“BODY OF WORK IX” is Presented at Ashawagh Hall on June 29 & 30
“Body of Work IX” showcases the artistic activity of long time members of this fluid group of figurative artists. During the time we have shown together, we have bonded as a group creatively, as individuals working, showing and growing.
“Body of Work IX” presents artwork by Rosalind Brenner, Linda Capello, Michael Cardacino, Ellen Dooley, Anthony Lombardo, Phil Marco, Michael McDowell, Douglas Reina, Frank Sofo and Margaret Weissbach.
The exhibition opens at
and continues through Sunday, June 30. An Artist Reception will be held on June 29 from 5 to 8 p.m. Ashawagh Hall is located at 780 Springs Fireplace Rd, Springs, NY 11937.
Not every artist exhibits in every show. For “Body of Work IX,” the group is introducing a new artist who has not exhibited previously with the Body of Work artist collective.
While all the work in the exhibition is figurative, each artist presents a unique interpretation.
Doug Reina’s recent work involves painting the figure while exploring ideas about how to manipulate the treatment of the paint on the canvas surface.
“This treatment allows me to see more than an abstract painting and more than a figurative painting,” states Reina in his Artist Statement. “Instead, I see both, which I find interesting.”
