Art Market Gallery: Works by Ed Lewis & Pam Salyer
First Friday Reception: March 6, 5:30 – 9 p.m.
Pam Salyer, Mixed Media
The infinite variances in color, texture and pattern of the natural world fascinate me, and I attempt to interpret and convey the relationship between these elements through mixed media collage. My latest series of work focuses on what we see when we look into flowing rivers and rocky streams, probing beneath the surface, freezing a moment in time. I build each collage with acrylic paint, paper and acrylic gels, layer by layer, creating new ways to consider the textures and colors of the natural world around us. I enjoy experimenting with different techniques and materials, always striving to push the boundaries of my art practice. Pamela is a Knoxville-based mixed media artist (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Ed Lewis, Segmented Wood Turning
Ed Lewis mainly focuses on laminated and segmented wood turning. He states, “In combining different wood this way, the endless possibilities of design and color are achieved. I seldom use any dyes or stains, relying on the natural wood colors and grain to show through. I enjoy building of the complex blanks, as much as the turning of the final shape. Though my work is designed to be decorative, most of which can be used functionally.” Ed is a woodturner, located in Seymour, TN (email@example.com).
