Time to take a look at the non-fiber art in the Triple Threat Exhibit. The theme of LittleBig encouraged artists to enter a really big piece along with one or more really small pieces and packed the second level balcony with paintings, sculptures and other media.

Some artists had more difficulty with this concept than others. Going really small is not as easy as one might think!

Nor is going really big for some. I was thrilled to see a new group of work by a favorite artist of mine, Denys Knight. But she too didn't show much range between this her largest piece (maybe about 11 x 14) and the smaller framed pieces next to it. But each piece showed her mastery of manipulating metal, as in the piece I purchased last year. Her grouping was in a very dark spot, alas, and this photo taken with a flash and doctored on the computer hardly does justice to the piece.
The rest of these are just ones that caught my eye. Dan Carpenter specializes in this type of painting, very popular in our area of woods and hunting.
The only artist featuring charcoal, Mary Berryhill impressed with her "Working Hands". Click on the picture for a larger version to see the details and read her statement.
At the time I took this photo, the signage wasn't up for this artist so I don't know who painted these. They were so different from anything else on this floor, so much brighter, and leaning toward pointillism. A close look reveals the texture she achieves.
The final segment of the Triple Threat was provided by a POAC sponsored student art program called Kaleidoscope. What an impressive sight to see this wall on the main floor covered with masks!
That's pretty much the exhibit - EXCEPT I have saved one special piece to highlight in its very own post. Check back soon!
