This exhibit showcases 5 works by 5 regional artists whose work varies in style and media. We celebrate these fine artists and their unique visions while demonstrating their versatility and the distinctive nature of five different media.
Richard Begbie appears to focus on realistic subject matter. But through further examination, the abstract elements in his photographs force one to experience the duality of his imagery. By using both natural and manipulated use of texture and color, he conveys a multi-layered vision to the viewer.
James A. DePietro uses a series format approach with his paintings. The works are done in oil and acrylic and touch on contemporary themes, usually putting an ironic and humorous spin on various social, political or environmentally-themed issues. Subject matter is figurative imagery painted against color fields and decorative borders.
Barbara Kozero is a mixed media sculptor. Recent works are primarily glass and ceramic mosaics which display her love of rich and varied material surfaces. Still life and botanicals offer many opportunities for interesting patterns and surface embellishment in her work.
Jacqueline Meyersonʼs ultimate goal is fooling the viewer into thinking that they are looking at a photo. Traditional soft and hard pastels allow her to create rich sensual textures and realistic transparent effects. Using both cool and warm palettes, she expresses the drama and passion she feels for her still life artwork. Painting with pastels becomes a tribute to the exploration of opportunities the media has to offer.
Maryann Riker is a mixed media artist whose collages and artistʼs books convey a visual narrative. These works encompass her love of typography as a collage element with the imagery of pop icons and Victorian portraits to create a dynamic balance between text and image.
All of these artistsʼ works has been shown in many galleries and museums and have been published in books and national magazines. They continue to exhibit their artwork in juried exhibitions throughout the United States.
5 X 5 is on display in Theatre 514 beginning September 1st! A reception for the artists will be held on September 18th from 6-8 pm.
