Exhibit: ‘The Beautiful And The Good’ at gallery406

09:00 am to 06:00 pm
gallery406 (116 W. 6th St, Ste. 110)
http://www.spectrumstudioinc.com/gallery406.htm

“The Beautiful And The Good”, an exhibit of paintings by Jennifer Mujezinovic, will be on display at gallery406 from April 5 until May 31. Gallery is open from 9 am to 6 pm, Monday through Friday.

“Beautiful”—together with “graceful” and “pretty,” or “sublime,” “marvelous,” “superb,” and similar expressions—is an adjective that we often employ to indicate something that we like. In this sense, it seems that what is beautiful is the same as what is good. In fact, in most historical periods there was a close link between the Beautiful and the Good. – from History of Beauty by Umberto Eco

Beauty does not always correspond to what we see superficially. Socrates was notoriously ugly, but was said to shine with an inner beauty, and Plato believed that the sight of the “senses” must be overcome by intellectual sight.

In Jennifer’s portraits, she is seeking an ideal beauty through a synthesis of a pleasing physical body, and a spirit that is good. This synthesis expresses a Psychological Beauty that harmonizes body and soul. Each one illuminating the other.

“Walk the Walk, Art Lives”: Paper Art Quilts by Mary Hambly
The art of Mary Hambly, founding member of the committee that started Gallery Walk, is honored with this exhibit of her work. The Paper Art Quilt is a joining of contemporary art and traditional craft, a blending of individual elements in such a way that the joining allows for a richer and more meaningful whole. In the creative process stenciled, marbled, printed, and over dyed papers are cut, pieced, and then stitched using a zig zag sewing machine. The resulting “quilt blocks” are then laid out in a composition, sometimes born out of the repeating pattern concept of traditional quilting, sometimes not. The “quilt” is then completed with a border, also of paper, and the result is a one of a kind image.
Exhibit runs until Thursday, July 25.

“Doing the Dance”: Woodcut prints by Dale Enochs
Sets of four woodcuts that when displayed together make a single composition or tetraptych. One tetraptych, Tantric Sideshow is based on a visit to Bhutan and is a reference to the elements Earth, Air, Fire and Water. A second tetraptych 21st Century Dance Cards is inspired by the Gulf Coast oil spill and also by environmental and war issues.
Exhibit runs until Thursday, July 25.

Monday-Saturday 10 am-5:30, closed Sunday
