An exhibit of photographs by Mio Akashi and ceramics by Ann Mallory will open with a reception on Saturday Sept. 12 from 2-4pm.
Mio Akashi, whose work has been described as “riveting” and “mystical” has shown her work in several venues throughout Connecticut and New York. Inspired by the ancient sacred trees of Japan, she has used her camera to translate into compelling art the images of old, weathered trees with their twisted trunks and tangled branches.
Ann Mallory, creator of breathtakingly beautiful ceramics, has shown her work throughout the country and around the world. She will exhibiting pieces from several series including “Contemplation Vessels,” ancient shapes of functional movement, “Bulbs,” inspired by the beautiful shapes of fall bulbs, “Bundles,” visual metaphors for the obligations and responsibilities we all carry, and “Memory Stones,” witnesses and reminders to keep our lives on higher ground.
