Hampden Gallery Exhibit Explores ‘Form and Content’

January 17, 2014

“Form and Content,” a group exhibition featuring paintings, drawings and sculpture, opens Sunday, Jan. 26 at the Hampden Gallery in Southwest.

Form and content are considered distinct aspects of a work of art. Form refers to the work’s style, techniques and media, and how design elements are used. Content refers to what a work of art is about. In the Hampden show, form and content battle each other for supremacy.

The participating artists, who are members of the gallery’s monthly critique group, are Eileen Claveloux, Joyce Conlon, Karen Evans, Deborah Garner, Barbara Haddan, Alicia Hunsicker, Karen Loomis, Joyce Miller, Susan Montgomery, Jenny Tibbetts and Chris Lamb Toubeau. Tibbets curated the exhibit, which is on display through Feb. 14.

An opening reception is scheduled for Jan. 26 from 2-4 p.m.

Gallery hours are Tuesday to Friday, 1-6 p.m., and Sunday, 2-5 p.m.
