Your Private Collection Art Gallery is proud to present
Aaron Thane Tate and Cynthia Ross as their featured artists at Granbury’s Last Saturday Gallery Night on August 27—5-8pm
Aaron Tate’s work in solid worked, blown, and cast glass includes natural subjects, made objects, and landscapes. Tate has developed a style in which the images are often beautiful or classic and, yet, enigmatic. By the use of a repetitive light and dark technique superimposed on the surface color, he is able to affect an atmospheric quality to sculptures.
Tate worked in lead positions with world-renowned glass artists Dale Chihuly and Martin Blank in Seattle for 13 years. Projects included the famous Chihuly’s Persian and Sea Forms, the Ikebana series, the Seattle Symphony chandelier and the Bellagio ceiling.
“Some of my pieces are happy and uplifting and others make one pensive and thoughtful. That is what the artist strives for—a personal response to a sculpture, an object, that evokes something from one’s personal experiences in this space-time.” said Tate.
Cynthia Ross constantly pushes to create new and exciting elements in her art, incorporating the colors and textures found in nature. When she is not honing her skills in the studio, she can be found taking photographs or searching for items she wants to emulate in glass. Cynthia finds she draws consistently on her landscape design background when creating movement and using color.
Last Saturday Gallery Night –Your Private Collection is one of five galleries which host this free art walk on the last Saturday of each month on the Historic Square in Granbury.
These “Galleries of Granbury” also include Artefactz, Langdon Center Art Gallery, Shanley House Art Gallery and Uptown Arts-John G. Campbell Gallery. D’Vine Wine and EnVision Creatives also are destinations. All are open until 8pm with “meet the artists,” opening receptions, art demonstrations, hors d’oeuvres, wine and music.
Your Private Collection reminds you that someone can show you the technical aspects of artwork, but a relationship with art is developed by spending time viewing art and meeting artists and adds a new love in your life.
