Description

Saturday, September 22, 2 p.m.
Free for members; included in price of admission.

Join collage artist Anita Silvestri and printmaker/painter Donna Morin for gallery tours and discussions of their respective exhibitions Layered Views 2004 – 2018 and part:counterPART.

In her exhibition Layered Views 2004 – 2018, Anita Silvestri has created strange new worlds of deeply structured collages. Fantastical images of vivid skies, mythological beasts, and exotic temple-like structures give way, upon further examination, to familiar imagery. “By overlapping, distorting, hiding, and revealing common images from magazines, advertisements, and photos,” says Silvestri, “I strive to create strange yet familiar landscapes inviting the viewer to focus on the questions and problems these images suggest.”

Donna Morin’s exhibition, part:counterPART,is a personal journey through oil paintings, prints, and collages, pairing framed paper works with canvases, with different times and viewpoints. Morin describes her work in this way: “The work is based on simple graphic shapes: the circle, square, and other geometric forms. The underlying structural principles of this work are informed by the formal tenets of 20th century Modernism. Yet it is a personal vocabulary, which includes more than an interest in pure abstraction. My works are the summation of a lifetime of knowledge and experience. They are about the complexity of composition, color, and form.” 

Cost: Varies
