In June, Gallery 9 will feature “Savage Garden: New Works by Judith Andre, Su Harvey, and Vonni Sparks”. “Savage Garden” borrows from E. B. White, “We should spend less time trying to outwit nature and more time respecting her seniority.” Judith Andre is a glass artist that counts among her accomplishments, the development of The Mission Arts Building, the creator of Gallery Nine’s beautiful entry garden, and the creation of unique, colorful, and playfully executed kilnformed glass. Ceramicist Su Harvey, owner of Prairie Mile Tile, most recently selected as a muralist for the Antelope Valley Project, has been creating work in the public and private sector for 35 years. Painter Vonni Sparks is well known for her magical, colorfully narrative paintings that spring from a strong theatrical sense. The artists dedicate this show to the persistence of Mother Nature and the recognition that she does nothing uselessly. The show will hang from June 1-26, 2011.
Friday, June 3 – 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.
