Archway Gallery presents "Water and Wood: Opposites Attract" opening reception
With this new body of work, Cookie Wells “goes into the woods” with her colorful and evocative figures. This collaborative show with husband Tom Wells, a self-taught woodworker and furniture maker, has the Archway artist finding inspiration from the trees that surround her, leading to artistic interpretations of them as “figures” in nature.
The beautiful lines and interesting textures of Tom Wells’ furniture are as evocative as the figurative paintings of Cookie Wells, making this collaboration a perfect match. Each artist is passionate about their work and each is passionate about nature. Two visions, two elements, two passions come together in a new experience for both artists.
The exhibit will be on display September 2 through October 5.
