reception: Ink Happiness A solo show by Marnago
This show is an emotional journey through memories from the past and present, from darkness through light. Every character tells a story, a hidden secret that must be discovered. The artist states: “In my childhood I began to draw my destiny with shapes and lines, drawing was the only way to escape from my reality.”
• Founders' Gallery (AWD) info
reception: Swim Lessons by John deLorimier
The Swim Lessons paintings were inspired by watching my child take swimming lessons. John was interested in showing the scary predicament of a new swimmer being watched over by a teacher. These paintings lead to the more madonna-like mother and child paintings.
• 1325 Donors' Gallery (AWD) info
Sanda Manuila's oil and mixed media pastel and gouache paintings are stylized representational images from which exude an allegorical quality. They depict a state of mind in which the boundaries between dream and reality have become very fluid. As the figure loses its definition it takes on a ghostly quality leaving the viewer in doubt of what is appearing or disappearing.
