Pattern and Form
September 21, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until October 12, 2019
Join us for food, music and art during downtown Maynard’s Artsnight on Saturday, September 7. Gallery Seven presents Pattern and Form, an exhibit by artists Betsy J. Constantine and Carol Rissman of Bedford. Carol Rissman is a Resident Artist at Harvard University and her love of textures and patterns in nature can readily be seen throughout her work. She first creates handmade ceramic tiles and then uses an array of techniques such as printing, painting, impressing objects, and carving to achieve her artistic vision. Rissman utilizes a color palette of terra cotta, white, and black to subtly intertwine abstract designs along with depictions of nature to produce pieces of work that are both serene and meditative.
Constantine folds and shapes canvas into sinuous, evocative abstract forms, which are stiffened, painted with acrylics, and mounted on wood panels. While the interplay of light and shadow across these sculptures creates changing patterns, there remains an underlying sense of form and harmony.
