Share this Post

I am very honored to have a painting accepted for Attleboro Art Museum’s Opposites exhibition. A national juried themed exhibition on view Wednesday, June 12 – Thursday, July 12.

Exhibition: June 12, 2019 – July 12, 2019
Artist Reception & Awards: Saturday, June 15th  |  2 – 4 pm
Location: The Attleboro Arts Museum | 86 Park St. | Attleboro | MA | 02703

The Explorations exhibition will be held at the Attleboro Arts Museum. The national juried exhibition was open to all mediums, sizes and interpretations of OPPOSITES. The Attleboro Arts Museum asks, “What’s the difference?” A call for artists to explore opposition in nature, qualities, direction, result, or significance.

In the accepted painting, Wingnut & Maple Seed, I was struck by the similarity of shapes and the absolutely antithetical nature of the objects themselves. The wingnut, an anchor rusted to the spot, unable to budge — and the maple seed, nature’s own design, intended to catch the wind and take flight.
