BECOMING: Artistry in the Making

Martino Gallery, 2nd floor

Original Paintings and Drawings by Sandy Cohen. 

Opening Reception:  Thursday, May 14 | 5:30 - 7 pm

Works in this exhibit were inspired by observing artistry in the making. While seeds of artistry may sprout spontaneously, as when a child is first entranced by natural beauty or discovers joy in artful play, works of art involve effort.  In many modes - whether dance or carving, musicianship or painting - artistry develops through training and practice, often guided by strong cultural traditions.  Painters and sculptors, aiming to render beautiful form, have long depended on models to pose for them, a skill in itself.  These original paintings and drawings present a small sampling from observations of artistry emerging, developing, being enjoyed.
