Realms: Works of Mary Terrizzi, Naya Bricher, and Scott Bricher

Realms is an unfurling record of the parallel journeys of this family of artists. The format of the unfurling "exquisite scroll" brings a fusion of the narrative of the traditional horizontal hand scroll with the drawing exercise called "exquisite corpse," where the outcome is uncertain. Come and see what results from the intersecting lives of one family of artists.
Mary Terrizzi is a multi-disciplinary artist, designer and creative director. Mary has had over 30 years of experience as a designer of publications for White Flower Farm, The Taunton Press, and The Children's Television Workshop.
Naya Bricher is an emerging artist and member of both the Kent Art Association and Washington Art Association. She shows at juried exhibitions throughout the country including  the 63rd Art of the Northeast at Silvermine Arts Center where she received the Prutting and Co. Award for Mixed Media.
Scott Bricher has created artwork for exhiibition, portrait commissions, magazine and advertising clients. He recently completed two portrait commissions for The Gunnery in Washington, CT. His 2012 exhibition, Wunderkammer, was highlighted in the New York Times.

Opening: Sunday, January 19  3:00 - 5:00 PM

Artists' Talk at 3:30 PM followed by reception.

Exhibit runs from January 19 to March 29, 2014

Taking the Long View

"And now let us believe in the long year that is given to us new, untouched, full of things that have never been."

It's all I have to bring today

It's all I have to bring today-- 
This, and my heart beside-- 
This, and my heart, and all the fields-- 
And all the meadows wide-- 
Be sure you count--should I forget 
Some one the sum could tell-- 
This, and my heart, and all the Bees 
Which in the Clover dwell.
~Emily Dickinson
