Natural Reflections Gallery Opening October 9, 2020

September 28, 2020 By Art Center Admin

With a focus on nature and the world around them, artists Terri Huro, of Mora, and Nick Earl, of Stillwater, will share their art throughout the month of October at Pine Center for the Arts.

Huro is a mixed media artist who has been creating art all her life. Using pencil, colored pencil, watercolor, acrylic, and gouache on paper or wood panels, Huro finds inspiration from nature.

Earl has been creating wheel thrown and hand-built pottery for 14 years. “My inspiration comes from historical pottery forms, functional use in the home and kitchen, and the beauty and variety found across the natural world,” Earl said.

“I have a strong interest in art history and I try to exhibit the strength and beauty I see in old pots in my own work,” Earl said. “Cooking is also of great interest to me and my work, being mostly functional, has a lot to do with the storage, preparation, and presentation of food.”

While Earl’s work places an emphasis on function, Huro focuses on the joy of nature and the process of creating art.

“I create art that makes me happy,” Huro said. “I hope others enjoy it as well.”

Find joy in Huro and Earl’s exhibit “Natural Reflections” which opens Friday, October 9 at the Pine Center for the Arts. A special ‘Art After Work’ reception will be held from 4-7 pm in the Gallery space at 265 5th Street SE. The public is invited for this free event to drop by for wine and an opportunity to meet the artists. The gallery will also be open 10 am-12 pm on Saturday, Oct. 10, Oct. 17 and Oct. 24; and 5-7 pm on Friday, Oct. 16 and Oct. 23.
