SOUTH OF THE BORDER

04 Mar 2017 - 25 Mar 2017

Free Event

“South of the Border” in the Saville gallery from March 4-25, 2017, showcases the work of three West Virginia artists; woodworker Joshua Miller, ceramicist Audrey Taucher, and painter Robert Singleton. For over 25 years, Josh Miller has been a maker and designer of furniture, timber frame buildings, and sculpture. His studio-workshop is located in Mathias. The exhibition in the Saville features his sculptural pieces from his “Implement” series. Audrey Taucher began making wheel thrown pottery in 1999 and then in 2013 learned hand-building techniques which made her fall in love with clay all over again. Her pieces incorporate creative shapes and beautiful glazes. She also hails from Mathias. Robert Singleton is a well-known painter world-wide, who after a hiatus from public exhibitions has again taken up his brush and creates luminous cloud paintings which convey a sense of peace and reverence. Robert resides and works from a hilltop in Baker. Reception is March 11, 6-8pm
