Current exhibit by Michelle O'Mahoney
January 9 - March 31 2020
Thrasher Opera House is hosting an exhibit of works by Green Lake artist Michelle O'Mahoney from January 9- March 31, 2020. The exhibit takes place in the Thrasher Art Gallery, 510 Mill St., during Thrasher business hours, week-days from 10 a.m.-4 p.m
The nature of Michelle O’Mahoney’s work varies from time to time, but it almost always involves windows. She loves old windows and is fascinated by the effects she can create on the old wavy glass. The older the better because she transforms the windows into beautiful works of art.
This exhibit is titled "New Beginnings”. She is drawn to the energy around us - the force of a pounding surf as depicted in ‘Blue Run’ or the carvings of a mountainous hillside in ‘Nova’. The series is all about the way objects in space move with one another. How one motion affects the next is a continuing source of fascination. The New Beginnings Series layers acrylics with inks creating a fixed with fluid feel. Old glass has bubbles, waves, inclusions and varying thickness…all kinds of beautiful imperfections and that’s why we love it! Michelle adds additional character and dimension with an interesting and curious wavy glass application.
Michelle was born in Sisseton, SD. She graduated from California State University, Long Beach with a B.S. in Business Administration and Michelle and her husband Mark now live in Green Lake, WI.
Michelle will be available to visit with concert-goers during select shows in January-March.
