Aviva and I decided to check out some shows at Bergomot Station – that’s an old warehouse area that’s been converted into a collection of art galleries. We saw three shows that stood out.
First, Aviva wanted to see the Irene Hardwicke Olivieri show – the work is wonderful, colorful, thoughtful. Much of the work is on wood – doors, windows, even a child’s headboard. Definitely magic realism; here’s the post card (I wish we could have afforded one of her pieces, they are brilliant):
We saw a show of Judith Mullen’s work – modern abstraction, I immediately saw references common to Aviva’s work so I wasn’t surprised she spent some time browsing.
Finally, the first gallery we went into had the work of Stephen Aldrich – he does collage from turn of the century prints without reproducing them. The work is amazing, technically its as close to flawless as I’ve seen, you have to look closely to see that they are really collage! And the form and structure of the work is also fabulous – again, the card:
And as always, a couple of other pictures I took while there – the funny one is the elephant in the pickup truck….
