January 7 – February 6, 2016
This exhibition features recent work by painter Rebecca Tolle and ceramicist Elizabeth Pechacek.
Reception: Friday, January 15th, 7-9 pm
Northfield Arts Guild
304 Division Street, Northfield, MN
Rebecca Tolle describes her paintings as “artwork with a narrative voice – impressionistically influenced landscapes which surprise the conscientious and observant viewer with the message of the subject matter.”
Recent series of paintings have the theme — “Trailings Left Behind” which subtlety raises the critical consciousness. There is a story being told in each of her paintings which inspires one to take a second look.
Elizabeth Pechacek will show a selection of large-scale pottery and sculpture using very contrasting materials including porcelain, groggy rich stoneware and a pure black clay. She is interested in the dialogue between these earth materials and the images of excavation and nature in strife.
