The Pace of Nature
Allison Coelho Picone
Artist’s reception: Friday, September 9, 7:00 to 9:00 PM
On view through January 25, 2017
In her mixed-media paintings, Picone works to unite aesthetics, science, and spirituality. She is particularly influenced by artists who take on light as a subject of inquiry itself, such as Turner and Monet. Picone begins by collaging water- and digitally-manipulated photos onto a canvas, and then applies acrylic paint, pencil and ink to elucidate the underlying image.
While she originally painted in a more representative style, she now uses various mediums and techniques to explore the peaceful and restorative power yielded by nature. This series, The Pace of Nature, speaks to the innate goodness of all living things.
The artist’s reception is open and free to all, and takes place in conjunction with the ArtsWorcester Annual Meeting and the opening of Material Needs.
This exhibit is on view through December 21, closed during the holidays and New Years, then open again until the end of January. Gallery hours are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, 12:00-4:00PM, or by appointment.
