TRURO – An exhibit kicking off early next month will feature a series of encaustic and acrylic paintings.
Judy Arsenault’s ‘WildWood’ exhibit will showcase her exploration of the woodland thicket in a series of paintings.
While much of the source material for her work comes from plein-air painting excursions and years of observation of her rural environment, the abstract work alludes to deeper unseen landscapes. To the artist, the thicket is a place of dense texture and flickering light and shadow, a wilderness of refuge from the chaos of modern life.
There will be a free opening reception at Visual Voice Fine Art Gallery on April 5, 7-9 p.m., with live music and refreshments. The exhibit continues until May 10 at the gallery on King Street.
Arsenault will be on hand at the gallery at 2 p.m. on April 26 for an encaustic demonstration, free to the public.
