Gallery: To Be Continued by Judith Greenberg
Reception: Wednesday, February 6, 7:00 pm
Judith Greenberg's artistic expression is part of an ongoing process of discovery. She uses printmaking to create segments, experimenting with materials and ideas to inform the direction her work will take. Eventually the parts are collaged and integrated into a painting that combines monoprinting, etching, lithography, relief printing and paint. To Be Continued will be on view in the Gallery from February 2-27. The artist welcomes the public to attend her opening reception on Wednesday, February 6 at 7:00pm.
Judith Greenberg earned a Masters in Fine Arts at the University of Wisconsin. She has taught in public schools in N.Y. and MA. The recipient of numerous awards, Ms. Greenberg has been featured in print in The Artist's Magazine, Studio Visit, The Wall Street Journal, The Providence Journaland The Boston Globe. Her work is in collections in the U. S. and abroad.
Reception: Saturday, February 2, 2:00 pm
by D. Bemis
Dawna Bemis and Charyl Weissbach will display their encaustics in the Main Hall from February 2-27. An opening reception is planned for Saturday, February 2 at 2:00 pm. The show titled Holding Pattern will feature the unique work of each artist.
Dawna Bemis's practice is a meditation on patterns that provide her with a calm still space in the middle of a hectic world. She gathers her inspiration from Mandalas, Islamic tiles and the Spirograph and kaleidoscopes she played with as a child. She is a founding member of New England Wax and has shown widely in New England.
Charyl Weissbach uses minimal color, pattern and arboreal-based imagery to explore nature's vast and distinguished beauty. She incorporates stenciled wax, resin and accents consisting of different types of metal leaf into her work. Her work is represented in galleries and is included in many private and corporate collections throughout the U.S.
