Artist Statement: A fascination with the beauty and complexity of the microscopic world fuels my paintings. I am inspired by the abstract shapes and intense color of this hidden world. I explore the connections between science and art, conscious of the profound effects these minute forms have on the universe.
Virtual Show with works by Marina Powdermaker.
We hope you will enjoy browsing these mixed media collages by June 2020 artist, Marina Powdermaker. Contact Marina at email@example.com or visit her website.
Artist Statement: I work in the medium of mixed media collage. Using paints, papers, crayons, markers, stencils, stamps, fabric, embossing powders, pastes, whatever other materials asks to be included in a given piece. Adding materials, pulling them back, adding more, each piece builds layer upon layer - until “Done” layers herself within me.
Keep in mind our Teen Gallery for when the library reopens to the public. Currently on view is a delightful show with works by students from both Newton North and Newton South High Schools!
Printmaking by Newton High School Students, Teen Area: Each year as part of their course of study, Newton’s high school students from both North and South engage in a printmaking project. Printmaking as an art form has been around since the 15th century and has deep artistic roots. Despite its traditional role, it is still practiced today and variations on the classic medium abound. An ensemble of student musicians will delight us with chamber music as part of the festivities. Refreshments will be served. The public is welcome to attend this special event. The show will be on view through spring 2020.
The library wishes to extend its gratitude to Eric Blomster of Abraxis Framing Co. in Newton, who generously provided the frames cost-free, and to members of the Newton Art Association who hung the show. (Image by: C. Murray)
