Interlink by Helene Bess

Practical. Complicated. Beautiful. Mysterious.

Eleven artists exploring various mediums, including cast glass, carved wood, wire, metal, ceramics, and paper.  The selected artists explore six sides of a practical idea. Unfolding, storing.  A gift of beauty, symbolic, containing, concealing, treasures, secrets, demons. What is inside?  What will you experience when the lid comes off?

Exhibiting artists: Richard Chill Cott, Virginia Spalter, Helene Bess, Wesley Allen, Julie Dye, Samantha Churchill, Susan Bach, Sue Monde, Mark Noll, James Oleson and Steve Cinnamon.

Don’t miss the 3 string cigar box guitars which will be featured in a musical event during the exhibition.
