REFLECTIONS  AND REFRACTIONS - works by Trudy Thompson

On display currently in our gallery.  Thompson writes, "I am drawn to rhythms and patterns found in nature: ripples of water, swirls of clouds, shapes of flower buds, feathered wings of birds. I create my finely marbled silk by a process referred to as hydro-printing. After creating a viscous solution which sits over night in a bath, I carefully position drops of different colored acrylic paints on to the “sized” surface. Concentric circles expand and contract. The final pattern results after the drops of paint have been manipulated with a stylus or comb. Then with the help of an assistant a large panel of habatoi silk is positioned over the bath and lowered to gently rest on the surface, then slowly removed before rinsing. The layered patterns for my pieces result from creating a second or third bath with a different surface design each time… over a period of days!"

ERUUF HISTORY CELEBRATION

The display, consisting of four large posters and other pictures and memorabilia, describes the history of ERUUF using graphics and photographs that depict ERUUF and its predecessor, the UU Fellowship of Durham and Chapel Hill. Because 2016 is the 50th anniversary of our congregation, the Eno River Gallery will pay homage to our heritage. Thanks to Ross McKinney, facilitator and Steve Criscenzo, ERUUF Art Galleries liaison, for curating this exhibit.

CONTEMPORARY SEWN TEXTILES - works by Alice Levinson

Currently on display in the foyer gallery. My artwork process is intuitive and spontaneous. I experiment freely with dye, pigments, and printing techniques to create cloth which is complex in texture and rich in visual interest. In each composition the cloth is layered and densely sewn.  Occasional bits of vintage cloth add visual and textural interest, as spices enhance a stew.  Stitching, by both machine and hand, is my primary construction medium.

SHALL WE DANCE? - drawings and paintings by Linda Passman 

Now in our gallery through February 18, 2016.

A collection of evocative dancing figures in oil and mixed media. Passman was a long-time ERUUFian who was responsible for fostering ERUUF's visual arts presence in the community.
