Body and Soul

The Duncan McClellan Gallery proudly presents “Body and Soul” with Alexis Silk, Deanna Clayton and Richard Logan!

At 5pm on Saturday, April 12th, the gallery doors will open to reveal amazing glass sculptures and photography depicting the human body from the perspectives of three very different artists. From abstract and powerful to dynamic and contemporary, each of these pieces will provide depth, beauty and amazement for all our guests to witness.

Tonight will also be the last glass blowing demo until October 2014 (due to warm weather).  Visit us to watch Alexis Silk transform glass into gorgeous figures of the human body. 

You won’t want to miss this amazing exhibit! While you browse, enjoy an adult beverage, soda or water for a donation from our custom bars (All donations benefit the DMG School Project).

About the Artists

The work of Alexis Silk is timeless. Working in cast bronze, hot sculpted blown glass and steel she explores interrelationships of humanity, culture and industry. Her primary subject is the human figure, dynamic or at repose, classical, familiar, and rich with meaning. Intrinsic beauty combines with conceptual depth.

Internationally known glass artist, Deanna Clayton, has been working with glass for over twenty years and was introduced to glass right out of high school.  Her work fuses the aesthetics of ancient and contemporary techniques using glass techniques that are some of the first casting techniques to be used in history. Her forms are contemporary concepts. Combined they create an object for a contemporary setting with the essence of an archeological find from another era. The use of granulated glass mixed with binders allows her to work with glass as though she were painting a canvas. She uses layer upon layer of color to achieve depth and contrast. The addition of electroplated copper to the edges of the work provides structural integrity as well as a beautiful detail accentuating the intricacy of the cast glass.

Richard Logan is a fine art photographer and painter living in Clearwater, Fl.  His career started by putting the colorful people and island scenery onto canvas while he lived in the Caribbean in the 70’s, then becoming a freelance graphic designer in Kansas City, MO in the 80’s to a career in commercial photography in Florida in the 90s, Richard has focused on photography and mixed media and is dedicated to “just creating the kind of art he wants.”

Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday, noon-5pm and by appointment.

Exhibit runs 4/12/14 to 5/2/14
