Join us in celebrating Amapola Gallery’s Featured Artists for October, Sara Carley and Carol Lutz. Their show, “A Symphony of Color and Line” includes Carley’s cut paper creations and Lutz’s fused glass.
Sara Carley is a musician to the core, and she applies her melodic mastery to the art of paper cuts. Her images include whimsical elephants, bears and forest sprites. Just in time for Halloween are her seductive spiders. And in keeping with Carley’s background, she creates a symphony of lyrical musicians, playing flute, oboe, clarinet, trumpet, French horn and more, including a pianist with a grand piano. She says, “Cut paper absorbs me” and her clever images will absorb you as well.
Where Sara Carley rejoices in line, Carol Lutz emphasizes color, cutting, fusing and slumping gloriously colored glass. She creates unusual lazy Susan’s, crosses, plates and other functional works, glass “paintings” and what she calls “stripes of glass” or “faceless totems” to ornament a wall. Works also include superb small tables designed in two pieces, with the glass top secured to the metal base with super-strong magnets. Carol enjoys the great variety of glass colors and types and the endless possibilities they present. We think you will, too.
Meet the artists and view their works at their First Friday reception on October 6 from 4 to 7 p.m. at Amapola artists’ co-op Gallery. On the Plaza in Old Town at 205 Romero, NW. The show runs through October and the gallery is open daily from 10 to 5. (505) 242-4311 https://www.amapola-gallery.com/
