Wired Gallery – Collectors Curate Art Show
Wired Gallery in High Falls is hosting a novel art show called “Collectors Curate,” opening reception Saturday, November 28 at 5 pm. Four collector teams will discuss works by artists of their choice including Jan Muller, Anna West, and Tim Rowan. Collectors Christy and Jamie McDougall, for instance, explain why they cherish the work of Tim Rowan, a ceramics artist based in Stone Ridge: “We love Tim Rowan’s work because it takes the delicate ceramic medium and gives it mass and strength; it makes you believe that it’s carved stone, or even metal. We love that his pieces make you look twice, compelling you to feel the texture and try to get to know them while you become absorbed in all the tiny details that the clay delivers.” The show remains on view through February 7, 2016.
