Ode To  Ancient Wings and Precious Water
a collaborative art installation by Zoe Wolfe and Carlene Roters

Inspired by the natural environment and the peace that it offers, this collaboration is in homage to habitat. Paintings of Sandhill cranes float suspended from the ceiling. Pools and Ripples of water created in clay ground us to the earth.

The media of glazed ceramic and paintings batiked on rice paper are unique in their juxtaposition. While complementary in color and concept, one is ephemeral and the other constructed to last forever. Together we experience the illustrated moment as both fleeting, and in its continuum.

Exhibition dates: February 12 – March 13, 2021.

Reception: Saturday, February 13th 10am – 6pm. Social distancing observed and masks required.

About the Artists:
Carlene Roters and Zoe Wolfe met as colleagues teaching Art at WNMU. Carlene is known for her paintings and Zoe for her ceramic sculpture, although both love to work in other mediums. They began collaborating in the spring of 2020. With COVID-19 it was necessary to work separately in their expertise, constantly communicating for cohesiveness.
