Art Market Gallery: Works by Ed Lewis & Pam Salyer

Category: Exhibitions & visual art, Fine Crafts and Free event

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 (pamelas2art@gmail.com).

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 (easttnwoodturning@gmail.com).

The Emporium Center: Victoria Phillips: A Place Within

Category: Exhibitions & visual art and Free event

A reception will take place on Friday, March 6, from 5:00-9:00 PM as part of First Friday activities

A Place Within was created from a state of contemplation and exploration. It is an extension of the processes and ideas of previous works. In these paintings, I examine how each layer interacts with the next. There is a sense of sublime expression as I investigate the human condition. The frailties and hardships of humanity are reflected in the disruptive processes, as I reference the sublime spiritual aspects through the washes of pigments and the synergy found within the hues. Many of the paintings from this collection were created in Skopelos, Greece. The mountainous landscapes paired with the endless ocean views created an atmosphere of divine inspiration. The beauty and simplicity of the island are reflected in the mystical landscapes in this collection as the disruptive qualities allude to the universal human condition. Through exploring the transcendental qualities found in my processes and metaphorical connections, I aim to delineate a sense of hope while providing an environment that is conducive for a visceral experience.

Victoria Phillips graduated with a BA in Visual Arts in 2013 from Lee University in Cleveland, TN. She earned her MFA in Painting at Savannah College of Art and Design in 2019. She has been involved in numerous exhibitions throughout the U.S. as her private collectors continue to grow domestically and abroad. Phillips completed an artist in residency in Skopelos, Greece in 2019, giving her the opportunity to exhibit internationally. She resides in Atlanta, GA where she has a studio at Mutiny Artwrx. She is a part time Assistant Professor at Kennesaw State University and a full time Visual Arts Educator.
