Published DateMEREDITH — The Meredith Public Library is pleased to announce an exhibit of paintings and assemblages by Christina Smith-Krause.
This exhibit will be on view throughout the library, May 2-June 21.
"All-of-a-Piece: Present Day Assemblages..Paintings from Years Past" represents the artist's recent work in the realm of wood and ceramic assemblages, as well as a sampling of her paintings done over the last forty years. The artist has studied at DeCordova Museum School, Mass College of Art, privately with Brenda Lowen-Siegel, and in classes with watercolorist Carleton Plummer, is a past recipient of The Boston Globe Scholastic Art Award and numerous regional awards.
Her formal education in philosophy and religious studies--demonstrating an abiding interest in spirituality, is often reflected in her work; along with a sense of playfulness and whimsy. Inspired by the monochromatic wood sculptures of artist Louise Nevelson, as well as by a love of antiques, Smith-Krause combines old ceramic figurines--often broken and/or devalued, with old wooden pieces to make her assemblages
. The library is open Tuesday-Thursday from 9 a.m.-8 p.m., Friday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m.-2 p.m.
