“Light on dark: exploring negative space”

Gallery 2, Feb 9-April 8

by Melissa Terszakowec

Community artist Melissa Terszakowec has on exhibit 3 paintings which focus on “negative” spaces and “positive” forms. 

The task she set herself with each of these works was to create a singular entity, not just a subject with a background, and through this balance offer a scene of serenity. Her method was to paint each canvas black, then add white to create the foundation of the spaces around and between, and lastly add the color.
