BARBARA ALLEN SOLO EXHIBITION
March 4 - March 26, 2016
Reception: March 4, 5pm - 7pm
The Gray Gallery is featuring sculptures and paintings by Barbara Allen this March. This exhibition marks the first solo show at The Gray Gallery for Barbara Allen who has a studio in Bloomery, WV. Barbara Allen's paintings and wood-fired ceramic sculptures are intuitive and precise, intuitive in her ability to let process influence the image, precise in her understanding of materials and techniques. Variations of pattern, form and surface evident in her work are both deliberate and accepted, raising considerations about imperfection and beauty. Formerly an art conservator, Ms. Allen has a profound appreciation for the subtleties and intricacies of the mediums she has chosen to work with.
