I would love it if you could join me at the opening of my solo exhibit tonight at Galatea Fine Art in Boston. The opening reception is from 6-8 at 460B Harrison Avenue. There will be lots of great art, conversation, and refreshments. See you there!
The artwork for my solo show in June is complete. I am sooooo excited. I love the colors. This picture, of course, does not do the work justice. It’s the best shot I could manage with them all arranged on the floor. If you want to see the full effect you will need to come to Galatea Fine Art and check them out in person. The opening reception is June 7th from 6-8. The address for the gallery is 460b Harrison Ave, Boston, 02118. Come on down, I would LOVE to see you!
It’s been a tough New England winter and we’ve all probably spent a lot of time indoors this week. That is, except for the time we’ve spent shoveling and clearing our driveways! It’s Friday and time to break that cabin fever by getting out to the city. Tonight is First Friday in Boston’s SOWA. Galatea Fine Art is having an opening reception for an exhibit featuring the work of George Shaw – “The Sentinel” and Dominick Takis – “Recent Paintings”. The reception is from 6-8. Come on down and view the work of these talented artists. While you’re there you can check out my piece, Winter Ascent: Map 1, that is on display in the member area. There are lots of galleries to explore so come out and have some fun!
It’s December and time for the Small Works Show at Galatea Fine Art. Come find that perfect piece of art to make someones Christmas extra special. I have three pieces on display and for sale: Summer Memory, La Famille, and Wax Tapestry. The show opened today but come join the fun at First Friday tomorrow when we will be having our opening reception. Join us for refreshments, lively conversation and beautiful art. Our reception is from 6-8 pm at 460B Harrison Ave in SOWA. Be there or be square!

Kathleen Hendrick of Southboro, MA, and Becky Kisabeth Gibbs of Wayland, MA, will be exhibiting their two-person show at Galatea Fine Art, Boston’s newest contemporary cooperative art gallery in the SOWA district February 4 to February 28, 2010.
Kathleen Hendrick’s complex, mixed media compositions explore the emotions originating from deep within the human psyche. She combines intricate drawings and abstracted forms to create dense and colorful images. She builds her collages with materials ranging from the exotic, such as fibrous Japanese rice paper, to common household resources. Layers are pressed with texture, printed, removed, painted, scratched away and sanded. These processes mirror how our own lives may be built up or worn away by the society in which we live. Hendrick’s recent work references the inner layers of the human psyche: what lies hidden, what is revealed, and the range of emotions found therein.
Becky Kisabeth Gibbs’ biomorphic abstract paintings suggest a vista of duality: imaginary or real? The works disrupt the experience of scale and space so as to create ambiguity: between large and small, microscopic or interstellar. Shapes within this abstract thought space can explode or implode. The first step of her process is at once controlled and uncertain: dropping India ink onto wet paper, washing it off, and repeating the process until the composition emerges. Gibbs’ paintings reveal her interest in scientific imagery, including the scanning electron microscope, photography from space, and naturally occurring patterns such as fractals. The imagery is referenced for its abstract qualities, and is compelling to the artist because it is not readily evident to the invisible eye without the use of technology, yet is underlying all of nature and its beauty.
Join us at Galatea Fine Art for our new exhibits opening tonight during SOWA First Friday. These exhibits will feature the work of Sean Palmatier, Wilson Hunt and Alice Shafer.
Friday January 8th, 6 to 8pm, 460 Harrison Avenue
