Triple Whipple Is December River Gallery Exhibit

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Triple Whipple is the December exhibit at River Gallery.  There will be an artist reception on Friday, Dec. 6, from 6:30-8 p.m. 

The artists in the exhibit include John Whipple, Lynn Whipple and Marty Whipple, all from Florida.  

The December show features the third installment of an artistic family all fascinated by assemblage, found objects, and the juxtaposition of unexpected images.   

Lynn Whipple collects objects like old photographs, wooden boxes, and lost letters to create her often whimsical mixed media assemblages.  

Finding inspiration in the combinations of things he enjoys, John Whipple juxtaposes different images for a dramatic and sometimes playful final product.

Jewelry artist Marty Whipple gives new life to discarded objects like watch parts, buttons, and pillboxes by combining them with other materials like silver and brass. 

All events are free and open to the public.

Roy Exum: This Library Comes Alive

I am pretty positive that I haven’t stepped foot in a library in the last 50 years. Between the ever-widening Internet, with all of its search engines and infinite resources, I have got about as much use for a library as I would if I read a book about a transgender person. I have neither the time or inclination. Be like trying to teach a pig to sing – the pig always get bored. ... (click for more)
