Bernard Mattox: Chasing the Thing: the River Fugue Series

Exhibition, September 8 – 29, 2018   
Opening Reception Saturday, September 8, 6 pm - 9 pm
Artist Talk, Saturday, September 29, 2 pm - 4 pm

Formally a sculptor, Bernard Maddox presents a stunning collection of painting of nature, furniture, animals, religious symbols, human forms and much more. His pieces are densely packed with figures materialized in vibrant earthy colors or quiet neutral grounds in graphite. The end result is a graceful yet powerful commentary on the basics of human experience.

Needing a break from sculpture, Mattox took up painting 15 years ago. Although he’d never had any formal painting lessons, Maddox as found his own way by incorporating painting, sculpture, ceramics and found objects, branches, salvage yards. Many oil paintings and graphite drawings are on his hand-built oak panels.

This exhibition is made possible through the generosity of our 2018 Season of Arts sponsors
