For the past few months, we’ve enjoyed having the impressive watercolor works of Martha Mobley, Deborah Kay Nees, and Nick Terry hanging on our Wilson Downtown Gallery walls. They will soon be removed to make way for our next featured artist: Rhoda Miller of Rhodarts. Rhoda is experienced in painting, mixed media, jewelry design, graphic arts, and custom work. Her presentation at Wilson Downtown Gallery in February and March will be focused on feathers.
Feathers far surpass furs or scales in terms of complexity and efficiency…Extremely light and flexible, yet strong enough to withstand the stress of flight, these unique and marvelously developed components of bird anatomy have enabled birds, above all other creatures on Earth, to conquer the open sky.
(S. David Scott & Casey McFarland, Bird Feathers)
This exhibit is a study of one of the smallest, yet strongest structures of our world. A representation of the intricacies of each living thing. A reminder that we can fly.
Remember to stop by the gallery during First Fridays on February 6 for a FREE artist’s reception and refreshments!
