“WORDPLAY”: KENNA DOERINGER, GWEN MANFRIN, AARON STANSBERRY
MARCH 2 – APRIL 2
FIRST FRIDAY RECEPTION MARCH 3, 5-8PM
In “Wordplay,” a juried show selected by writer and curator Terri Cohn, three mixed media artists create pieces that include words in their imagery. Each approaches the intertwining of image and text in a unique fashion.
Combining two passions of creating art and literature, Kenna Doeringer creates sculptural pieces, in one case a chess board, using text from Lewis Carroll, Charles Darwin and Dante. In watercolor and colored pencil works on panel, Gwen Manfrin depicts figures suspended in space, evoking the disorienting moments that force new leaps of faith. Aaron Stansberry creates abstract-calligraphic paintings by inscribing lyrics, poetry, quotes, and phrases into multiple layers of oil and cold wax, while using the canvas as a personal diary by recording thoughts and feelings as he works.
