De Barro - Recent Ceramics by Michael Boroniec

De Barro New Works by MICHAEL BORONIEC Artswalk Review by Art Indie...The “De Barro” show was a welcomed challenge for the hard-working sculptor/painter as he illustrated to my colleagues and I how a curved, closed cylindrical shape was carried throughout the sculpture pieces in various stylized appearances to provide unity to the show. The same shape is hinted at in the mixed-media canvases, but more importantly, providing unity of the exhibit, is the fact that these works... [more]

The Art Soldier Takes on BP at Ferrin Gallery  
Posted 6/18/10 Michael Boroniec, the sculptor we reported about in April (“Portrait of the Pittsfield Artist As A Young Man”), wasn’t scheduled to have another show at the Ferrin Gallery so soon.
