A new exhibition will open with a reception on Saturday, June 4 from 2 to 5 p.m. Tangible Objects is an invitational group exhibition with a focus on the material nature of objects. The exhibition includes works in ceramic, fiber, paper, metal, mixed media, and oil paint. Artists featured in the exhibition include: Becca Barolli, Sue Blumendale, Christina Brinkman, Dave Dorsey, Peter Pincus, Anna Sprague, and Myung Urso.
Tangible Objects brings together artwork that crosses the boundaries between art, craft, and design. Some of the included artwork also uses new or different materials to make familiar forms: a metal scarf, a paper dress, brooches made of rice; this exhibition puts a spotlight on material and form.
Also happening from 2 to 5 p.m. on June 4
…there will be a special meet and greet event with Francie Marx in the Robert and Francie Marx Art Resource Library on the second floor. This will be an opportunity to see the current exhibition of paintings, etchings, and bronzes by Robert Ernst Marx in the library and also a chance to talk with Francie about Robert and his work. Exhibitions of Robert’s work rotate quarterly in the art resource library at Main Street Arts, which also houses 2,000 books on a variety of art subjects.
There are two additional events held in conjunction with the Tangible Objects exhibition. The first is a ceramics demo with Peter Pincus on Saturday, June 11 from 12 to 2 p.m. Peter will take the audience through his throwing process from start to finish. This event will be both a demonstration and an artist talk and Peter will talk about his recent move to working with dark clay on the wheel. There will be limited seating available for this FREE event, RSVP at MainStreetArtsCS.org. The second event is an online artist talk with the artists included in the exhibition. Tune in to the Main Street Arts Facebook page on Tuesday, July 12 at 5 p.m. to learn more about the artists and artwork in the exhibition.
