Mixed media painting collection at Buster Levi Gallery
Barbara Smith Gioia will exhibit her latest mixed media paintings at Buster Levi Gallery, 121 Main St., Nov. 7–30.
These new works represent her continuing exploration of space relations among shifting planes and juxtapositions of fragmented line, color and shape. Her paintings incorporate a collage of cut and torn pieces of painted abstractions on paper, mono-type and silkscreen prints, as well as applications of charcoal and ink.
Though every painting is made up of dissonant parts, each work falls together into a cohesive whole, offering the viewer an entry for navigation, as these works continue to reveal themselves over time. The artist’s hand, evident in each painting, provides another perspective in which to approach the work.
An opening reception will be held Friday, Nov. 7, 6–8 p.m. For more information, visit busterlevigallery.com.
