Artwalk Gallery at the Hartford Public Library presents:
WOOD. / WORD.
March 17-April 30, 2017
Michael Sweeney and Rafael Osés
Opening Reception: Friday, March 17, 6 pm
Michael Sweeney’s body of work the books of things we do not know examines the book as a symbol and prompts consideration of a centuries-old technology that remains an elegant vehicle for exploring one's curiosity.
Rafael Osés's small word paintings — everyday or esoteric words and phrases, utilizing geometric shapes and simple color symbolism — encourage viewers to consider both the meaning and visual attributes of language.
Sweeney’s carved books cannot be opened and perused, and Osés’ punchy little paintings make their statements blankly. Books and the language they contain are picked apart, examined, and reformatted; this exhibition presents paintings to be pored over and books that cannot be read.
10 am - 8 pm

Transitioning from Begging Bowls to Offering Bowls provides insight into “the other side of the coin.” Traditionally, Offering Bowls are used in Buddhist practice. They are filled with water— initially considered to be plentiful and free—and are symbols of generosity. Ann felt it fitting to paint this series of bowls with watercolor.

The work of Liz Alpert Fay, while exactingly crafted, pushes the boundaries of hooking by making it fine art. The artist will sit for months with an idea before beginning a new piece, thinking and feeling it through so that it will convey a message. Her work preserves something of the past as it also calls our attention to more contemporary concerns.
