COME OUT and LISTEN to ROXANE HOLLOSI'S ARTIST TALK at 5:00 PM Saturday Evening, August 11th at the Tannery!!
The Tannery Row Artist Colony is All a Buzz with the installation and set up of the Roxane Hollosi Solo Show to open tomorrow evening - A Woman's Spirit: Internal and External Nature Explored is filled with works ranging from large scale textural works, works on paper, paintings and intimate small works. "These works are captivating and powerful, says Judy Isaak and Ginger Rouse, senior members of the Tannery Row Artist Colony; they really command the attention of the viewer. The works "invite" you inside, closer, to investigate further." The show coordinator, Gena Brodie Robbins headed up the search for the solo artist, and implemented the exhibition from the beginning, but had to have sudden surgery just before the show's initial installation. Thats when Judy Isaak, Ginger Rouse, Tonya Haswell and Bree Sauers stepped up to make sure Roxane could easily set up and install the show. It takes a village, so to speak, to put on any exhibition. It's a lot to plan and execute and it takes most of our members to make it happen.
Roxane's work was chosen from a huge pool of applicants. Her work stood out from the hundreds who applied for a Solo Exhibition at the Tannery. It's going to be exciting to see the work finally up in person, states Gena Brodie Robbins. I'm very thrilled to have such a dynamic, award winning contemporary artist exhibit in our gallery. It's also going to be very interesting to hear her talk in-depth about her artistic materials and process, and what really is at the root of her inspiration as an artist. I love that she is so versatile, and can work in so many different mediums in so many different ways. It is most certainly going to be an amazing show that allows viewers to not only view the work, but touch objects of nature that inspired Roxane to make many of the works in the solo show.
Many of Roxane Hollosi's work was inspired by a colony of bees who decided to take over her bird feeders in her back yard. Take a look at her BEEackyard Adventures here on Roxane's instagram to see more or view the video clips below.
