"On Making Pictures" by Thom Egan

"On Making Pictures" by Thom Egan
Description:

“On Making Pictures”, an exhibit featuring wood block prints, lithographs, and colored low reliefs by Artist Thom Egan, will be on display at the Gallery at River Arts from January 21-April 19, 2019.

A Reception & Artist Talk will be held on Thursday, February 7, from 5-7pm, and will include a brief introduction by the Artist on three topics: Art & Craft -how they differ and where they overlap; how and why the work on display is made; and art and audience – why might these pictures matter to you. Opportunity for questions and discussion will follow. Free admission and refreshments, cash bar.

When describing his work, Egan says “A focus of my work is the simultaneously complex and unified character of nature. In making these pictures; physical properties (e.g. structure, density, temperature, etc.) are related by means of process (e.g. gradation, stratification, fragmentation, synchronization, etc.). These various components are then set in an archetype (e.g. a mountain, bindings, a gate, an egg, a column, etc.). The overall aim being to effect a harmonious, if uneasy, balance which is evocative of experience. In this way the paradox (i.e. the many, the one) approaches a resolution; such that whatever the complexities involved become unified and the image rings true.”

Gallery open Monday-Friday and Every 1st & 3rd Sunday from 9am-4pm. Call (802) 888-1261 or visit RiverArtsVT.org for more information.

Time: 1/21/19 9:00am - 4/19/19 5:00pm
