In May, JarrettThor Fine Arts is hosting the 31st Anniversary Exhibit of “Exposure Unlimited”, a group of seven experienced artists from Fredericksburg. Their works include a wide variety of media and subject-matter including cold wax and oil, wood sculpture, primitive icons and impossible geometry. The Opening Reception and Meet the Artists will be Friday, May 12 from 6-9PM as part of the Second Friday Art Walk in Colonial Beach. The works will be shown until June 4. The public is invited free-of-charge.
The seven artists are Bob Worthy, Cathy Herndon, John Nichols Jr., Jimmy Butler, Joan Limbrick, David Lovegrove, and Retta Robbins. Nichols, Herndon and Worthy are founding members in 1986 of what was originally a co-op in Silversmith House which evolved into an association to place exhibits for the group. Worthy is currently using cold wax and oil to portray the early mornings of Atlantic beaches. Herndon’s work is driven by a serious interest in primitive cultures and folk art. Her recent works are mixed media often with re-used neon. Limbrick provides a spectacular fish. Lovegrove is assembling geometric complexity into both serious statements and playful structures. Be prepared to look carefully!
On site at JarrettThor will also be the Tarver Harris Design Studio with fine scarves and interesting abstract paintings. There will be works of the gallery’s permanent artists plus decorative minerals, unique jewelry and wooden bowls. JarrettThor is located at 100 Taylor St. Hours are Thursday-Sunday 10AM-5PM and other times by appointment (804-224-7200 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
