Art in Your Space
September at Milford’s ARTery Gallery features an exhibition of the works of two exciting and vastly different artists. Laura Dudes, with her multi-layered, dimensional images, creates works of high-intensity color with which she aims to create an experience of joy. Kate Horan’s artwork, semiabstract and mostly figurative, aims through color, line and form to create visual meaning that she hopes will make the viewer think.
As a way to illustrate the divergent aesthetic of the two artists, each has agreed to create in her own style a work based on the same photograph of a dilapidated old barn in a gone-to-seed landscape. The paintings will hang on either side of the enlarged photograph displayed in the central window of the gallery.
The exhibition, titled “Art in Your Space” to emphasize the importance of art in your own environment, will open Thursday, September 12, and run through Monday, October 7. A reception, open to the public, will be held the evening of Saturday, September 14, from 6 to 9 pm. This is a chance to meet the artists and the rest of the co-op artist members, while sipping wine and sampling the many goodies offered for free.
