Thursday night art in Fort Point
I love walking around the Fort Point neighborhood. The architecture is so interesting, there are always new things popping up, and it is a great place for art!
Tonight there are three exhibits hosting opening receptions in Fort Point. Jenifer Mumford’s work is featured at Made in Fort Point during the month of March, in a collection entitled “Seasonal Gleanings.” With a longstanding focus on landscape, Jenifer is especially interested capturing the feeling created by light and air. She lives in Fort Point, but spends much of her time in Maine, and the influence of that environment is apparent in her work, which includes oil, acrylic, and encaustic (wax) painting, as well as collage. If you haven’t been to Made in Fort Point yet, this is a great occasion to stop by and shop local! They sell paintings, jewelry, photography, clothing, cards and more, all made by local artists.
Also tonight, a reception at 35 Channel Center Street showcases the work of Jeffrey Heyne and Dorothea Van Camp. Heyne’s collection is entitled “Fascia,” in reference to the connective tissue that surrounds, links, and organizes all the parts of the body. This series of photography is based on a study of 19th century marble sculpture, the images of which are blurred or otherwise manipulated to explore the idealized human face. Also referencing the body, Dorothea Van Camp’s work combines technology and tactile methods. Drawings done within a computer program are printed onto panels and then oil-painted by hand.
A reception at Midway Studios tonight marks the opening of “Celebrating Women,” a collection of work celebrating International Women’s Month. Featuring a number of artists, the collection focuses on women and highlights their the courage, grace, and individuality.
So much to enjoy tonight in Fort Point – hope to see you there!
