Eye on Artist: Nancy Thorne Chambers
Join us for a talk by artist Nancy Thorne Chambers on influences that inspire her work, methods and materials. Reception with light food and drink will follow.
Nancy Thorne Chambers's exhibit entitled A Story Place is featured in the MESA Gallery through June 5, 2016.
A Story Place is an enchanting ceramic installation featuring thirty life-size animals and insects sitting intently in a forest, listening to a child reading a story that is curiously about them. A Story Place is a visual feast that speaks volumes about the simple but very complex idea of "relationship." Creating a sense of "story" within "visual relationships" is what inspires clay artist Nancy Thorne Chambers. Each sculpture is hand-built, fired, glazed, fired again then painted with layers of color to enhance depth to hair and fur. Every gesture, expression, clothing color and finish is carefully chosen both artistically and with relationship to their group setting.
