Justin Rothshank Exhibit at Crimson Laurel Gallery
Please join the folks at Crimson Laurel Gallery on November 1st to celebrate work by Justin Rothshank.
Known for multi-layered functional and decorative work, Rothshank’s work possesses palpable energy and inspired contrasts. The firm grip of his loosely thrown forms play off delicate decals; pop culture figures idle next to exuberant natural imagery; playful “finger swipes” dance alongside decadent gold luster.
Justin combines the best of intuitive expression with measured, painstaking attention to detail and process. This show will feature wood and electric fired work, with plenty of tableware and a beautiful assortment of large jars and vases. The show will run from November 1st until December 5th.
The two featured exhibitions, "Humanity: Figurative sculptural work by Lisa Clague and David Robinson," and "Sculptural and functional work of Shadow May and Jerilyn Virden," will continue to run until December 5th.
Regular business hours for CLG are: Tuesday - Saturday, 10am-6pm and Sunday, 12–5pm. For more information, visit crimsonlaurelgallery.com.
“What I Know,” an exhibit of work by by Dana Moore runs through November 14th.
Mica, a cooperative gallery of fine craft, is located at 37 N.
Mitchell, in downtown Bakersville. Gallery hours are 10 am - 5:00 pm. Monday through Saturday. Sunday hours
