Amanda Barrow: Shape Meditations and Recent Monotype Prints
October 1 - November 1, 2014
Above: "Green Spine", Monotype Print, 18 1/2" x 25 1/2"
Artist Amanda Barrow lays out a brightly intuitive show at Hope & Feathers Galley during the month of October. Monotype Prints and Chine-collé prints will be on display alongside a constellation / installation of wood “Shape Meditations”.
In her recent "Shape Meditations" series, Barrow observes the request of the wood, inspired by its ingrained pathways. Barrow contemplates each piece of wood before applying watercolor, oil pastel, and the flame of a candle. The result is an abstraction that reflects the artist's guided improvisations.
Join the artist and guests for a talk & reception on Saturday, October 18 where Barrow will discuss the works on display with artist Kim Carlino from 5-8pm. Also featured is an evening of music and art on Saturday November 1 at 4pm where Carl Clements (saxophone and flute) and Bob Weiner (percussion) will "Play to the Art ", improvising to the artwork seen on the walls. All events are free and open to the public. The artist’s talk and musical event are both supported by a grant from the Amherst Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Artists’ Talk & Reception: Saturday, October 18, 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
