Monochrome
October 31 through December 6, 2014
Exhibition Preview: Thursday, October 30, 5:30-7:30 p.m. »

Monochrome is the use of a single color in a work of art. This seemingly simple process introduces many challenges for the artist. For the photographer, it requires an entirely new way of seeing. For example, the colors red and green when translated into a monochromatic image look almost exactly the same because of their position in the color spectrum. For the painter, variations of one color give an image form. It is a much more difficult task than simply adding a new color. For the sculptor, three dimensional shapes are vital to the final piece. The way light curves around a shape on a block of white marble gives it dimension. The challenge is to control those shapes from all viewing angles.

This exhibition demonstrates how 14 Palm Beach County artists have mastered this process in their own medium. Artists on display are Vincent Cacace, Joel Cohen, Misoo Filan, Mark Forman, Stephen Futej, Jacek Gancarz, William Halliday, Mimi Langlois, Kandy Lopez, Sally Ordile, Michael Price, Scherer & Ouporov, Thomas L Tribby and Harvey Zipkin.

Dolores KiriaconSolo Exhibitions

October 18 through November 15

Dolores Kiriacon
From life to the inevitable decline of nature, Dolores Kiriacon photographs flowers, leaves and other natural forms throughout their life cycle. Hailing from Parsons School of Design in New York City, she has worked in the arts her entire life, from printmaking to bronze sculpting to architectural design, Kiriacon has currently settled on photography as her preferred medium. "My work is about seeing - seeing things like they haven't been seen before," she states. Working with lilies, dried leaves and various other dried fauna she finds along her walks, Kiriacon chronicles their life journey using a stark black background and a reflective surface that transforms these natural objects into a new life allowing the viewer to appreciate them in a new and different way. www.doloreskiriacon.com

 

Patricia MaguirePatricia Maguire
As Patricia Maguire sees it: Art is nature as seen through the filter of emotions. Growing up in big cities in South America, she was surrounded by museums and other cultural enticements, Maguire later escaped to more natural landscapes from where she draws her painterly inspiration today. Maguire is involved in multiple arts organizations in Palm Beach County, has exhibited internationally and has been featured in national books and magazines. When not on location, she paints out of her studio in Delray Beach and currently teaches all media painting at the Delray Center for the Arts. www.patimaguire.com
