‘Myth and Metaphor’ exhibit launches new season at Watson MacRae Gallery
Watson MacRae Gallery celebrates its first exhibit of the 2009-10 season called “Myth and Metaphor,” with an opening reception scheduled to take place on Thursday, Nov. 5 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
In this exhibit, three featured artists use their selected mediums to abstractly express ideas and feelings about music, freedom and home.
Hollis Jeffcoat, from New York and Sanibel, has created new abstract works that use nature as metaphor for her inner views. Lee County native Krista Johnson’s primitive-style paintings are spirited expressions full of color and mystery. Jim Krieger, from Montreal, Canada and Naples, bends, folds, paints and etches metal into abstract wall hangings and sculptures that reflect his literary turn of mind.
Gathered together, the artworks play off each other creating an atmosphere of bold beauty.
This exhibition will run from Nov. 5 through 29.
Watson MacRae Gallery is located at 2340 Periwinkle Way #B3 in The Village Shops on Sanibel. Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday, 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. For additional details, call 472-3386.
