Art Exhibit Opening at Gallery 34, Marilyn Allen, Small Works


Date & Time: 
Oct 6 2017 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm

Opening on October 6, 2017, small works by Marilyn Allen at
Gallery 34 in Brattleboro.

 

This exhibit of paintings, collagraphs and prints highlight
certain bends in the road of Allen’s development as a painter. In between
larger exhibits of her oil paintings, she has experimented with different media
to explore a variety of forms, uses of color and also the power of black and
white. Most of these pieces are in a smaller format.

 

Drawing has always been an important root of her painting
practice.  The drawing does not determine
the composition of a piece, but it does offer an opportunity to explore the
spiritual power of line without recourse to the sensory impact of color. This
allows the composition to be internalized on a level that will be accessed in
the process of painting. 

 

Collagraphs add three dimensionality to the process of making
the plate.  The printing process can be
done in both color and black and white, creating an opportunity to see the
structure of the composition as it develops. The plate itself has layers of
texture that vary with the amount of ink used in the printing process.

 

Watercolor, encaustics and oil paints side-by-side offer a
unique opportunity for the viewer to choose the medium that resonates with her
own aesthetic.
