The annual “Black and White” show at CRAFT Gallery, 12 Elm Street in Rockland, limits the show’s palette to black and white in order to focus on form, texture, design and proportion. CRAFT will be open during the First Friday Art Walk during the evening on September 7. Emerging artist Meghan Clark will sing country music in the courtyard. In the “Black and White” show, Portland artist Marjorie Moore is exhibiting drawings from her “Drought, Fire and Ash” series, portraying the transformation of landscapes caused by wildfires. Using mixed media and traditional craft materials to explore working in black and white, other artists in the show include Autumn Cipala, Morris Dorenfeld, Sara Hotchkiss, Lissa Hunter, David Jacobson, Daphne Taylor, Suzi Van Wye and Dudley Zopp. The show continues through September. CRAFT is partnering with Eco-Art Ventures to offer exclusive visits in October to CRAFT Gallery artists’ studios to observe them at work and engage in conversation regarding their craft. The full-day experience includes visits at three different studios on each of four Tuesdays in October. The groups will be small, traveling together in a van on country roads at the height of the autumn colors. Call Lolly Mitchell at 593-8688 for details and registration, or stop by CRAFT Gallery for a full schedule.
