get ready to grab a chair and take part in this exciting ergo-eccentric art event that's sure to inspire collectors of fine and fantastic art!
A Show of Chairs will include works, both sit-able, and not... as well as paintings, drawings, prints, and small sculptural chairs. A reception for the artists will be held on Friday, May 7th, from 5-8pm. The show will hang through June 12th... gallery hours are Monday - Friday 10am-5pm, Saturday 11am-4pm, and Sunday by appointment.
Local artists support ASIF art events...
If you've had the pleasure of attending one of ASIF's recent art openings, you may have encountered their display of lovely collectable handmade cups! These are created by local artists, and offered for sale to guests, to be filled with the complimentary wine or other beverage of the evening! Guests have loved the opportunity to support the center, and look forward to taking home a special memento for each of the gallery's exciting art events!
Also in the gallery this month... New Small Works in the Smallworks Hall! Smallworks Hall shows have become a permanent side kick to the center's main gallery shows. The Smallworks Hall shows loosely follow main gallery show themes.
And check out ASIF's new Fine Art Gift Gallery, featuring small handmade functional and decorative works of art... cards, prints, sculptural candle holders, ceramics, jewelry and more! The gift area will also feature a number of local painters and printmakers on an ongoing basis, offering original works and giclee prints.
