2008 Higgins Art Gallery Exhibitions
… In A Flash
October 9–November 7, 2008
Explore the work, inspiration and studio environment of artist in residence Anne Flash in this unique installation. Flash works with colors that are bold and images that run from very tiny to huge. Her primary mediums are oil and pastel on paper and wood. The images stretch – sometimes over 8 feet – and invite the viewer to move and scan and respond to the artwork as a series of moments or singular statement.
September 3–October 2, 2008
This exhibition features the diverse artwork of eight contemporary artists from both the east and west coasts. Each uses color to define space, express feeling or create a mood. The artists carefully calibrate the use of color with a rich and tactile palette.
Point of View: Women Creating 2008
February 27–April 4, 2008
The show will highlight the female point of view as expressed in abstract and narrative visual form. Intimacy, humor and the power of sensitivity are portrayed through a wide range of styles and techniques including drawing, painting, sculpture, installation and assemblage. The subject matter draws from materials, techniques and colors often associated with the female, and offers unique examples of work informed by individual life experiences reflecting the subtle and not so subtle female presence.
