Oils and Watercolors by Marie App and Stained Glass by Josephine A. Geiger
Dates: September 7 - October 24, 2014
A new exhibition at New Visions Gallery will explore the key roles of light and transparency in art media. Journeys in Transparency: Oils and Watercolors by Marie App and Stained Glass by Josephine A. Geiger will be on display from September 8 – October 24, 2014. An Opening Reception will be held Sunday, September 7 from 1:00 – 3:30 PM, featuring an artist meet and greet and complimentary refreshments. Both the exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.
Marie App has a Master of Art and a Master of Fine Art from University of Wisconsin-Madison and spent over 15 years as an art educator at the high school and college level. She recently opened her own art studio in Stevens Point, where she uses oils and watercolors as a means of exploring the beauty of nature and the world around us. “I am committed to the idea of continually changing and growing,” states App, “I don’t want to be painting the same thing five years from now, but something new that I can’t anticipate today.”
Josephine A. Geiger is a stained glass artist from Saint Paul, MN, whose work emphasizes the underlying architecture of a scene — the lines, details and movement. Using a palette comprised almost wholly of rectangles and squares, she pulls from her professional background in architecture to construct mosaic landscapes — something very different from traditional symbols of stained glass design. “It might seem that I have a calculated, mathematical approach to creating,” says Geiger of her work, “Not so. The ‘art’ part of the fusion is this: I have no patterns for my work. I have images and ideas, and instincts, and a lot of experience with glass.”
School and community group tours are available for this exhibit, made possible in part through a generous grant from the Marshfield Area Community Foundation. Interested parties should contact New Visions Gallery to schedule a date and time and to learn more about available stipends for transportation costs.
An opening reception will be held Sunday, September 7 from 1:00 – 3:30 pm at New Visions Gallery. Refreshments will be provided and visitors will have an opportunity to learn more about Marie App and Josephine A. Geiger. The event is free and open to the public.
Journeys in Transparency will be on exhibit September 8 – October 24, 2014.
