Rumriver Art Center: Jan Johansen Gallery opening-Glenn Allenspach
Saturday, April 1 @ 2:00 pm - Sunday, April 30 @ 4:00 pm
Glenn Allenspace is a photographer and pottery, his show will open on April 1st at Rumriver Art Center’s Jan Johansen Gallery
Glenn says of his creative process “I take a simple approach to both photography and pottery. Photographs that speak most directly to me show a clear, straightforward look at the world. The land, the people and nature are my subjects. The beauty of light and shadow at certain times of the day and year, or the connection between people, animals, and their surroundings provide little windows of time and space to contemplate.
Simple wheel thrown pots, crafted with an eye toward shape, size, balance and utility inform my pottery work. Yes, I collect and use the work of other potters as well as my own and hope that some in my audience in turn collect my pots. It’s an ongoing conversation about home, the comfort of a quiet (or lively) dinner with friends and family, and just surrounding yourself with things for the joy and beauty of the making and the using.”
