Dialogues – Gary Marsh and Donna Wallace-Cohen
New work by Gary Marsh (sculpture) and Donna Wallace-Cohen (painting)
Opening Events, Saturday, July 24:
* Art Talk, 4:00 – 5:00 pm
* Reception, 5:00 – 7:00 pm
* July 24 – September 5
In recognition of their artistic achievement, they were awarded this exhibition for winning first place in the 2020-2021 MarinMOCA Members’ exhibitions. Marsh’s sculptures and Wallace-Cohen’s paintings are informed by deeply personal experiences, resulting in an engaging dialogue between artist and medium.
Marsh creates organic forms using castings in hydrocal and non-shrink grout, making sculptures that appear both soft and hard, despite the rigidity of the material. Marsh says: “The work I created for this exhibition addresses the passing of time and the need to honor the physical and mental changes that inevitably require our acceptance and attention, no matter how difficult that task may be.”
Wallace-Cohen’s stunning paintings reflect her time spent among ancient Redwood trees. The artist states: “The woods give me the illusion of feeling wiser than I am. I hear the ancient voices of souls who once lived here–chanted, worked, danced–centuries before I was born.” Her paintings envelop and transport viewers to a quiet, meditative place.
An art talk will occur on Saturday, July 24 from 4-5pm. Join the artists in the Second Floor Gallery for an intimate exchange about their work and inspirations, followed by a reception from 5-7pm. Doors open at 4pm with limited capacity.
The exhibition runs through September 5 and is free to the public.
