October Exhibit Openings
It’s All Fun and Games
Marvin Bachner: An Artist’s Retrospective
Two new exhibits opened at Arts Center East on Sunday, October 27. It’s All Fun and Games is one of ACE’s most eclectic juried exhibits. The exhibit features over fifty selected pieces, ranging from sculpture to photography to oil painting and clay work. Each piece uniquely celebrates fun, humor, nostalgia, or games, with, perhaps, a pinch of irony for good measure.
1st Place: No Place Like Home, pastel, by Karen Suponski
2nd Place: Summer Trouble, sculpture, by Randall Nelson
3rd Place: Bonding Day, acrylic, by Bernard Duffy
Honorable Mention: Falling to Pieces, acrylic, by Scott Rhoades
Honorable Mention: Day Sailing, photography, by Gene Suponski
Thanks to our exhibit jurors, Tao Chen and Steve Hamlin.
Marvin Bachner: An Artist’s Retrospective opened in the Eureka Gallery at Arts Center East, also on Sunday October 27. The exhibit features work spanning the career of Marvin Bachner and includes both painting and sculpture.
Says Bachner of his work, “upon my retirement, I thrust my whole self into creating art. My approach as been an experimentation with unusual materials such as circuit boards, styrofoam, and various other materials, to create relief sculpture. I also work with traditional materials, oils, watercolors, pastels, and acrylics.”
Both exhibits are on display at Arts Center East, Thursday–Sunday, 1:00–5:00pm, through November 24.
