About the Exhibition
In the 18th and 19th century, Art Salons were the greatest annual or biannual art events in the Western world, celebrating the farthest advances in academia and the arts. The Alfa Art Gallery, in order to bridge talented and highly esteemed artists with the New Brunswick public, holds its own Art Salon exhibition biannually in the Spring and Fall/Winter. As the second of 2010, this New Brunswick Art Salon exhibition “Aftershock: Lines and Vibrations” closes Alfa’s successful year of promoting the arts.
The title of this exhibition “Aftershock: Lines and Vibrations” implies consequence in viewing the works of our three stylistically different artists. Though the works of Alexandra Pacula, Jen Mazza, and Marsha Goldberg emerge from different intentions. Their intense marks share a common ground in resonating lingering messages or sentiments into the viewers. Pacula’s work, containing blurred scenery simplified into humming lines, drugs the audience into becoming part of a night scene that references to excitement, opportunities, seduction, and anxiety. Mazza’s work, containing colorful explosions in an otherwise muted image, trembles with an aftertaste of alarm. Goldberg, with her untamed lines, brings a slow realization of an intangible and ineffable feeling. The debut of these three artists at the Alfa Art Gallery will be nothing less than an earthquake!
