When Thoughts Become Art through March 6, 2016
Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center in Solomons, Maryland is excited to announce the extension through March 6, 2016 of When Thoughts Become Art, the art of John A. Schaffner & J. Luray Schaffner. The wonderful show is placed upstairs, in the Mezzanine Gallery of the Murray Arts Building.
This dynamic Southern Maryland artistic couple, John & Luray Schaffner met at the Columbus College of Art & Design in Columbus (CCAD), Ohio in 1958. John was two years ahead of Luray but after they both graduated they were married in 1962 and have been creating art ever since. Celebrating their 54th wedding anniversary this past year and still very prolific in creating work. John creating mostly wood sculptures, Luray, creating mixed media collages. Both work in the abstract style and one can see the influence of CCAD in their work. They even surprise each other sometimes with designs and color that resemble one another even though they have separate studios apart from each other.
