Ann E. Hale is currently at work on color-filled new paintings in a variety of sizes and media for her April Featured Artists show titled, "Cycles in the Universe." Ann is known in the Valley as primarily an artist who draws and paints realistically. Her lively abstract artwork is often in intimate sizes, and includes her popular fold-out "personal galleries." The work in this upcoming show exhibits a new approach for this 70-year old artist. Ann is the Market Gallery's co-president and a charter gallery member.
An example of Hale’s work is illustrated in the attached piece titled: “Millennium Square”.
Mother-daughter artists Barbara Norman Lashley and Kim Lashley Sutliff will be featured in a joint exhibit. Their show is titled "Book Ends". Lashley and Sutliff have collaborated by making sculptures and collages from discarded books. Some of the works are books which have been cut, torn, folded or have added collage elements to make unique wall pieces. Other works are collages using torn or cut pages from books or magazines.
Lashley graduated from Averett University with a B.A. in art. She also holds a M.A.L.S. from Hollins. Sutliff also graduated from Averett with a B.F.A. and also completed her M.A.L.S. at Hollins.
