B.Z. Reily's show, "Full Circle", coming to Hope and Feather's gallery in April, includes found-object wall sculptures and prints. They are constructed out of weathered and worn items, antique wood, metal scraps, and pieces from the natural world.
She has shown her work in galleries and museums in Pennsylvania and all over New England.
Hope and Feathers Framing is delighted to be selling Aaron Becker's amazing wordless book Journey here in the shop. Along with signed copies of the book we also have these three limited edition giclees. We also have fantastic little mini giclees. If you are local or want to get one of Aaron's pieces framed, come into the store or give us a call. If you just want an unframed print shipped to you, you can do so from Aaron's website here.
Artist William Rathbun’s paintings will be on display beginning Wednesday March 5th. Rathbun has been creating work for over 40 years and has shown his work exclusively in museums in galleries in Massachusetts, most notably the deCordova Museum. Rathbun is continuously experimenting with a variety of styles and mediums that include paintings, sculpture, and neon.
Recently, a visit by the Hope & Feathers staff to Bill’s studio resulted in the resurfacing of a series of watercolors. Captivated by the vibrant and playful nature of these works we set about planning a show. Rathbun's exploration of neon sculpture is an obvious influence on the creation of this series of paintings. To experience these watercolors is to witness an evolution of "electric" from sculpture to paint and paper.
There will be an opening during the Amherst Art Walk on Thursday, February 6th from 5-8pm, and an artist reception on Saturday, February 8th from 4-7pm.
