Exhibition - Paintings by Tisha Ferguson, Alice Thomas and Cin Kunz
Alice Thomas is a contemporary-conceptual artist of western Massachusetts. She has shown her work in Massachusetts and New York; recent venues include Smith College, Amherst College and the Stoneleigh-Burnham School. Her paintings in this exhibit are acrylic on canvas from both the Precarious and Coalesce series, including the painting that became the cover art for Silkworm 12: Survival, Annual Review of the Florence Poets Society, 2019 edition.
Tisha Ferguson‘s art education began at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Tufts University, and continued at Silvermine School Art, Haystack School of Craft, Penland School of Craft and, locally, Snow Farm. Her medium is fiber, mostly canvas, with textile paint and stitch. The process of making art is meditation, practice, and discovery.
This show is her first in Northampton, and she is grateful for the guidance and encouragement of Elizabeth Busch, artist and teacher, and for the camaraderie and inspiration of fellow artists and friends.
Cin Kunz is an interdisciplinary artist based in Northampton, MA. Her newest paintings present a visual reaction to the conflict between the symbiotic foundation of the natural world and the chaotic expansion of exploitive human activity. She examines the tension found between forms, the use of line as points of contact and meaning, and the influence of one boundary, one direction, one action upon another.
Cin has recently exhibited at Westfield State University Arno Maris Gallery, Greenfield Community College South Gallery, Massachusetts Statehouse Senate Conference Chambers, #Local Gallery, Artspace, Arts Night Out Northampton, MAP Gallery, and at open studios in Western Massachusetts.
