The Bristol Art Museum announces its next exhibit, Breadth & Depth: Earth, Water, Air, Fire, a national juried exhibit that challenges conventional boundaries through which 51 artists from 18 states, express ideas about the natural world. The exhibit will be open for viewing starting this Sunday, February 4, and will be through the end of March. Additionally, an Artist Reception is scheduled for Sunday, February 11 from 2 to 4pm.
Artwork in Breadth & Depth relates to one or more of the elemental themes of earth, water, air or fire that express the artists’ emotion and perception. Artists explore symbolism, textures, colors, and conceptual interpretations that evoke the essence of these elements.
“This exhibit ventures into the intricate interplay between the elemental forces of nature and the profound depths of human consciousness,” shared Mary Dondero, Curator and Museum Board Member. “Artists selected for this exhibit were challenged to push the limits of artistic expression and embrace the tactile experience. The result is a national exhibit of artists from around the country that explores the natural world."
The exhibit also features work by Stephanie Stroud in the Museum’s Brick Gallery. Complementing the primary exhibit, Stroud describes her work as “influenced by the variation in nature and landscape that New England offers.” She is an artist who works in fiber and felted wool.
Karen Drysdale Harris, a Jamaican-born watercolorist and oil painter based in Rhode Island, served as juror for the exhibit.
WHEN: Beginning Sunday, Feb. 4
WHERE: Bristol Art Museum, 10 Wardwell St., Bristol
