September 11, 2013The Washington County Arts Council is pleased to announce its October 2013 exhibits, “Jessica Craver: Sacred & Secluded” and "Cassandra Qunell: Ambivalence". Jessica Craver began her artistic expression by filling the pages of her sketchbook with variations of multi-pointed, angular shapes in pencil and ink. Fascinated by the lines, curves and sharp points, she found herself continuously evaluating the relationship of one form with another. She explored these ideas through many mediums; however, carving these forms into clay proved to have personal significance. Vivid, Bold, Scintillating. Dramatic Lines, Skillful Brushstrokes, Whimsical Dots. All of these things and more bring the ever changing 'Rotatski Art' of Cassandra Qunell to life. Not meant to hang listless on a wall and be admired for one intended perspective, Cassandra's art demands to be viewed from all directions. East Coast Bred and West Coast Born; Cassandra's style has influences of family, locality, spirituality, and emotion. With a relentless desire to inspire, express, and create; Cassandra has taken her zestful and experiential approach to life, love, and the world around us and--using a faux-Russian accent--taken the time to make art that will have people looking at life from a different perspective. The Washington County Arts Council will host an opening reception on Friday, October 4, 2013 from 5-7 pm at the gallery located at 34 S. Potomac Street in the Arts & Entertainment District in downtown Hagerstown. The exhibits run from 10/4/2013 through 10/29/2013.
