Adam Brent: Heroic Faces Art Exhibit Opening at Thompson Giroux Gallery

The next featured artist at the Thompson Giroux Gallery is Adam Brent, the sculptor and painter, with the exhibit, Adam Brent: Heroic Faces.

Adam Brent, Heroic Faces, 2018, Wood, plastic, paint, ceramic, linoleum tile, resin, 58” x 19” x 21”

Brent creates sculptures and paintings that fuse together new techniques with familiar forms to create something entirely new. “Heroic Faces” and the accompanying works employ colors and patterns inspired by mid 20th century classic porcelain figurines and a palette derived from a range of every day linoleum tile. Colors bleed together and penetrate through the plastic forms with sheen and a disco ball like refraction. The viewer will be impacted by the simultaneously buoyant and seemingly deflated objects, while also mining the notions of loneliness, self doubt, unfulfilled purpose and broad new possibilities. These expressive and meticulously crafted sculptures encourage us to look for meaning in entirely new forms and bodies unknown to the world.

DATES/TIMES:
Exhibit: May 12 – June 24, 2018
Opening reception Saturday May 12th from 4-6pm

Thursday – Monday 11am to 5pm, Friday 11am to 7pm.
Closed Tuesday & Wednesday.
Closed Memorial Day – Monday May 28th.

Art Exhibit – En Masse 2017 at Thompson Giroux Gallery, Chatham

En Masse is back at Thompson Giroux Gallery. This is the fourth year for the by-invitation-only, salon-style show featuring over 50 artists and an incredible range of affordable work–sculpture, glass art, oil paintings, collages and much much more.

The show includes many of TGG’s longtime gallery artists as well as a handful of artists who have never shown there before. For even more variety, two new size categories were added this year.

En Masse has become a favorite show for collectors and art enthusiasts. This exhibition encourages artists to take risks and try new things–many have created brand-new work especially for this event—as well as unlock the vault on some never-seen artworks.

Pieces are available on a cash-and-carry basis beginning the day after the opening, and the show is constantly changing as new pieces are added from the back room.

DATES/TIMES:
On view December 2, 2017 – January 7, 2018
Thursday – Monday 11am – 5pm
Friday 11am – 7pm
Closed Monday December 25th, and Monday January 1st 2018.
