Press release

City Gallery announces the opening of its May exhibition entitled Flux featuring new work by member artist Liz Pagano. The show runs from May 3, to June 1, 2008. An opening reception will be held on May 3 from 4-7pm and is free and open to the public.

In her artist statement, Pagano writes, "My work is about change, transformation, transition, fluctuation and evolution. I am exploring the flux that is our lives."

"I am a printmaker, mixed media construction and installation artist. My process, whatever the medium, is about exploring interactions of chance, control, coincidence and intent," writes Pagano. "I think of my mixed media constructions as layered paintings. They are made primarily of Plexi-glass; some pieces are painted and printed with colored inks while others are sometimes carved. Often the layers include collage in the form of mono-types, encaustic monotypes, Suminigashi (paper marbling), found objects etc. In these constructions as with my printmaking, I assemble the different layers, creating a new interpretation as a whole."

Gallery hours are Thurs-Sun 12—4 p.m. or by appointment.
