Today I attended the artists' reception for The Art Group. First prize went to Charles Kartsonis of Lynn, Massachusetts for his collage (pictured above) titled "Valerie's Got a Gun." Valerie Solanas, a feminist writer, gained noteriety for shooting artist Andy Warhol in 1968.
Above is an installation shot. Sanbornville artist Dawn Rancourt's assemblage "The Future is Back" attracted a lot of attention, as did Norman Royle's mixed media "A Garden Palette".Pictured above is Mabel Doyle's oil painting titled "Autumn Leaves. And the watercolor below titled "Homage to Malevich" was done by West Newfield artist Peter Abate. Peter organized the show. Thanks for all of your hard work, Peter! There are 35 pieces in all. I wish more of my photos came out but it was a difficult assignment to shoot with interior lights and windows reflecting off of the picture glass! So you will have to visit the Gafney Library in Sanbornville to see all these innovative works. "Constantly Risking Absurdity In The Realm of Abstraction" will be on display through December 5th.
