Join the MAC this Saturday, September 25th, from 6:00-8:00pm for a hybrid opening reception of LIGHT in-person at the MAC or live-streamed on Zoom. Conversations with artists begin at 6:30. The exhibit speaks to the theme of Light through diverse materials and content. It features work by five artists new to MAC alongside longtime MAC gallery artists and includes Aimee Marcinko’s multi-sensory interactive installation.
Aimee Marcinko is a ceramic artist who recently completed a short-term residency at the Cobb Mountain Art and Ecology Project. Her multi-sensory installation is created with translucent porcelain, LED lights, and sound sensors to produce an otherworldly experience. In discussing her work Marcinko says, “My sculptural forms and functional vessels are inspired by illusion as a form of communication from nature. They reference ambiguous biological life, unveiling hidden patterns of intelligent communication. The work raises questions about the innate connections between human perception and the natural environment in a world where communication has become vital for survival.”
The opening reception will be hosted by MAC Co-curator Nicola Chipps, a former Art and Design Consultant at Ærena Galleries in the Napa Valley. “We are thrilled about the new work, new artists, and the addition of an interactive installation in the small gallery”, said Chipps.
The public is invited to the reception at 6pm at MAC. One can also attend virtually via Zoom. Visit www.middletownartcenter.org for a link. The event will also be livestreamed on Facebook from MAC’s page.
