Features works by Rebecca Darlington and Jane Marcy
Color Compass, a gallery show by Rebecca Darlington and Jane Marcy, will open with an artists’ reception on First Friday, June 5, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Gallery 66 NY, at 66 Main St. The show will be on view from June 5 to 28. The gallery is open every Thursday through Sunday, noon until 6 p.m.
Hudson Valley artist Darlington’s practice dissects notions of belonging, culture, identity, decoration and production by distilling these elements to their essence. Her ecological-topography work echoes human relations and presents simple linked figures in elegant arrangements. Her paintings, installations and sculptures all examine the multiple connections that form a landscape in people’s lives.
Marcy’s visual compass points to the spirit of land and water and to the underlying mystery of nature. Her images are empty of human presence and yet inspire longing for communion. The textural and soft painterly quality of her photographs evoke a place in between reality and dreams. Many of her images were photographed here in the Hudson Valley.
Gallery C will feature Dawn Weygant in Going Places. Weygant is an artist attending the Kansas City Art Institute and currently interning with Darlington. This work is an exploratory combination of her painting and drawing skills. Going Places refers directly to the journey of the artist’s life and the new opportunities that humans all must face.
Bob Madden’s In the Natural World exhibits in the Sculpture Garden. Madden’s work has been previously exhibited indoors. In larger two-dimensional pieces inspired by nature from granite and marble, his new works have been created specifically for outdoors.
