Opening Reception, Thursday, April 4, 7:00 pm, on view April 2-29, Gallery: Brooke Lambert primarily creates collagraphs because she is drawn to the sculptural qualities and rich range of color she can achieve in working that way. She thinks of her plates as sculptures in their own right. Printing and painting them, however, gives her the option to vary images with changes in color, value and texture.
These Sea Changes prints are intended to suggest the abundance of nature and beauty of the ocean. The physicality of making the plates ripping--tearing and stapling of fabric and mesh and slathering of gesso--contrasts to the light and comforting images the prints present.
On view April 2-29, Main Hall: Tanya Hayes Lee is a visual artist who works primarily in oil on canvas to depict landscapes — those that do exist and those that should — in a modern Impressionist style. Of this work, Ms. Hayes recently said, “My landscapes and seascapes are representative of places and states of mind I need to inhabit. My love of the sea goes back to my childhood on Cape Ann in Massachusetts and many of my paintings of sea and sky are based on those memories as much as on current trips to shores and oceans as far afield as I can find the wherewithal to visit.”
Teen Gallery, on view through spring 2019: Based on the theme of the Portrait, each piece showcases some of the many ways in which the human image is interpreted and presented. Pieces in this show are from both Newton North and Newton South High Schools. Frames by Abraxis Framing in Auburndale.
