Art & Light Gallery is proud to announce “Life is A Spiral”, a solo exhibition of ceramic sculptures and monotypes by the celebrated South Carolina artist and educator, Alice Ballard, launching on the Art & Light Gallery website at www.artandlightgallery.com/exhibitions and in the Art & Light Annex (1211 Pendleton St.) on Friday, September 1 from 6:00 - 8:00 PM.
Alice Ballard considers herself a nature based artist who works in multiple mediums but primarily in clay. Her message is one of environmental awareness and the interconnectedness of all things. Ballard states, “As an artist I feel I have been called to express myself visually and to share what I discover. I do this by creating work that is a reflection of my close observation and connection with our natural environment. Our universal world in which differing life forms share so many similar qualities has become a particular focus for me as it is a continuing reminder of the interconnectedness of us all and of all things.” Each of Ballard’s creations, whether it be a sketch, a painting or a clay sculpture, is highly personal and individualized. Countless hours spent contemplating a subject leads to a special kind of connection with that object. The result is a Zen-like connection not unlike a meditation.
In addition to the opening reception on Friday, September 1 from 6:00 - 8:00pm, a small meet and greet with Alice is planned for Saturday, September 23 at the Art & Light Annex from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM. Spaces for the meet and greet are limited so please be sure to RSVP to [email protected] if you plan to attend.
