"Play Along", a mixed media piece by Barbara Thomas
A new art exhibition, "A Mother and Daughter's Art," will be on display this month at the Educational Resources Center (ERC).
The exhibition features the work of quilt and doll artist Barbara Thomas and painter Vivian Pitman.
Barbara Thomas has spent much of her life with a thimble on her finger. Since patterns made no sense to her, she always made things "freestyle." Thomas, who puts the puzzle together in her head, makes story quilts and dolls of every style color and nationality.
Vivian Pitman paints her neighborhood on Cleveland Avenue and is lovingly anti-romantic. Painting in acrylics, she enumerates every brick on a barbershop's façade and each shape in the security gate protecting a mission church. Pitman copies the graphics and graffiti with fascination--the wall of a whole building covered with surreal creatures in brilliant colors comes across like a deep-city art-zoo, a work of wonder and joy. Pitman does this with the triangulation of the powers of eye and vision.
ERC Director Bruce Massis invites you to "come and wander your way through the ERC and take advantage of this wonderful and sumptuous exhibition."The show is on display in the ERC galleries through July.
