Seriously, Series

Curated by Rebecca Godin

On display at the Library October through December 2011

The opening reception will take place on Friday, October 7, 5:00 to 8:00 PM, in conjunction with Gallery Opening night.  Please enter the Library through the BorgWarner Community Room Door, behind the bus shelter on Green Street.

Almost all artists explore a series sometime during their careers. From Monet to O’Keefe, Kahlo to Ringgold, ancient times to the present, the attractions of creating a series are powerful and varied.

An artist can view an image, a motif, or concept from multiple perspectives. Repetition and variation of a theme can be seductive and rewarding.

Sometimes an artist can create vastly different images within a series which still expand one idea, one portrait, place, activity, color or quest.

Seriously, Series offers abstraction, design, photography, sculpture, portraiture, place, time, obsessions and joys which we hope you enjoy.
