A\Work Gallery announces its upcoming exhibition of paintings and assemblages by Maryland-based artist Courtney Miller Bellairs, running October 15 through January 7. The opening reception with the artist will be Saturday, October 15, from 6-8pm. Ms Miller Bellairs’ new work explores ideas and their expression through various materials and forms; works range from hand crafted conceptual sketches and process pieces, to larger works that remain intimate and human in scale.

Trained as an architect and artist, Ms. Miller Bellairs’ work explores space, scale, structure and relationships between art and architecture. Through oil and watercolor painting, collage, and most recently assemblage, Ms. Miller Bellairs’ work explores simple objects, cropped and composed to reveal interesting characteristics about light, spatial quality, and the relationships between object and material. Through these images, her work finds the beauty in everyday life.
