A Common Thread: Collective Coffee Show and Art Reception

Please join the35212 and The Birmingham Art Collective  at Crestwood Coffee on April 1, 2010 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for an opening reception for Dréa Zacharenko’s latest work, A Common Thread. This illustration series explores the connections between objects and memories and will be on display at Crestwood Coffee throughout the month of April.

Inspired by many areas of art study, Dréa  combines principles of both studio art and graphic design in her dynamic mixed media pieces. She often begins work with either a birch board panel or a chipboard panel. She attempts to translate the world around her, often literally, gathering scraps of paper with simplified shapes and handwritten text and incorporating them into her work. Her work shows a constant attempt to make a better connection with her surroundings. Her sketchy, rough style forms a sort of stream-of-consciousness dialogue that involves the viewer in her pursuit to connect the dots of daily life. She studied at Louisiana Tech University, receiving a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Graphic Design and Studio Art 2-D. She is a native of Louisiana and has made Birmingham her home since 2007.

WillowPlease join the 35212 and Crestwood Coffee on Monday, March 15th from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. for a closing reception for Willow Scott’s Tentacles show. In addition to having the opportunity to linger over Willow’s multimedia pieces that have been on display for the past few weeks, you can see the creative process in action as she works on a new painting. Crestwood Coffee will have their normal menu items available for purchase. This is a great way to support one of our local businesses, mingle with neighbors, and show appreciation for one of Birmingham’s talented artists. We hope you can come!
