The Hidden Lantern Gallery in Rosemary Beach is proud to host a new show, Where Color + Texture Collide. This exhibit will feature artists Lauren Carvalho and Donnelle Clark. This exhibit will be on display from November 7th, 2011 till December 10th, 2011.
About The Exhibit
Donnelle Clark uses colors and varying surfaces to play to optical and tactile senses making the texture almost touchable. Utilizing materials with different qualities, such as Japanese paper, tissue, sand, burlap, lace, and more Clark maps a natural landscape on her pieces. Her pieces oscillate between abstract and representation. The picture to the left, Turtle, is one of the pieces to be featured at the exhibit.
Lauren Carvalho, Gallery Director and Resident Artist, is well known for oceanic sculptures. She gathers her materials from the local landscape, including leaves, palm bark, and pine cones. The pieces she uses are selected for their textural qualities and natural color shifts, and how they come together to form tone, line, and texture. Carvalho’s work gives the materials a new purpose. You can see her Gold Blue Fish (above image) at the exhibit, as well as the piece to the right, Patterned Flight.
