March's third thursday art stroll event in downtown Orlando was especially entertaining this month. My particular favorite stop was Jai Gallery located in the Exchange Building on Garland Avenue. Coralie Claeysen-Gleyzon, director of Jai, put together Vessels, an impressive solo exhibit of work by Barbara Sorensen. Monumental sculptures, pedestal pieces and wall works of clay were assembled to showcase her talents. She describes her work this way, "I build in layers, stacking and joining the clay as I move upward to create layers of antiquity, layers of time, and layers of myself. Petrified ghosts and seas of ancient years are recorded as the process drapes the landscape. I let the sculpture lead me where it should go."
