Liquidambar Featured Artists’ Reception October
October 7, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
This Sunday, October 7, there will be a reception from 2:00-4:00 pm for our Featured Artists, Judith Maier and Nancy Martin. Everyone is invited!!!
Judith writes: As a young child I grew up in Brooklyn. My family frequently visited my Grandmother Rosie who lived in a tiny ivy covered cottage in Brighton Beach, just blocks away from Coney Island. There I explored the ocean, the boardwalk, amusement park rides and Friday night fireworks. It was a magical. The cornucopia of colors, faces, music, and exhilarating rides fascinated me. Along with my love of fairytales, puppet shows, the ballet and circuses these experiences stirred my imagination and inspired my sculptural work today. For me, my figures have a life of their own and making them gives me great joy. I want to share this with the viewer and spark their imagination, enabling them to have a personal, enchanted relationship with these companions.
The Ossartem show, Nancy’s Latin neologism for “Bone Art,” features skulls and skeletons depicted in prismacolor marker and acrylic paints on bristol board and canvas. Each piece was sketched, inked, hand-cut,re-inked, and mounted onto a painted canvas. The pieces show a dedication to the accuracy of anatomical illustration but with an artistic flair. Each skull or skeleton was drawn referencing a corporeal specimen.
Both artists will be here to answer any questions you may have about their art. Please, come out and say hello.
I am pleased to announce that we will have Diane Winger playing guitar and vocals during the reception.
