Featured Artists October Play With Time and Texture

Amapola Gallery’s Featured Artists for October are Phil Green and Annette Galvano, with the theme “Time and Texture.”

Time is what Phil had on his hands when he retired some fifteen years ago. He combined the two –time and hands! — and began creating Raku clocks. Raku’s unpredictable and brilliant colors combine with Phil’s clever designs to result in unique time pieces.

Phil’s designs include hot air balloons, sunflowers, fish, bird houses and more, and small table clocks as well as splendid wall clocks.

Variety is also a pleasing feature of Annette Galvano’s fiber art.

Annette works mainly with knitted, wet and needle felt, and incorporates lace, beads and other charming and clever accents into hats, purses, scarves, table runners, even framed pieces for the wall. Her color palette is vivid and her work (like Phil’s clocks!) most unusual.

This felted bag is the work of Annette Galvano, one of two featured artists October at Amapola Gallery Albuquerque.

Annette’s designs include birds, butterflies, cats and dogs, flowers, horses … Think you can draw? Try doing it with a wisp of wool, directly on a wears-like-iron piece of felted wool, applied by pounding with needles. Confused? Come see!

With an artists’ reception October 7 from 4-7, and artwork on display daily from 10-5, you’ll have lots of time to enjoy the textures of Phil Green’s clocks and Annette Galvano’s fiber art.

I like to play with words almost as much as I love playing with paint, stone, ink … Lucky me to have a blog outlet with my gallery since 1980, Amapola artists’ co-op Gallery. -Kristin Parrott, carver, painter and acorn stuffer
