Info

This year's Annual Maxwell Shepherd Memorial Arts Invitational Exhibition is "In the Thicket" by Susan Bogle Finnegan.  Finnegan's bold, often gestural depictions of winterberry bushes, pine trees and hydrangea, among other subjects, explore nature's entanglements up close. Working from memory, as if immersed in the growth, she employs paint to search out feeling and meaning in shapes, color, space and structure. 

Finnegan says that "the natural motifs contained in my work are central to the emotional realm of my life, a realm encompassing not only a sense of place but also one of history, abundance, loss and the cyclical rhythm of the seasons. My aim is to organize the 'sense of air,' structure, weight, surface, space and light within the subject. I am interested in how the sense or spirit of natural forms can be expressed, not so much literally, but rather lyrically and poetically."


Finnegan earned an MFA in Painting from the Hartford Art School at the University of Hartford. She teaches at the Hartford Art School and Trinity College.


Reception: Saturday, April 21, 6-9 p.m.  Prior to the reception at 5 p.m., Susan Bogle Finnegan is giving a gallery talk.   The reception including refreshments is free, and the public is warmly invited.  


The Maxwell Shepherd Memorial Arts Fund is having a Poetry Reading by Clare Rossini at the Gallery on Saturday, May 5 at 4 p.m.


Exhibt runs April 20 through May 20, Friday-Sunday.
