"Invisible Cities" & "Feathery Devils
AUGUST 31st - SEPTEMBER 29th
OPENING RECEPTION: SATURDAY AUGUST 31st, 5:oo-8:oo pm
ON VIEW: Large scale woodcuts and color woodcuts by Lyell Castonguay and sculptural cities under glass domes and boxes by Carand Burnet. As well as works by local ceramicists, Mary Sweeney, Tyler Gulden and Jameson Burke.
Coming to us from Northampton, MA, this incredible duo will demonstrate their many talents in our next exhibition. Originally from Maine, Castonguay is a knock down, drag out, no holds barred woodcut printmaker. With works that can push on three or four feet in any given direction, Castonguay is known for his large-scale woodcuts. No detail is lost in either his large or smaller prints. In "Feathery Devils" Catonguay showcases his mastery of calligraphic line, bright color and interplaying splatter and woodgrain texture. Burnet's three dimensional constructions reside in glass domes and shadowboxes. Her work reference specific places in invented worlds. Composed of hand cut wood, shells and snakeskin her sculptures are part natural environment and part architectural form. "Invisible Cities" is a series inspired in part by Italo Calvino's novel of the same name. Both artists' craftsmanship in vision and execution are undeniably inspiring.
