Second Saturdays Art Opening @ Art on the Trax with Carrol Mallin

“American Icons” by Carrol Mallin

Art on the Trax will “American Icons” by Carrol Mallin during the month of January, with a Second Saturday Artist Reception on Saturday, January 13th from 4-6pm.

Mallin has come to painting late in life, during her retirement from careers in psychotherapy and the Episcopal ministry.
Color is what captures her most. She chooses to work in acrylics because of the vividness of their color. In floral and still life paintings she has especially enjoyed the many things acrylics can do with additives such as molding paste and gels.

In the last several years Mallin has been involved in paintings themed on social justice. In these, she intends to convey an understanding of the disadvantaged or discriminated against who sometimes seem alien or frightening. As Georgia O’Keefe said, “I found I could say things with color that I couldn’t say any other way – things I have no words for.”

Please join us for a Second Saturday Opening Reception December 9th. This reception is part of Crozet’s Second Saturday events and runs from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. We’ll be serving up The Art Box’s famous ice cream sundaes topped with fruit from local orchards.

Art on the Trax will present “Wearing Nature” by Sarah Tremaine during the month of December, with a Second Saturday Artist Reception on Saturday, December 9th from 4-6pm.

“Wearing Nature” is a show of hand made clothing and accessories made of wool, silk and gathered plant materials.  Garments and accessories create a forest of items available for personal adornment.  In her beautiful fiber work, Tremaine applies the techniques of wet felting, eco-printing and hand dyeing; and uses local plant materials to create eco-prints (botanical prints) and natural dyes on a variety of natural fibers.  Surface design is built in layers of abstract and discernable patterns, reflecting back on their material origins and creating endlessly unique textures, colors and patterns.  All of her work is inspired by the ever changing beauty of nature: Inspired by Nature, Made by Hand.

Second Saturdays Art Opening @ Art on the Trax with Nancy Campa

“Verdant Melody” by Nancy Campa

Art on the Trax will present “Verdant Melody” by Nancy Campa during the month of November, with a Second Saturday Artist Reception on Saturday, November 11th from 4-6pm.

From the artist: “My painting takes its inspiration from my surroundings. I am drawn to nature and its natural beauty—the trees, the lay of the land. The Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains is where we have our home.
I start my paintings from direct observation outdoors, looking at what is capturing my attention—the light, shapes, color and line will all play into my composition. From there, I begin to translate what I have selected into my own artistic expression.”
