Framers Market and Gallery features the work of calligraphic artist Sid Freeman through the month of February.
A Prescott Valley resident since 1993, Freeman has worked as a professional calligrapher, calligraphic teacher and artist since 1987, and has worked as an adjunct instructor at Yavapai College and Prescott College.
Freeman's calligraphic productions include the Wyoming Governor's Arts Awards and Federal Marshall's Proclamations.
Her artwork shows in private collections, the Wyoming State Art Museum and the University of Wyoming Art Museum, as well as the Jerome Artists' Cooperative Gallery.
"Calligraphy is drawing on both sides of the brain," Freeman says. "Taking that farther by pairing lettering rhythms and shapes with images has opened an exciting form of expression for me. I have also found the energy produced by juxtaposition of complementary and sometimes contradictory quotations opens up new meanings."
Freeman works mostly in watercolor and recently explored letter-carving in stone.
The Framers Market will hold an opening reception from 3 to 6 p.m. Saturday at their new location in the Depot Marketplace Shopping Center.
