Join us for an evening conversation with a group of four talented artists as they discuss their original works of fine art featured in the exhibition Tracks and Echoes at DZINE Gallery. Artists Paule Dubois Dupuis, Laura Hapka, Melissa Parhm and Victoria Welling will share the methods and inspirations behind their works that include painting on canvas, silverpoint on panel, resin work and mixed media.
Our Artists in Conversation series strives to build community and open a dialogue between artists and with the public through curated talks in our gallery.
Curated by Philip Bewley, the Tracks and Echoes exhibition explores visual, temporal, and spatial dimensions using line and repetition in works of fine art. An additional theme reflects the timing of the show from winter to spring and the moods of these seasons found in the poetry of classic Japanese haiku, where the words "tracks” and "echoes" could be “kigo” or seasonal words. In this tradition, winter is a subject of memory; of things stripped to their elements, and an expression of an exquisite, if spare, beauty. The show progresses from the quiet, yet intense beauty of winter, to more polychrome works that suggest the stirrings of spring and the eternal cycle of renewal.
Tracks and Echoes is on view at DZINE Gallery through April 2018.
Reception starts at 5:30 PM, followed by a discussion at 6 PM.
Prosecco will be served.
