Mary Barnes: Recent Work

Opening Reception: Thurs., Oct. 13, 5—8 p.m.
The Giampietro Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition from October 14 to November 10 of contemporary artworks by Mary Barnes and Jonathan Waters.
Mary Barnes' pieces make vivid use of wet and dry media, including pencil, inks, pastels, oils, pen, and matt mylar, to revisit her experiences in nature. Among her influences, she counts Kandinsky, Twombly, Scully, Rothenberg and Dine.
Jonathan Waters' collages and sculptures challenge viewers' inborn senses of perspective. His collages are flat, however they appear to float in space; and his sculptures can be interpreted as three-dimensional expressions of his collages, with edges appearing as linear elements that shift according to one's position.
There will be an opening reception on Thurs., Oct. 13, from 5—8 p.m. Normal gallery hours are Tuesday to Friday, 10 a.m.—4 p.m, and Saturday 11 a.m.—4 p.m.
