Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of “Boldly Patterned and subtly Imagined: 22nd Annual Winter Group Show,” which will run November 30th to January 31st, 2014. An opening reception will take place Friday, December 6th from 5:30 – 7:30 pm. The exhibit features the work of Boyan Moskov and Carolyn Shattuck.
Printmaker, book artist, and painter Carolyn Shattuck “believes her work is the freedom to extrapolate ideas and motifs from many sources in order that they can cross-pollinate and exist as a whole. She says “ I hope to celebrate life in all its complexities while acknowledging the shadow on my left shoulder”.” Having lived in Montreal, Okinawa, and the Northeast, she has found inspiration in everything from New England tombstones, Chinese terracotta warriors, Japanese printmaking, and Puritan urns. Her experiences are translated into works in mixed media, using unique techniques such as drypoint and collage, or drawing and print assemblage in a three dimensional book art form.
New Hampshire based potter Boyan Moskov was born in Ruse, Bulgaria. His playful pottery uses bold patterns and colors to create abstract compositions. He was drawn to art from an early age; starting at Troyan Art School (Troyan, Bulgaria) in 1987, Boyan fed his passion and developed his techniques in painting, sculpture, drawing and ceramics. For many years following Troyan, he worked in many fashions from production ceramics to private art endeavors. He continued his education at the Sofia Art Academy (Sofia, Bulgaria), followed by his international debut working as a potter in Sweden.
The show also includes the work of notable artists Bonnie Acker, Elizabeth Allen, Steven Goodman, Catherine Hall, Don Hanson, Kelly Holt, Kathleen Kolb, David Maille, Virginia McNeice, Gail Salzman, Cameron Schmitz, Dianne Shullenberger, David Smith, Barbara Wagner, Dick Weis, and Nancy Weis.
