Barbara Sapienza and Susan Shaddick
Dolphin Gallery Exhibit
Opening Reception Saturday, February 6, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Exhibit remains through March 2
For Barbara Sapienza, creating a painting is about movement that communicates a deeper understanding for the viewer. She says, “Each brush stroke is an expression of being in the present moment.” One stroke informs the next until the final product appears, an image that bonds the viewer and artist in a single experience.
The Japanese concept of wabi-sabi is a focus for the exhibition by artist Susan Shaddick at the Dolphin Gallery, opening in February 2016. The term wabi-sabi developed from Buddhism and essentially states that nothing is perfect, nothing is complete and nothing is permanent. As a long-time student of meditation and an artist who has worked with natural materials and minimal processes, Susan feels that this concept describes her work most clearly.
