What a feeling of freedom! Two Covid vaccine shots, a beautiful spring day and an opportunity to see, in person, inspiring works of art at the South Shore Art Center (SSAC). Hopefully, you will all be venturing out soon to share in the joy that art brings to our lives. Katherine French has selected 65 excellent works created in a wide variety of recognizable media, and some created in ways that will never be replicated. Subjects range from abstract to detailed realism, from joy to death.
“PIVOT,” a juried exhibition, was put together in a whirlwind fashion. Calls for art went out February 1 and the exhibit opened April 8, which must have set a record. Each accepted work of art is worthy of a written accolade and three themes stand out: Anxiety, Beauty and Nature.
