Join Fairbanks Arts in the Bear Gallery for our December exhibitions: Water Transformation by Crystal Rose Cudworth and Back porch sightings: pottery from the boreal forest by Teresa Shannon.
Crystal Rose Cudworth’s oil painting practice is engaged with the history of Impressionism by way of working “en plein air,” or in the open air. Positive and negative spaces in the paintings continually shift while recording the rhythms of sunlight, wind direction, and season. When a piece is resolved, it is a recording of both her surroundings and internal journey.
Back porch sightings: pottery from the boreal forest features sculptural pots that are inspired by the small, often overlooked, wildlife that live in backyards around Fairbanks. The exhibition includes sculptural pottery that commemorates the lives of the squirrels, shrews, chickadees, and other tiny creatures of the boreal forest.
These exhibitions are on view in the Bear Gallery from December 3–23, 2021. The gallery will be open from 12–7 pm on Friday, December 3 for the opening day. For the rest of the month, join us in the gallery Monday–Saturday, 12–6 pm. Visitors are required to wear a mask and practice social distancing and the gallery currently has a 15-guest limit in place.
