ALL MEMBERSHIP 2023
Annual membership exhibition.

IN THE GALLERY:
January 6 - February 25, 2023

RECEPTION:

Friday, January 6, 5:00 - 7:00 pm

During First Friday ArtWalk

All Membership is one of our biggest (and usually our longest) exhibits of the year.  All artists are current members, and we get to see on display the incredible works of art that our members have recently made.  Year after year, we are astonished at the talent that we see from our community, both from returning members and new ones.  There are awards and cash prizes, along with the Best of Show being awarded a solo exhibit alongside next years All Membership.  Always requiring a drumroll of anticipation, the awards and well-deserved Best of Show is announced at the reception.  Last years Best of Show winner, Kelly Schaub, is on display this month in our Kucera Gallery.  This years juror was John Dykema, architect with Levy Dykema Architects.

ABOUT KELLY

Collage artist Kelly Schaub started her love for mixed media collage art in Rockport, TX in 2015.  Prior to that, she spent over 25 years working in live theatre production & arts administration.  She even served as Production Stage Manager for Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion, touring the country with the weekly live radio show.  Kelly has exhibited and taught locally all over, and is an active member in many local galleries and groups.  Schaub is represented by Moon Over Water Gallery in Rockport.

Exhibit: WAXING POETIC

"The tag line for this exhibit really should be 'elevating the everyday' - from everyday papers transformed through collage to everyday objects altered by the addition of hot wax.  I feel a lyrical connection with my materials and my two favorite mediums. Found objects and vintage ephemera, all created to last for a relatively short time. Discarded or recycled - these items are not rubbish in the eyes of a collage artist.  The photos and handwritten letters and ticket stubs, the old LIFE magazines - they all have a story to tell."

Learn Kelly's unique techniques first-hand at her class here at the Art Center titled "Waxing Poetic: Creating Magic in Encaustic Collage" on February 10.  Visit EDUCATION tab above for details.  She will also be doing an Encaustic Demo during the Artisan Market on Wednesday, January 18th from 5 - 7pm.

An exhibit dedicated to as mentioned, the SMALL but MIGHTY.  Art of all sizes is wonderful, but lest we forget those that intrigue as well as they fit that small vacant corner on your wall that needing filling.  The artists that find their calling to the small or miniature, or those that need to break from the bigger challenge and create something with less surface area.  They may be small, but they pack a punch if only we take the time to appreciate them a much as those of larger size.  Come check out these pint sized pieces! 

MEMBERS GALLERY
