June 23 – July 25
NAACO Gallery presents a series of new, layered, acrylic collages evolving from a spontaneous and unconscious convergence of several earlier experimental directions the artist had taken. This series is based on the artist’s intrigue with how we humans “read” various symbol systems, and how we use our imaginations to add and/or subtract in order to make sense of what we see.
An artist’s reception will take place on Thursday, June 23rd, 6-9 pm, held in conjunction with the DownStreet Art grand opening celebration.
NAACO Gallery (North Adams Artists’ Co-Op Gallery), 33 Main Street (corner of Main and Marshall Streets) in downtown North Adams. Hours: Mon, Wed-Fri, 11-6; Sat 10-6; Sun 10-4
