A new art exhibit at the NSC Gallery, 1651 Jefferson Pkwy, opens on Monday, September 9.
This exhibit features the work of two artists, Joyce Francis and Griff Wigley. There will be an Opening Reception on Monday, Sept 9, 5-7pm.
Griff Wigley started taking photos of Northfield and its community events in 2003, as part of his work in covering Northfield for two local websites, Northfield.org and Locally Grown Northfield. He now has an online gallery of over 15,000 photos (bit.ly/griffwigleynorthfieldphotos). For this exhibit, he has selected images that feature close-ups of various objects with identifiable scenes of Northfield in the background.
Joyce Francis is an artist with a passion for a newly discovered medium: gel printing. She writes, “I got hooked in early June and have spent the entire summer totally obsessed with gel-plate printing. This mono printing process is full of magical surprises. Even though the artist has control over the design idea one never knows for sure what will be revealed when the paper is pulled off the plate. The possibilities are endless. “ Francis will be demonstrating this process at the opening reception on Sept 9.
