The Village Theater at Cherry Hill is pleased to showcase the featured works of artists Charles Rumschlag, Jon Lange, Nancy Kozlowski, Nick Bair, and Took Gallagher, in a collaborative exhibit, entitled “Animal & Wildlife Art”, in The Gallery at Cherry Hill now through June 28, 2022. An opening art reception will be held on June 2, 2022, from 6 - 8 p.m., which is free and open to the public. 

 Featured works by this month’s group of artists include animal and wildlife-inspired pieces, each with their own unique interpretations. In this collaborative exhibit, a wide variety of art mediums and techniques are used to create captivating fauna pieces, such as up-cycling, acrylic, painting, pastels, airbrushing, and photography.  

“God created a wonderful world filled with amazing creatures. I am truly entertained seeking, watching, and photographing wild animals in their natural habitat,” says featured artist, Charles Rumschlag, showcasing his astounding wildlife photography in this month’s exhibit. Fellow featured artist Took Gallagher creates his pieces with a different art medium expressing, “The collages I make are usually built over up-cycled paintings or my own older unfinished works in process. As I add decorative papers, creatures emerge through the layers that I outline in pencil, then I further define them with more papers, ink, acrylic, stitching, etc., so that viewers might get a glimpse of what I saw.”

 Each artist showcased in this exhibit displays their unique wildlife art interpretations with an array of different mediums and techniques. Primarily a landscape artist in 2D, featured artist Nancy Kozlowski derives inspiration from domestic scenes as well as glimpses of farms and wilderness. While as artist Nick Bair, utilizing the medium of painting and drawing, showcases his passion for prehistoric life and contemporary large mammals in his pieces. Expressing through the medium of airbrushing, Michigan native Jon Lange creates large-scale canvas paintings ranging in size from 2’ x 3’ to 5’ x 12’. His passion for airbrushing began in 1998 and he often works up to 9 hours a day creating and perfecting his projects. 

This art exhibit at The Gallery at Cherry Hill is free and open to the public during gallery hours: Tuesday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.; Thursday and Friday from 4 - 8 p.m.; during all public performances; or by special appointment arranged via email to elli.fassois@canton-mi.org.
