In the Black at Carrie Haddad Gallery
Even though income taxes are due by the end of their show, Carrie Haddad Gallery celebrates the lucky possibility of being IN THE BLACK by showcasing a selection of black painting, drawing, encaustics and sculpture.
Black, being the absence of color, has always had a dark and somewhat lonely connotation. Its absence should not be criticized but embraced since it presents other concepts that constitute a great work of art. With respects to intriguing subject matter, complex brushwork, striking contrasts, or a captivating treatment of a surface, the artists showing IN THE BLACK have all embraced the dark side in the hopes of encouraging their audience to look beyond the typical and seek the mysterious.
The exhibit opens this week and runs through April 15 with works by Joseph Maresca, Ralph Stout, Betsy Weis, Sarah Berney, Kris Perry, David Paulson, and Linda Cross. An opening reception for the artists will be held this Saturday, March 8 from 6 to 8pm. All are welcome.
