Fall Members' Juried Exhibition 2021

Andrea Canter & Cindy Fuerstenberg, 'Naturally Unexpected'
Lobby Gallery, both floors
This exhibit brings together two spirited mid-career artists who excel at working in textural layers. In work inspired by nature, Andrea Canter and Cindy Fuerstenberg each bring a fresh freedom from representation while maintaining the context of nature’s reality through their use of natural and upcycled materials. In this exhibit, the artists invite our community to examine and reflect on their own unique relationships with nature.
Cindy Fuerstenberg is a fiber and mixed media artist who finds inspiration in the heartbeat of the land and the inhabitants who came before and live to teach us. She uses organic processes to alter textiles and fibers to achieve her subject matter. Her goal is to share history, science, and endangered species concerns through her work.
Andrea Canter is a photographer and mixed media artist who finds inspiration in the interaction of surfaces and textures found in nature and seeks to reinterpret or reinvent reality. She uses photographic composites and an array of materials on canvas and wood panels to attain her personal, multi-layered compositions.
The exhibits are on view October 28 - November 27, 2021
Gayle Novick, Member Spotlight
digital and mixed media prints
I enjoyed drawing as far back as I can remember. My fourth-grade teacher was an artist who in the afternoons would have us draw birds and flowers from the Golden nature guides. I also loved horses and drew them. I took studio art and art history classes in college, continuing to draw and paint during the many years I worked in medical technology. I also worked for a few years in the graphics department of a corporation. I worked with fine point technical pens and began doing delicate cross hatch drawings. I also began painting with watercolor, figures and landscape, then into my particular style. I have recently expanded my painting techniques using acrylic, mixed media, and collage. I work in a process driven manner, starting with no predetermined subject, letting initial marks hopefully develop into a successful image.
OLIO COWORKING: 5-7pm
Tom Freund, Member Artist Spotlight
digital drawings, watercolors, photographs
Creating art is, for me, a spiritual experience, a reflection of my vision of the spirit and mystical energy of my subjects. When I work on my images, I feel the love and creative energy of my father, Lee Freund, who, after working 25 years as a commercial artist, retired at age 65 and continued to draw and paint until his death 31 years later. Although my dad was an artist in more traditional media, I like to think that he would have enjoyed trying some of the technology I utilize for my artwork. Using a WACOM Intuous graphic tablet and Corel Painter software, I am able to replicate a wide range of media (watercolor, oil, acrylic, pastel charcoal, pen pencil, etc.). For photography, my tools include Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and 7D DSLR cameras and, of course, Adobe Photoshop software. Digital artwork and photographic images are printed on canvas or acid-free fine art paper using archival pigmented inks.
Blank Canvas Student artworks will also be on display.
Olio CoWorking exhibitions are a collaboration between Hopkins Center for the Arts and Blank Canvas. Blank Canvas students aid in the exhibition installation as part of an internship program.
Your walk of Art Hopkins wouldn’t be complete without strolling by the many outdoor sculptures, free to enjoy 24/7. Artists selected for ArtStreet are on display for one year, while the city’s permanent collection is part of our landscape. Information at Hopkins ArtStreet.
