Beyond Visible Light
Photographs of Bruce Magnuson
Through June 27 in the Meeting Room Gallery
The photographs of Chelmsford resident Bruce Magnuson will be on exhibit in the Library Meeting Room Gallery from May 4 - June 27. There will be a reception on June 15th 1-3 p.m. where the artist will be available to talk about his work and explain his various photographic techniques.
Magnuson says of his work: Beyond Visible Light is a photographic exploration of landscape through black and white infrared images. Adding a wrinkle to the traditional black and white look, infrared imbues the images with an ethereal quality. With subject matter ranging across New England, Wisconsin, New York, the American Southwest and Paris I have been able to use the qualities and demands of black and white infrared to create images that are familiar, but also inviting a deeper look.
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.
