A Selection of Recent Work by
Christopher Engel

Strings is a selection of recent work by Christopher Engel.
The recurrent theme of all humans connected to those who have gone before echoes throughout the series, as in all of Engel’s work. Engel explains, “There are points in life when all lines come together. There is an alignment of thoughts and ideas. All voices resonate in unison, and that which travels within has the moment to be seen, heard or felt. We are surrounded by the remnants of all who came before; the energy leaving ‘strings’ that entangle into our lives.”

The title figurative work contains two figures holding the strings of puppets. The main figure is the Sutradhara, known as the “holder of strings.” Traditionally, this is the central character in Sanskrit theater and also the head of the troupe. The symbolic and metaphysical interpretations resound. The seminal abstract work, “Strings,” has ties to Engel’s abstract series “Alchemy” and “Through the Lines.” The work references calligraphy, graffiti, marks on walls, tar patches, ripples in water and, seemingly, all are bound together through the motion and energy of the entire composition.

A reception for the show will be held on Saturday, July 8, from 5-6:30 PM.

Upcoming Exhibitions

July 27 – August 17, 2017

The Artwork of
Barbara Groot & Thomas Condon

Reception: Saturday, July 29, 5-6:30 PM

We’re pleased to present the artwork of local artists Barbara Groot and Thomas Condon.

There is an elegance in Barbara Groot’s sweeping line work, reminiscent of musical phrasing. Her brushstrokes appear as if from modern music scoring which channels emotional lightness and spatial freeness, uplifting the viewer. Her boundaries are loose or nonexistent, contributing to a breathless freedom.

The focus of Thomas Condon’s work reflects the New England town throughout the seasons. There is a sense of alienation, a moodiness. His streets are devoid of human activity. Condon is especially interested in the play of shadow and light in his work.

A reception for the show will be held on Saturday, July 29, from 5-6:30 PM.

More upcoming exhibition dates coming soon…
