Bristol Library Exhibit Email Invitationjpeg.jpg
A Great Crowd at the Pawtucket Arts Collaborative  A great crowd of people await your arrival at "Faces & Figures”, opening this Thursday at the Pawtucket Arts Collaborative Mill Gallery. Some are clothed. Many are naked. Most stare at you. Some leer. One pleads. A few are withholding and stern. Others are vulnerable. Several scream. One looks away, another hides. Many sing. All intrigue. Four large-scale, blockbuster works act as pillars of the installation. They are Blue Baby by Mia Cross, Martha Susan by Bonnie Lee MacDonald, Susceptible by Amy Araujo, and Vision Distorted by Madolin Maxey. Each commands sphinx-like authority. Further treasures abound in this densely packed exhibit. In fact, there is not a single timid work to be seen. Each artist, of the 75 represented, has skin in the game. Reality TV, by Jacyln Tomasso, packs a deceptively pretty punch. Carolyn Kent's The Swede seduces. Gaia, cast bronze by Serena Bates, seems unearthed in Athens. Craig Masten's nude, Turning Away, is intimate. Marjorie Ball's Untitled portrait is beautiful, dark and brooding. As is Screen Door, a photographic work on glass by Al Weems. Allison Elia's Weathering, an earthenware figure of virtuosity, has great emotional impact. There are too many to name. One could easily spend two hours at this show. These are powerful works of art as well as psychological portraits of great humanity. Juror Robin Wiseman comments that Faces and Figures is "one of the strongest shows I have judged like this. It has great variety and overall quality work." Prices on works in the show range from steals to investments. Credit cards are welcome. Opening reception for Faces and Figures is this Thursday, September 28th, 5:30 - 7:30 pm all are welcome. There will be live music from Paul Williams and Becky Bates, refreshments, awards, ... and a great crowd. PAC Mill Gallery is located at 560 Mineral Spring Avenue, 1st floor, Pawtucket.
