Beginning August 31st, Fountain Street Gallery will exhibit “Awakening” featuring the work of Miller Opie and Rebecca Skinner. “Awakening” investigates the act of giving the discarded new life. Through their respective explorations—Opie in sculptural forms and Skinner in photographic images—the artists animate what has been left behind. Decayed materials and abandoned places, the stuff of this exhibition, are transformed in the artists’ hands. Opie creates lyric sculptures of found animal bones, feathers and oriental bittersweet. Skinner’s richly detailed photographs expose the beauty and emotion of long-forgotten places. By breathing life into forsaken objects and places, Opie and Skinner together celebrate rebirth and offer the viewer an experience of replenishment and renewal.
