Three artists, three mediums on display at Tilting at Windmills


Tilting at Windmills Gallery is presenting a three-artist, three-medium show featuring sculptor Kathleen Friedenberg, copper and mixed media artist Diana Cook and painter X. Song Jiang, opening at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 18 at the gallery at 24 Highland Ave.

Friedenberg has honored the gallery by creating her new piece "Tilting at Windmills," depicting rider Don Quixote and his horse Rocinante. There will only be five of these pieces produced in this edition. Along with the "Tilting at Windmills" bronze there are several other pieces that will stun you with detail such as her large piece, "The Legend."

Cook has evolved in the copper expression from the training received in Italy and a mural business in New York City to many different, present day expressions. Her finite detail is best seen in her exquisite shadow boxes. She will be at the gallery starting at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 18 to discuss her work and discuss and show some of her copper creating processes.

Jiang offers yet another very original style, with each one of his brush strokes in oil offering multiple range sin hues and texture to produce a very realistic effect. The light and simplicity of his work is very compelling. He is a signature member of the Oil Painters of America.

For more information, call the Tilting at Windmills gallery at 802-362-3022.
