New exhibit to open at ArtsWorcester gallery

Tuesday, August 07, 2012

 

Earth, Air, Fire, Water, an exhibition of works by Beth Neville, sponsored by ArtsWorcester, will open in the Hadley Building, 657 Main Street, Worcester, MA 01610, on Wednesday. The exhibit will run through December and is free and open to the public.

Inspired by Aristotle's cosmological theory of four elements, Neville's six large-scale acrylic paintings feature vast ocean waves, magnificent waterfalls, powerful windstorms and mystifying stone pillars. Bright colors and vibrant images depict spectacular events of our planet's creation and nature's diversity and eternal power.

In her commentary on the collection, Neville writes, “After 16 years of working with photomontage and wood sculptural constructions, I decided to return to painting and use nature as a source for metaphors… My interest in Earth, Air, Fire, Water is an outgrowth of my farm upbringing and our closeness to the forces of nature as they related to growth and destruction.”

Neville, whose work has appeared in more than 20 solo exhibitions and graced the cover of more than 20 books, also won first prize from ArtsWorcester for her sculpture “Gears” in 2008.

An artist reception will take place at the Hadley on Friday September 28, between 6-8 PM. This event, held in conjunction with fall exhibits at the Aurora, is also free and open to the public. Free parking is available in the paved lots between Ionic and Beacon Street, one block up from the Hadley and ArtsWorcester.

For more information, visit http://www.artsworcester.org, call 508-755-5142, or stop by Aurora Gallery at 660 Main Street in Worcester for more information.
