Paintings of Brittney Ciccone
July 1 - August 25 in the Meeting Room Gallery
Boston-based artist Brittney Ciccone exhibits her abstract figurative paintings in the library Meeting Room Gallery during the months of July and August.
Ciccone holds a BFA with a concentration in painting from the Fashion Institute of Technology, State University of New York. She says of her painting process:
I find drawing is a very important factor in my artistic process. I start each "faceless" series with closing my eyes and putting the charcoal to the surface and let my subconscious guide my hand across the canvas. From within these marks I find figures that I then paint with an expressive movement. I intentionally leave the charcoal marks from the drawings behind. I feel that they are needed to create the story in my paintings. I also leave most of the surface untouched to give the figures the space they need to stretch across the canvas.

Mary K. Mooney
Reincarnation of the Old
A Collection of Mixed Media Figurative Sculpture
On view now in the Library Solarium
Local artist Mary K. Mooney has been a member of the Art Space-Maynard community for twelve years. In addition to having a studio at Art Space-Maynard, Mary is also a member of the gallery committee and the Co-Chair of the outdoor sculpture exhibits at Art Space-Maynard. Mary has a background in Design, Painting and Sculpture.
The artist says of her work: Old found objects speak to me, and as I listen I feel they each tell me they have another purpose. This is what has influenced my current body of work, a collection of mixed media figurative sculpture. I rely on the influence of surrealism as a foundation for my work. My process is to let the objects inform the figure, which allows each piece to take on its own personality. I use a variety of materials in each sculpture and although each piece is different, the result is consistent, to give each piece a new life. By giving new life to these objects, I invite the viewer to see the ability to repurpose and recycle objects and to find their inner beauty.
