Big Weekend

This Thursday through Sunday is packed with great holiday events at The Art League and The Torpedo Factory.

The December All-Media Membership show is up in The Art League Gallery, along with Virtue, Sin and the Balance Within, the December solo show from ceramic artist Carlos Beltran Baldiviezo. The artist explores the ancient tradition of balancing the tension between the Seven Deadly Sins and the Seven Heavenly Virtues. Each of the seven pairs of fourteen ceramic sculptures embodies a Sin and its corresponding Virtue. Some pieces are whimsical and playful, others serious and stoic, some humorous, obvious, or elusive.

Runs December 4, 2008 – January 5, 2009
Opening Reception:
Thursday, December 11: 6:30 – 8:00 pm

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
