Spectrum: Aina Nergaard-Nammack Exhibition and Head On: Sculpture by Cori Beardsley will open Friday, Aug. 29 at the Rehoboth Art League in Henlopen Acres. Both exhibitions will run through Sunday, Sept. 28.
Of her work Nergaard-Nammack says, “I have to work actively in the field to abstract my comprehension of what I feel, and imagine forms and colors that will be in equilibrium on the canvas. My paintings are non representational. The important thing for me is to arrange these forms in the pictorial field to achieve a strong composition. I balance all relationships as they are developed and intuitively search for a complete image. My non representational forms will flow as part of a rhythmical interplay. The result is a vibrant, balanced composition. My art is doing.”
Spectrum will be in the Corkran Gallery. To learn more about the artist and her work go to www.nergaard-nammack.com.
Beardsley’s sculpture is driven by her love of the physical relationship with materials and the drama of something emerging in space. She works mostly in ceramics and much of her work explores the myriad mutations the human form can take. After earning her MFA from the New York Academy of Art, Beardsley has recently returned to the Eastern Shore of Maryland where she was born and raised, and teaches art at Salisbury University, and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. Her work will be featured in the Ventures Gallery. Go to www.corinnebeardsley.com.
The opening for both exhibitions will be Friday, Aug. 29 from 5 to 7 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
