BLACK AND WHITE FLASK
Traver Gallery is pleased to announce From Here to Infinity by Seattle based artist Nancy Callan. Having firmly established herself as one of the preeminent contemporary artists working in glass sculpture, Nancy Callan's artistic voice has never been more resonant than in her forthcoming exhibition at Traver Gallery. In her new body of work, Callan celebrates and draws on her early experience as a graphic designer to bring pattern and color to the forefront. Her colorful blown forms become a beautiful canvas for the intricate overlapping, woven, organic, and playful cane and murrine designs she creates.
Growth Rings, a group exhibition featuring sculptural works in wood by: Ben Butler, Christine Lee, Malcom Martin & Gaynor Dowling, Michael Peterson, and Cordy Ryman. This exciting group exhibition highlights 6 artists' diverse approaches to contemporary wood sculpture. From the exotic looking Madrone Burls that Michael Peterson finds near his Lopez Island home to the quotidian industrial construction materials that Cordy Ryman sources from warehouse lots and hardware stores near his Brooklyn based studio, each of the artists included in this show find inspiration in the form, implied function, and mutability of a material that is readily available and totally familiar.
