Eternal Whispers, an exhibition of paintings by Petrea Noyes of Brooks, and relief carvings by Lynne Joddrell Baggett of Steuben, will be on view at the Harlow Gallery in April 2010. The work in this exhibit capture both artists’ connections to their past, evoking memories that are communicated through photo-based artwork and letterforms.
The show will run from April 2-24, 2010, with an opening celebration on Friday, April 2, 5 to 8 p.m. The public is invited to meet the artists on opening night; refreshments will be served.
Noyes’s paintings are mixed-media creations, from acrylic to encaustic, which explores concepts of family, memory, and constructed narrative. The works in this series were originally inspired by photographs in a 100-year old family album inherited from her Norwegian grandmother.
Baggett’s cast gypsum and hand carved reliefs are inspired by early hand-carved letterforms found on gravestones in Maine coastal cemeteries and the British Isles.
Exhibitions at the Harlow Gallery are always free and open to the public.
The Harlow connects art, artists and community.
