12:12: Approaching Light – Paintings by Virginia Sharkey
In September Partners Gallery is exhibiting the work of Virginia Sharkey in a show called 12:12: Approaching Light.
The subject of Virginia Sharkey’s large-scale abstract paintings is time; a presentation most specifically of a series of tone poems to noon and midnight meant to convey, in vivid color and simple line, the energy and feeling of these opposite 12’s. The subjects are mystery, radiance, surprise and the search for perfection. A re-reading of Dante’s Divine Comedy and his three stages of the soul’s progress towards heaven inspired, in paint and collage, the large “Commedia.”
There is a Second Saturday Meet the Artist on September 10, from 5:00 to 7:00 PM.
Hours are Thursday through Monday 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.
