“Art for Adult Children”
Susan Webb Tregay and Janet Leazenby create art as if no one’s watching, and both have always wanted to exhibit with someone who explores her brain with the same humor and freedom. Hendersonville’s Open Studio Tour, September 23 and 24th, has given them this opportunity.
These two artists found common ground when they first realized that they both work the way Jasper Johns, American Abstract Expressionist and Pop artist, implores all artists to create.
Then do something with it,
Then do something else with it.
Janet Leazenby takes a hunk of wedged clay and slings or sculpts the clay into stretched slabs. Then she alters these into animals, containers or even human heads for humorous soft sculptures.
On the other hand, Susan Webb Tregay plays with Jasper Johns’ edict in her mind. She takes a memory or an actual vintage item like a pencil sharpener or roller skate and builds an abstracted painting around it. Realism takes a backseat to her playful colors and gravity-defying interpretation of each scene.
Come and explore the nonsensical minds of these two artists. Then you can create ether a painting or sculpture as if “no one is watching” at Hendersonville’s Open Studio Tour, September 23 and 24, 2017. Studio # NH 3, North Hendersonville.
