Functional Works Show Opens at Bay School

The above photo features the work of AnnitaB Studio (jacket), Janet Griffin (felted vase), Wendy Jensen (pottery), and the Mathews High School Special Education Students (upcycled record bowls). All of these items will be featured in the Functional Works Show at the Art Speaks Gallery at the Bay School in Mathews.

Do you love to live with hand-made items? There is something so personal about drinking coffee from a hand-made mug, slipping on a hand-woven shawl, and putting your feet up on a coffee table crafted from locally-gathered wood. If you wish to seek a connection with your intimate surroundings, visit the Art Speaks Gallery’s Functional Works Show and find some hand-made treasures to bring into your life.

Continuing through the end of July, the show features locally-made pottery, furnishings, metal work, wood work, and clothing, both fully handcrafted and reworked and hand-dyed.

Also showing in the Art Speaks Gallery is artwork in a variety of media, all priced at $100.

The Bay School, a non-profit community art school and gallery, is located at 279 Main Street, Mathews, and is supported in part by the Virginia Commission for the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, Dominion Energy, Mathews County, Chesapeake Bank, and Tri-Rivers Investment Group of Davenport and Company.
