This week was the final step in the 2015 jury for new members at the Torpedo Factory!

There are 11 new members of the Torpedo Factory Artists’ Association, a group of local artists committed to exhibiting their work and process to the public. Becoming a member of the TFAA is the first step to leasing or sharing a studio space in the Factory. Congrats to all these artists on their remarkable achievement!

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.
