Ben Ortiz Gallery Talk

A Message From Catherine  
Tim Prentice has carefully unpacked and installed his sculptures, suspending them from the gallery ceiling and creating a sea of motion! Shiny, colorful, elegant, and whimsical - it's hard to know where to look first in this feast for the senses! Danielle Mailer's work has also arrived with its rich color and Matisse-like patterns. I await the opening next Thursday with great anticipation as a spectacular exhibit of color and contrast opens! Come share the magic!

Polarities Exhibition Opens with Artists' Reception

Wire TowerPolarities:
The Art of Tim Prentice and Danielle Mailer
The newest exhibition in the Whittemore Gallery brings together two artists' work in a dynamic display of dramatic contrast.  The harmonious and elegant sculptures of Tim Prentice are set beside the vividly colored and exuberant paintings of Danielle Mailer, creating interplay between their divergent approaches to art-making.  See more than 25 works - some that move, some that jump, and some that tell a story!
Join us for the Opening Reception and the opportunity for informal conversation with Danielle Mailer and Tim Prentice.
  Spring, Danielle Mailer
