Renee Balfour: Nature Unbound Through April 3rd at Amy Kaslow Gallery

In the Galleries

Sculptures as statements of architecture’s past and present

Review by Mark Jenkins

                                                    Detail of Her Dream, Cherry, 51” x 12”


A painter turned woodworker, Renee Balfour makes sculptures that emulate natural forms, not architectural ones. That doesn’t mean that the 11 pieces in “Nature Unbound,” her Amy Kaslow Gallery show, are rough and craggy. The sinuous shapes are artfully shaped and smoothly polished, and fitted together in ways that emphasize the artist’s control over her material.

Earlier this month at Amy Kaslow Gallery, Renee Balfour spoke to a full house about her process. She detailed how she selects the wood, her sculpting technique, and shared insights into her work. Watch the recording to learn more about the artist and Nature Unbound.

Abstractions by Anne Marchand on view thru May 15

At Sacred Heart University’s Discovery Science Center

Abstractions: Anne Marchand, is opened to the public in the STEAM gallery of the SHU’s Discovery Science Center in Bridgeport, CT. The exhibition, which features bold, colorful, large-scale abstract paintings by renowned artist Anne Marchand, remains on display through May 15, 2022.

Inspired by the Hubble Space Telescope photographs, Anne Marchand’s work is an exploration of the surprisingly colorful and frequently fluid-like state of the universe. Her mixed media pieces combine texture, color, and negative space to convey the dichotomy between the chaos of entropy and cohesion of nature.

“Space, color and mystery are calling cards to begin the work of layering materials on canvas,” said Marchand. “Moving with both conscious and spontaneous actions, I combine themes of spirit and matter. My choice of materials conveys transparent layers and depth of meaning reflecting the mysteries of creation and destruction. The painting process is metaphor for patterns emerging in nature and from invisible forces. I am drawn to images that open the viewer to questions about personal experience, consciousness and transformation.”

The Sacred Heart University’s Discovery Science Center & Planetarium is an interactive science center in Bridgeport, Connecticut, that serves as both a tourist destination and an educational resource for area families, schools, and other groups. 

Discovery Science Center & Planetarium is open to the public 7 days a week. The hours are Monday through Thursday, 10:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m., and on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
