(The Niche is located on the first floor of Founders Hall)
Through Jan. 11, 2012.
(Reception was on Nov. 17.)
Irene K. Miller’s mixed media works emphasize the abstract qualities of texture, pattern, and surface to express formal, narrative and personal experiences. These asymmetric compositions emphasize foreground spatial dynamics and the creative process. Actual and printed textures of fabric, string and other materials combine within matrixes of photographic imagery, graphic shapes and gestural marks.
Monotype and collaged works like “Squared #1” from the “Round Square and Squared” series emphasize color and a quilt-like horizontal and vertical framework. Compositions from this series offer open diagrammatical associations and shifting aerial perspectives.
Miller has exhibited her work nationally and prints in her Erector Square studio in New Haven. She graduated from the University of Delaware and earned a master’s degree in library science from Southern Connecticut State University.
There will be a reception for this show on Tues., Nov. 29, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Pegasus Gallery.
Also currently on view in the Niche Gallery at Middlesex Community College:
Rosemary DeLucco-Alpert’s 30 year career in photography has included work in commercial and fine art fields, as well as writing about and teaching photography. The three principles of integrity, grace and beauty guide her practice and outline her belief in photography's expressive and communicative power.
This series of photographs explores the picturesque beauty of sacred natural spaces known to the artist through her life. The subtexts of these works are personal experiences of grief and the healing process connected with their creation.
DeLucco-Alpert instructs photography at MxCC and Paier College of Art in Hamden. Her professional and educational experiences include working with National Geographic photographers at “West Light” photo stock agency in Los Angeles and being among Ansel Adam’s last students.
