Current Show

Please join us at Vale Craft Gallery on Friday, September 6 from 5:00 to 9:00 pm for the opening reception of our show Color and Texture featuring fiber art by Boisali Biswas and ceramics by Randy O'Brien.  Using bold color and innovative textures, both Randy O'Brien and Boisali Biswas create distinctive work in their respective mediums.   The exhibition continues through November 3.  Randy O'Brien's ceramic vessels and wall pieces feature a vivid three-dimensional glaze surface inspired by the mineral formations, mudflats and lichens of southern Arizona.  It took over 15 years for the artist to develop this unique "crawl" glaze.     The fiber assemblages by Boisali Biswas include mixed media weavings incorporating strips of textured wallpaper painted by the artist, as well as a new installation of hanging pieces.  Originally from India, Boisali combines the rich colors of her cultural heritage with contemporary forms, techniques, and materials in her work.
