GUEST ARTIST, March/April: Thomas Sterner
Off Track Art is pleased to have Thomas Sterner as our guest artist for March and April.
Thomas Sterner is a sculptor and mixed media artist who is an important element in the fabric of Carroll County. Over the years his installations, organic sculptures and intricately carved wooden plaques and doors have both challenged and delighted viewers.
His work reminds the viewers of the delicate connection between humankind and nature. The natural wood canvas is delicately carved and enhanced with paint. Whether the work is infused with textual references or not, the work can be interpreted on many levels. Currently he is working on a series of architectural doors such as “A is for Art” which can be seen in the lobby of the Carroll Arts Center.
GUEST ARTIST, May/June: Jodi O’Connell
Off Track Art welcomes colorful painter, Jodi O’Connell, as our guest artist for May and June. Drop by to the reception on Friday, May 5th between 5:30 and 7:30 PM to meet Jodi. An expressive painter of traditional genres, Jodi renders her subjects in bright, glowing colors.
