Micropolis “Meet the Artists” Reception 05:00 PM– 07:00 PM
Where: Micropolis Art Gallery, 30 North Main St., Gloversville 12078
Micropolis Cooperative will hold a “Meet the Artists” reception in its gallery on Friday, September 13 from 5-7pm. Eggshell and mixed media mosaic artist Linda Biggers will be the featured artist.
In her artist statement Biggers wrote, “As long as I can remember, art has been an important part of my life. As a child, I spent every spare minute drawing or painting. For years, I dabbled in photography, painting, sculpture and a huge variety of crafts and worked as a graphic designer for 18 years. In 1998, I discovered eggshell and mixed media mosaic. Mosaic became my medium of choice. With the use of glass, eggshell, natural stone and slate, I am able to create works with the color and intense drama that I enjoy. I love texture, brilliant colors and creating pieces that will evoke feelings and emotions to the viewer.”
Paintings, drawings, pastels, photographs, fiber art, mixed media, woodwork, glass, digital art, jewelry, pottery, woodland assemblages and fine art cards by Micropolis artists will also be on display.
The show, which is free and open to the public, runs through October at Micropolis, 30 N. Main St., Gloversville. The gallery is located inside Mohawk Harvest Cooperative Market and is open seven days a week. (MON-FRI / 8AM-7PM — SAT / 8AM-5PM — SUN / 9AM-4PM)
