Robert Greene’s solo exhibit: Frenetic Composure

MAC Spotlights Robert Greene’s Intriguing Work by Karen Barthelson

Robert Greene’s solo exhibit , Frenetic Composure, represents his interest in the figure and is inspired by as he states, “…the activity of the human mind…” and “…deals primarily with the human condition…”

What drew me to Robert’s work and what I found so surprising is how his pieces, while made of sticks of wood, manage to have an organic feel to them, particularly the figures. The figure stands still while the wood pieces forming the figure appear to be moving in various directions, giving it a frantic energy.

Robert lives in Ledyard, Connecticut and currently teaches at Eastern Connecticut State University, Willimantic, CT where he received his undergraduate degree in sculpture in 2006. He went on to earn his MFA in sculpture at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in North Dartmouth, MA in 2010, and stayed to teach in the 3D department for two years until 2012.

Robert has been gaining some recognition exhibiting mostly in Connecticut and Massachusetts. He has won awards, has works in many private collections and was mentioned in a Boston Globe article “Stand Out Students” in 2013.

While active with his own work at his Ledyard studio and at the Noank Foundry, Robert also enjoys teaching. He explained “…everybody has the creative potential; there is nothing more rewarding than seeing a student’s excitement when they discover exactly what they can make with their own hands…”.

Rob’s solo sculpture exhibition Frenetic Composure reception is January 16 from 5:30-7:30 at the Mystic Arts Center.

“Metanoia” by Richard Harden at the Clare Gallery

 

Richard Harden painting

The Clare Gallery’s exhibition, Metanoia, is free and open to the public and extends from March 20 – May 4, 2014.
 A reception and artist lecture will be held on April 24th from 5:30–7:30 p.m. At the reception, artist Richard Harden will discuss his undying search for universal meaning and imagery in the struggles and resurrection of the human condition.

The title of the exhibition, Metanoia, refers to a transformative change of heart. The term’s origin is Greek, from “metanoiein,” meaning to change one’s mind, or repent. Transformation has always been primary to the conceptual nature of Harden’s work, and his paintings allow us to reflect on our lives and the lives of others.

In this series, Harden explores flowers and hair in varied states of binding and unbinding. There are reflected surfaces along with abstracted space; fragile beauty irradiated by dramatic explosions. The colors are intensely saturated, as well as deeply dark, yielding the juxtaposition of opposing emotion.

Please enjoy the great article in the Hartford Courant here.

The Clare Gallery is housed in the Franciscan Center for Urban Ministry at 285 Church Street. The Center is part of St. Patrick – St. Anthony Church, a vibrant and active downtown faith community. Free parking is available directly across from the church, and the facility is handicapped accessible. More information may be found the Clare Gallery website.

Professor Nancy Wynn curated this exhibition for the Clare Gallery in Hartford, Connecticut. She is also Assistant Professor of Digital Art and Design.
