DESCRIPTION

 

Now through May 31, 2013
Reception for the Artist ; Thursday, March 14, 6-8pm

This show spanning twenty years of painting encompasses four bodies of work by contemporary painter Tara Dixon, which include the “Lafayette Street Studio Collage” series, the “Icon” series, the “Into The Light” series and the “Heaven On Earth” series.

44 exquisite pieces combine materials as diverse as gold leaf, plaster, fabric, magazine transfers, beeswax and embroidery thread. As a painter/mixed media artist , Tara Dixon often weaves words and collage elements to create atmospheric experiences, reminders or mantras. In these works she draws from her fascination of how the world works, the passage of time and her love of color.

Throughoutl her life, her art has been a connection to joy and she is honored to give back to The City Of Joy  in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
