Joan Marie Kelly: Invisible Personas
Apr 24-May 19
In this collection of work, Joan Marie Kelly attempts to paint invisible personas by reaching beyond the usual boundaries and perceptions that separate groups of people from one another. Opening Reception: Thu, Apr 26, 5-8pm. Joan Marie Kelly hosts a discussion on ''Serving Community in a Market-Driven Culture of Mass Distractions.'': Sat, Apr 28, 2-3pm.
May 22-Jun 16
The paintings span nearly a decade during which the work, dominated by contrasting themes of forest and sea, slowly evolved into a semi abstract language of marks. These are paintings, originating in the studio, where the organic, graphic lines of trees, grasses, underbrush and water are built upon sources both from memory and onsite watercolors. The artist will be present during Saturdays after the reception. Opening Reception: Thu, May 24, 6-8pm.
