AVA Gallery and Art Center is pleased to present three solo exhibitions featuring Margaret Jacobs: Kinship Compositions | Rebecca Lawrence Gallery Entry and Clifford B. West Gallery; Nancy Sepe: Something from Nothing | Elizabeth Rowland Mayor Gallery; Li Shen: The Enduring Book | E.N. Wennberg Gallery. These artists work in multiple materials and disciplines, with the common intention of using storytelling through objects they consider to be culturally or socially significant.
Christopher Volpe is an artist, writer, and educator. Volpe’s paintings approach nature less as a visual motif than as a site of introspection and metaphor for intangible feeling and ideas. His murky, atmospheric landscapes and tar paintings often wrestle with ideas of the sublime and the power of the natural world. His work is shown nationally and held in the permanent collections of Smith College and the Whistler House Museum as well as in numerous private collections.
