Art panel at The COMMA


Mon, Apr 15th 2024 11:45 am

The COMMA Fine Art Gallery will host a panel of artists on collage and altered materials as its next “CONVO @ The COMMA” event on Sunday, April 21.

The program will feature artists working in foraged, found and reclaimed materials for a conversation on their medium and practices, as part of their current show on view, “SALVAGE | SPLENDOR, Unnatural Nature.” “SALVAGE | SPLENDOR” combines the works of Dianne Baker and Sara Baker Michalak, two environmentally sensitive artists working in collage, printmaking and assemblage.

Baker Michalak will be joined in conversation by Max Collins, Parrish Gibbons, Gerald Mead, Lynn Northrop and Richard Rockford as they discuss “the joy of working with reclaimed materials, the environmental implications of art making, and how artists can respond to concerns of climate and conservation by use of the medium.

“The curators of The COMMA are proud to present their voices and perspectives on Earth Day.”

The public is invited to visit the gallery before the panel discussion at 1 p.m. and share how their view of the work is altered after the conversation. The gallery will be open from noon to 3 p.m.

“SALVAGE | SPLENDOR: Unnatural Nature” is on view through Friday, April 26.

The COMMA Fine Art Gallery is located at 17 Elm St., East Aurora. Gallery hours are noon to 3 p.m. Thursday through Sunday, and by appointment. Follow The COMMA on Instagram and Facebook at @thecommagallery for updates and announcements, or visit www.commafineart.com.
