2011 Fall Focus Exhibitions at GRACE

November 19 – December 23, 2011
Reception and Gallery Talk: Saturday, November 19, 5 – 7pm

Constructing Haiku - Heidi Fowler
Constructing Haiku is an exhibition of finely crafted paintings and mixed media works by Reston-based artist, Heidi Fowler. Influenced by her study of Chinese and Japanese artwork, Fowler paints seemingly serene landscapes, juxtaposed with observations of the recent land transformations taking place in our area due to the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project.

Hidden Worlds - Sheep Jones and Novie Trump
Hidden Worlds is a collaborative exhibition of works by painter Sheep Jones, resident artist at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, VA, and sculptor Novie Trump, founder of Flux Studios in Mt. Rainier, MD. Based on their common interest in exploring issues related to the world of bees and other winged creatures, they examine nature’s mysteries by investigating honeycombs, nests, and roots.

Vehicles and Vessels - Millicent Young
Vehicles and Vessels features work by well known sculptor and resident of Charlottesville, VA, Millicent Young. The exhibition comprises six beautifully crafted, sensitive three-dimensional pieces that transport the viewer into a place beyond knowing. Young’s sculptures are derived from materials she finds on her farm, which she manipulates and removes from their original context in the natural world resulting in a hybrid piece that seems other worldly.
