On Friday, December 7, the Gallery at 3S Artspace is open until 8pm as part of the monthly Art 'Round Town art walk. Held year round, Art 'Round Town occurs the first Friday of every month. Galleries of downtown Portsmouth open their doors to the public for a gallery walk that celebrates our inspired, intimate urban community. We hope you'll stop by, have a glass of wine and take in our new exhibit, Rock/Paper/Scissors featuring the works of Juliet Karelsen and Dylan Metrano.

ROCK/PAPER/SCISSORS

works by Juliet Karelsen and Dylan Metrano

Rock/Paper/Scissors combines Universal Forest, a micro/macro environment by Juliet Karelsen complemented by the layered papercuttings of Dylan Metrano. 

Universal Forest / Juliet Karelsen / Artist Statement:

In all its various forms and configurations, my work cross references painting, stitching, tapestry, rug making, embroidery, abstract art, fantasy, landscape, textile, miniature worlds, and even science - from botany to mycology to planetary and solar - touching on the micro and macro scales. Are we looking out into the vast universe? Down at an exotic petri dish or at the lichens and moss on the forest ground? 


Papercuttings / Dylan Metrano / Artist Statement:

This series of layered papercuttings show the subject range I like to work with: portraits, animals, and scenes from the unique landscape of my home, Monhegan Island. The works created for Rock/Paper/Scissors push beyond the sum of my body of work and into the strange and unexpected. Inspired by whimsy and abstraction, I allowed those elements to sneak into this new body of work.
