ArtSlant - Recently added http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/show en-us 40 Roger Mudre - Heather Gaudio Fine Art - October 25th - November 29th <p><strong>Heather Gaudio Fine Art</strong> is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition <em>Roger Mudre: Full Circle, </em>on view from October 25 through November 29.&nbsp; This is Mudre&rsquo;s first solo exhibition at HGFA and will feature his paintings and works on paper.&nbsp; The public is invited to attend an opening reception for the artist to be held on Saturday, October 25<sup>th,</sup> from 1 to 4pm.</p> <p>Mudre&rsquo;s work explores the concept of infinity as it relates to the continuum in our every day life, from microcosms in cellular growth to grander celestial bodies that fill the universe.&nbsp; Whether seen or invisible to the naked eye, these forms inspire Mudre&rsquo;s imagination and he contains them in a square shape to suggest an equal perpetuity in all dimensions.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Applying metallic leaf to a prepared surface, Mudre layers his work with color glazes, adding and removing layers with brush, rags or scrapers to create aureoles, coils, halos and other similar forms, achieving a depth in tonality.&nbsp;&nbsp; The effects are beautifully luminous works that offer contemplative respites for the viewer.&nbsp;&nbsp; Although abstract in composition, these forms are grounded in familiar imagery found in nature, rendering an inspiring reference point to the imagination.</p> Wed, 29 Oct 2014 02:58:47 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Hooshang Khorasani - Attleboro Arts Museum - October 14th - November 1st <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="font-family: Times New Roman; font-size: medium;">A two-painting set of Hooshang's Khorasani's abstract works is being shown Oct. 14 to Oct. 30 in the Attleboro (Mass.)
