“The Illuminated Pages of Ours” Opens at Eaton Gallery
“The Illuminated Pages of Ours” will be on display at Eaton Gallery April 1 through April 20, 2020
Eaton Gallery is exhibiting the 11 pieces in the front window, where the community can walk, bike, or drive by for a slow art viewing experience. The public is invited to try and match each contemporary illuminated manuscript with the artist who created it.
The exhibit “The Illuminated Pages of Ours” features contemporary narrative works by 11 local artists, each depicting an illuminated manuscript in their own style. This invitational show includes works by Mary Jo Adam, Angel Ambrose, Janean Baird, Jeannie Breitweiser, Doug DeLong/Veronica Strotzka, Herb Eaton, Joann Goetzinger, Rick Harney, Jane Osborn, Melanie Shellito, and Brian Simpson/Rachel Cofer. Each artist’s piece references the style and history of illuminated manuscripts, using chosen or handcrafted typography and imagery.
The opening was originally scheduled as part of the April First Friday downtown, but in light of social distancing has shifted to be part of Slow Art Day, an annual worldwide event.
