Name: Be Bold by MAG and Intricacies Opening Reception: August 16th 6-8 pm
Date: August 16, 2019
Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM CDT
The Freeport Art Museum will be opening two new exhibitions on Friday, August 16th starting at 6 p.m. Intricacies will be on display in Newell Gallery while Be Bold will be on display in Ferguson Gallery. Intricacies is an exhibition of work by three artists who employ highly detailed techniques that demand a great amount of time, effort, and careful construction. Betsy Youngquist creates fantastical beaded sculptures, Lisa Goesling draws highly detailed botanical drawings, and Paul Pinzarrone uses special computer programs to layer photographs and digitally created patterns and colors together. Their individual processes and materials result in an intense sensory experience for the viewer. The Freeport Art Museum is proud to partner with the Momentum Art Guild to present the Be Bold exhibition. Each year, the Momentum Art Guild selects a new theme to challenge its members artistically and encourage them to create new works of art. This year's theme explores the adventurous spirit found within every artist and asked the Guild members to push the boundaries of their creativity and take risks whether through color, scale, pattern, and/or subject matter. Member's Preview: Gallery Talk with the Artists from 5:15 - 6:00 p.m. on Aug. 16th Before the opening reception, Betsy Youngquist, Paul Pinzarrone, Lisa Goesling, and Ann Haag and Ellie Bartels from the Momentum Art Guild will briefly introduce their artwork and artistic concepts for the Intricacies and Be Bold exhibitions. This is a members only event.
