Archway Gallery presents 3 Dimensional Stretch opening reception
Artists Andre and Virginia Bally hope to awaken in viewers an appreciation for three-dimensional artwork through this current body of work. The desire is to promote the concept that three-dimensional art is more than just the craft and craftsmanship through which it was created and to elevate these works into the realm of art or, hopefully, even fine art. The Ballys explore not only various techniques and media but also the infinite possibilities and diversity presented throughout the course of artistic development.
For this show the artists are working with media and proportions that are outside of their comfort zone. In addition to producing work in their traditional media of clay, the Ballys have stretched themselves artistically by experimenting with new processes and materials.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through January 5, 2017.
