[January 26, 2017]
- The Joe McCauley Gallery at Heartland Community
College will feature Steady as She Goes, works by Amy
Wolfe. The exhibit is on display now through Friday,
March 3. An artist reception takes place Thursday,
February 16 from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. at the gallery.
Found object and mixed media assemblages abound in Wolfe's
exhibit. Composed of man-made and natural objects with painted
and drawn elements, these works reflect her exploration of "the
nature of the everyday" found in her backyard, the bike trail
and the local park.
From gathering scrap wood, metal, bark and branches, to drawing
inked patterns and imagery, Wolfe finds meditative qualities in
her observation and process. She states, "In this ritual of
finding objects and finding my composition, of growth and decay
and of chance and intuition, I find balance for myself."
