Cold Spring First Friday reception 6 – 9 p.m.
From June 7 through June 30, Gallery 66 NY, located at 66 Main St., Cold Spring, will display three exhibits, featuring the artwork of Rebecca Darlington, Frederick Wardy and Edward Yashin. A reception will be held Friday, June 7, from 6 to 9 p.m. to welcome the artists and their work.
In an exhibition of 20 clear resin cast sculpture bodices with bronze cast inserts, Darlington’s Birthing Beauty examines the working woman’s act of balancing sexuality, nurturing and professional choices. Each bodice displays objects representing different aspects of a woman’s life, including trees, hearts, babies and dancers holding hands. Darlington aims to communicate the hidden wars of overworked, anxious mothers, questioning if society offers these women the support they need in order to thrive.
Wardy’s Color and Line in Motion features abstract expressionist gouache on paper and acrylic on canvas works. The combination of large strokes, thinner gestural lines and substantial use of primaries radiates strong colors and balances harmony with chaos. Bound together with brass wire, a sculpture made from twigs and plaster employs natural curves and angles that create a variety of intricate shapes.
The same technique Ukrainian architect Yashin uses when representing buildings infiltrates his artwork in Beauty and Symmetry. Yashin allows himself to take risks with his artwork, enhancing lines with the illusion of scaffolding in order to create dramatic effects. Mysterious figures created by light and shades communicate the atmosphere of the city in which the building is located.
