Vision Gallery exhibit featuring artists from Tech ShopFrom Thin Air II: Art from Techshop
Here’s what three artists can do when they access state of the art equipment at a fabrication workshop and studio in Downtown Chandler
Vision Gallery in Downtown Chandler presents From Thin Air II: Art from TechShop, May 25 through June 2, 2017. The exhibition features the work of three artists who use the membership-based TechShop, a fabrication workshop and studio located in Downtown Chandler, to bring their creations to life. Visitors to this exhibit will experience geometric forms that use repetition and pattern to create unique artworks.
Jamie Cordelier creates three-dimensional metal sculptures that aim to compare the differences and similarities between cultures with geometric influenced forms.
Lauren Copley is a pioneer in a process of her own invention called laser annealing.  Using a computer-guided laser, she draws on the metal to create otherworldly colorful geometric images of alien and robot-inspired figures.
Emily Longbrake is a multi-media artist who uses lasers to cut wood and paper into intricate shapes that evoke landscapes and patterns from nature.
“Visitors to this exhibit will enjoy the rich perspective of these three artists who weave repetition and pattern into their pieces, resulting in both geometric and organic forms” says Peter Bugg, Visual Arts Coordinator at Vision Gallery.
The public is invited to attend an opening reception with the artists from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, May 25, at the Vision Gallery, located at 10 E. Chicago St., in Chandler. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. The exhibits are free for the public to see. Visit for more on the gallery and this exhibit.
