Art of Fire: Creativity sparked in Brandon
BRANDON — As the weather starts to cool, the Brandon Artists Guild is getting all fired up. This fall, the gallery continues its Earth-themed 20th anniversary celebration with a new exhibit, “The Art of Fire.” The show will run from Aug. 30 through Nov. 5. The public is invited to the free opening reception Friday, Aug. 30, from 5-7 p.m.
The all-member, all-media show features pieces linked by the common theme of fire, and includes ceramics, collage, watercolor, oil, photography, glass and more.
“Some of these pieces, in glass, ceramics, and metalwork, are born in fire,” said watercolorist Joan Drew, “but regardless of our medium we’re all excited about picking up the thematic torch and running with it.”
“The Art of Fire” is the fourth and final exhibit in a series of themed shows honoring the planet. This 20th-anniversary year for the BAG is also the Chinese Year of the Pig, which recognizes nature’s elements, Earth, Wood, Water and Fire.
The Brandon Artists Guild is an artist-run gallery with approximately 40 exhibiting artists and additional supporting members, located at 7 Center Street in Brandon. BAG is open Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. For more information call (802) 247-4956 or visit BrandonArtistsGuild.org.
