Nature Inspires: Monotypes by Lynda Goldberg

Joint Opening Reception, Tuesday, May 7, 7:00 pm, on view May 2-30, Gallery: Lynda Goldberg is fascinated by the positive and negative spaces created in nature by things such as leaves, pine needles and clematis vines. Her work starts with an idea or feeling which she expresses in textures and colors using natural and manmade found objects. She uses monotype, chine collé, stencil, stamping, masking and other techniques to create her pieces. Her goal is to transmit her enthusiasm for the printmaking process and its creativeness to viewers. This show is part of the Newton Festival of the Arts.

Moments of Peace by Alfred De Angelo

Joint Opening Reception, Tuesday, May 7, 7:00 pm, on view May 2-30, Main Hall: The medieval triptychs format has always intrigued Alfred De Angelo. He feels that our experiences in life are usually localized and subjective, creating a series of impressions on a personal scale. This series of surrealist paintings look 'through' outward appearances and begin to embody the essential mystery of existence presenting what the artist sees as small surrealist visual poems. This show is part of the Newton Festival of the Arts.
