2+2 Transformation/Tradition

May “First Friday” – Friday, May 2, 2014, 5pm – 9pm.
Seasons on St. Croix Gallery invites you to our FIRST FRIDAY CELEBRATION!

Featuring Jude Ryan Reiling (painter) and Tressa Sularz (basket weaver)

Featuring Kirk Freeman (potter) and Christy Wetzig (potter) it is wonderful to kick off the artOPENer weekend with two great shows at seasons.

Transformation is a collaboration between two friends who have experienced transformation in their lives and therefore in their art. Jude, who most of us know as a ceramic artist, is showing paintings that relate to the woven nature of Tressa’s beautiful, sculptural baskets. this sophisticated show will nurture the creative, the bold, the serene and the colorful in all of us.

Tradition will speak to the world of functional pottery created through timeless traditions. it will also show the relationship between teacher and student … a tradition of mentoring and passing knowledge and skill on to others. Kirk’s well-crafted porcelain pieces are of classic form and technique, whereas Christy brings tradition to her work in a more spontaneous and whimsical manner.

Come visit with the artists, enjoy two lovely artful experiences, have some nibbles and cheer with a background of upbeat music.

The shows will remain up throughout the artOPENer weekend – May 3rd and 4th (visit artopener.com for more information) – as well as the entire month of May.
