Fearrington artists enjoy one another's work

Several members of Artist Studios at Fearrington Village toured the studios of five fellow artists to get new insights on the creative process. The Studio Tour was organized by Roni Liberman, the groups  Salon Chair.

Ceramic artist John Makowski recalled his rich background in portraying concepts of ancient cultures in clay and mixed media wall hangings. He demonstrated his unique technique of applying dry pigments to low fire clay to produce vibrant and expressive art works.

Stephen Bodner showed the group several examples of exquisite wood furniture, based on classic designs. He displayed his state of the art wood working studio, and explained the complex steps in transforming pieces of wood into fine furniture.

Reynold Maher talked about his life as a set designer in New York City. He displayed several examples of his abstract expressionist acrylic paintings.

Vietta Maher explained her love of nature, and enjoyment of roaming around the rural Fearrington environment collecting natural "art supplies". Her studio space is a fairy land of found object assemblages.

Carol Owen reviewed her many years of creative life in Fearrington Village. She showed her nature-inspired paintings and unique mixed media "spirit houses".

Artist Studios at Fearrington Village will have an outdoor celebration of art: Art in the Village on October 9th at the Village Center. See:
