A Determined Line brings together five artists whose diverse mediums, methods of working and artistic output mesh and complement to create a synergistic exhibition. Representing drawing, painting, sculpture, and installation, artists Heather Bentz, Alyn Carlson, Teresa Cole, Isabel Mattia, and Alia Pialtos share their conceptual interpretation and representation of line. Whether it be drawn, scraped, manufactured or a thought process, line is inherent in their work.
A Determined Line further expands this notion, and represents the artists’ ability to bring clarity to what is often hidden inside’the behind-the-scenes thinking that occurs during making. It speaks to what’s thought about and considered and then becomes part of the work in the process. This hidden aspect requires push, an emotional, unseen and intangible ability to see an idea through to completion. While the materials and end result are the physical manifestation of the process, content is embedded within.
An opening reception will take place on Saturday, April 16th from Noon – 3:00 p.m. The public is cordially invited. Admission is free.
