Repetition is the key in Richard Fraumeni’s graphic patterns painted on large canvases.
Fraumeni’s “Abstracts” is on display at Red Door Gallery through Monday, April 1.
Also on exhibition through March is “Spheres of Influence” by Mira Hecht at Page Bond Gallery.
These recent works by Hecht focus on the circle and its properties.
“Inspired by my own contemplative practice and glimpses of perfection within the mind’s eye,” said the artist in a statement to the gallery, “each painting is meant to be a small gesture of exaltation, pointing to joy, connection and wholeness.”
Additionally, Page Bond Gallery celebrates Women’s History Month with “Building Upon the Past,” a group exhibition of 10 female artists, including April Dauscha, Andrea Donnelly, Meredith Lachlin, Mary Ivy Martin, Ginger Metzger, Maria Stabio, Kaleena Stasiak, Sayaka Suzuki, Erin Lynn Welsh and Augusta Wilson.
The group exhibition includes video work by Dauscha, photographs by Martin and fine arts by Stasiak.
All of the works in the exhibit illustrate the various activities, roles and symbols that women in previous generations have been forced to overcome.“These include symbols of traditional feminine domesticity, motherhood, marriage and the female body; the male gaze; and the reclaiming of conventionally feminine art forms such as quilting, embroidery and needlework,” said the gallery in a press release of the exhibit.
