Fire, Earth, Water, Air, Arlington Artists Alliance juried member show in the Focus Gallery July 29 – August 30, Juried by Nancy Pane Fortwengler.
Arlington Artists Alliance members were invited to submit works depicting the theme “Fire Earth Water Air.” These four elements of western culture were believed to be essential to life. The concept of the four elements can be found in many ancient religions, as well as in astrology. Arlington Artists Alliance members working in all media were invited to submit works that convey the richness and aesthetic beauty conveyed by nature through the elements.
Featured artist for August is Anya Getter, whose whimsical collage/mixed media pieces are inspired by quotes, animals and exotic places. Getter incorporates many found objects and mosaic into her work, resulting in varied textures and surfaces.
