DENMARK — Denmark Arts Center, 50 West Main St., will open their third exhibit of this season, “Fire & Air,” from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 1. “Fire & Air” is the final exhibit of the art center’s “Elements” trilogy, which previously included “Earth” and “Water.”

“Fire & Air’s” six presenting artists are Sheldon Ann, Alison Borelli, Emily Burr, Janet Gill, Nora Moore Lloyd and Jo Scheder. The opening precedes the performance of DaPonte String Quartet, which starts at 7:30 p.m.

Jo Scheder describes her technique she used with “Breath Wish.” “The technique involves curating emergent light. I manipulate transient ambient light, refracted through glass or liquids, to find images as they appear and disappear. I photograph the images, then explore and develop them with digital tools. Whether in representational or abstract photography, my intention is to encourage an experience of place, moment, or discovery. These pieces’ comment on climate change, hope, and apathy.”

The artists expressing this season’s DAC’s themes have focused their creative, civic and natural imaginations on the four basic elements and encouraged many marvelous and varied visual interpretations. They had hoped to inspire and move their collective imaginations toward a sustainable planet by bringing awareness to the many visual forms these themes could have taken. The DAC is happy to say all artists rose to the occasion.

The Denmark Arts Gallery is open each Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. and continues to show through the fall.
