Arts Commission of Greater Toledo Announces
Fisher, Gaynier, and Lockwood-Lass Exhibit
The Fisher, Gaynier, and Lockwood-Lass Exhibition will be on display October 22 thru November 23, 2007. The public is invited to join us for the opening reception on Friday, October 26 from 6-8 pm.
This exhibition pairs the uniquely intricate works of 3 local artists. Craig V. Fisher’s prints are not only intricate in their handling of the etching medium, but also in their woven meanings that draw from the past and scrutinize the present. The prints, embedded with metaphor and mood, draw the viewer to explore landscapes and scenery that are a hybrid of the real and imagined. Mary Gaynier’s intricately cut paper snowflakes go far beyond the craft project you may have created as a child. From a distance the works have a beautiful, symmetrical rhythm. Upon closer inspection, the viewer’s amusement grows as he or she discovers a variety of imagery and themes including excerpts from pop-culture and everyday life. Margaret Lockwood-Lass offers a glimpse into the intricacies of the human condition. Inspired by delicate objects and heirlooms the artist has inherited from her family and earnestly saved, this series traces a line of personal stories, sharing unique details of common human experiences.
The Parkwood Gallery is open Monday thru Friday 8:30 am – 4:30pm and is located at 1838 Parkwood Avenue Suite 120 off of Monroe Street in Downtown Toledo.
The Arts Commission of Greater Toledo is the longest standing arts commission in the state of Ohio that develops and promotes the arts in the community, serving Fulton, Lucas and Wood counties since 1959.
