MAC to open two new exhibits Feb. 13
Marion — The Marion Art Center is opening two new gallery exhibits on Feb. 13.
Under the supervision of art teacher Erin Kirk, the art students at Sippican School will exhibit a collection of works in the Patsy Francis Gallery from Feb. 13 to March 11. The show features the art of Sippican School students and will include several works from each grade level, representing various subjects and mediums.
There will be an opening reception at the MAC for the students and their parents after school on Feb. 13 from 3:30-5:30 p.m.
Running through the same dates, artist Remmi Franklin will exhibit her works, Aerials and Abstracts, in the Cecil Clark Davis Gallery. An opening reception honoring Franklin will be held on Feb. 13 from 6-8 p.m.
Franklin is a graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art. She began experimenting during her college years with images that played one color against another.
“I am fascinated by the way the human eye is trained by nature to see in a certain manner,” she said. “Using contrasting plays of color and shape, I have sought to challenge those expectations and to induce the view to stretch their perceptions.”
Franklin uses colors, shapes, layers and textures to combine her signature style with her love of the land and sea.
