Exhibit: Sarah Meyers Brent - "Living Paint"
September 2—September 30, 2014, Sun/Tue/Wed/Thu/Fri
UMass Amherst Campus
Using globs of dried paint, recycled fabric, paint rags, and decaying flowers, Sarah Meyers Brent’s mixed-media pieces flow out of and accrete to the canvas and walls. In the dialogue between the themes of growth and decay pervading her paintings, sculptures, and collages, Sarah’s works are themselves in a state of flux, as if going in though their own process of degradation. In a statement accompanying the exhibition, the artist states: “In this age of technology, when we are steps removed from nature it is important for art to allow the viewer to experience what is alive and physical.”
Opening Reception September 7 from 2 to 4 pm.
Gallery Hours: Tuesday through Friday, 1 - 6, Sunday 2 - 5 closed holidays
