Gwinnett County Parks & Recreation’s Pinckneyville Park Community Recreation Center is sponsoring a free exhibit of two-dimensional work of the Johns Creek Fine Art group titled “TAPROOTS” and three-dimensional work of David Gentry titled “Gone To Pot.”
Johns Creek Fine Art is a group of five women: Nancy Dusenberry, Jan Eubanks, Cathy Fowler, Robin Garrison and Kay Hibbard, brought together by their passion for art. Two elements that bring these women together are a zeal for painting and their belief that painting from life brings a certain and essential truth to the work. This unifying point of view excites each artist to paint on location or from life in the studio and finally to exhibit together.
David Gentry has a love for making pictures into three-dimensional works of art. Gentry loves the mesmerizing effect of throwing on the wheel, but thrives on the creative process of altering thrown pottery. His pottery style is eclectic and strongly informed by his early teachers including Stacey Hendley Elser, Barb Swanner, Renee Duffy and Regina Wolfe. He is most commonly known as the “Carver” in the studio because of his increasing use of relief carving in most of his work.
An opening reception will be held Thurs., Aug. 6 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. Both exhibits will be on display Aug. 5 through Oct. 27. Exhibit hours are Mon. – Thurs. 9 a.m. – 9 p.m., Fri. 9 a.m. – 6 p.m., and Sat. 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Admission is free.
Pinckneyville Park Community Recreation Center is located at 4650 Peachtree Industrial Boulevard in Norcross. For more information call 770-417-2200 or visit www.gwinnettparks.com.
