Announcing SUMMER EXHIBITS 2012
We’re so excited to introduce you to some new friends we’ve made over the past year, collaborating on their exhibits which will hit Canton – finally – this summer!
RESUSCITATORUM: New Work by RICH PELLEGRINO
Rich joins us from his studio in Rhode Island (www.richpellegrino.com), bringing along his special brand of illustration, painting and artistry. RESUSCITATORUM is Latin for “reinvigorate” or “refresh” and, in this exhibit, Pellegrino attempts to breathe new life into the fairy tales, myths and literary classic of his youth. It’s a whole new kind of Princess Show, which finds Pellegrino painting a myriad of sleeping beauties, all clutching symbols and objects from their respective stories, inviting viewers to recollect these ladies of yore. These contemporary interpretations of the slumbering promise to awaken us all to new ways of viewing the old stories we’ve come to love. Don’t miss out!
NATALIE DUNHAM Overtakes Our Gallery
Natalie Dunham (www.nataliedunham.com) is know for transforming large empty spaces into surreal environments filled with hanging, suspended, towering and creeping large-scale works made of natural and found objects. We were so impressed with what we’d seen that we sent her some drawings and measurements of the gallery and asked her to work her magic. The result? An opportunity for you to walk, crawl and wander through a plethora of forms, shapes, textures and materials, all exploring the notions of transition and change – how we operate on the border between what was, what is and what’s to become. This is an experience unlike anything the gallery has hosted before.
THEN AND NOW: National Juried Exhibit
Artists from around the country will dig in their chests, trunks and closets, pull out artwork they created as children and then reinterpret those old pieces as adults. the results will hang side-by-side in an exhibit that bridges the gap between youth and maturity.
THANKS FOR YOUR CONTINUING SUPPORT OF THE ARTS!
