Translations, featuring the works of regional artists Beth Humphrey, Stephen Niccolls, Victoria Palermo, Stacy Petty, and Anthony Ruscitto. An artists’ reception will be held at ACG from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, February 7, 2020, and the public is invited to attend.
Translations attempts to explore how artists, approaching their mediums and subjects with similar methods and processes, create such vastly varying and sometimes abstracted works from what they observe and experience in the natural world. As humans and not machines, repetitive actions and regular processes result in pieces that may be similar but never quite the same. Perceptions of reality and nature are translated into fragmented shapes, linear geometry and repeated forms, warping our sense of mundane routine.
