Artist Alliance Exhibit Delves Into ‘Intrusion Or Intimacy’

Medium: Zebra Alabaster The Rockaway Artists Alliance begins its newest exhibition, entitled “Intrusion or Intimacy: A Juried Exhibition Exploring the Concept of Openings, Holes and Orifices,” on Saturday, March 11.

There will be a reception for the show on Sunday, March 12 from 1 to 3 p.m. Entertainment and refreshments will be presented for all.

The showcase, which attracted submissions from as far away as Montana, Maryland, Utah and New Jersey, as well as the Rockaway and Five Towns area, will feature works in watercolor, oils, acrylics, alabaster, photography and digital compilation. Each artist has attempted to frame a new view of an opening and the opening itself. By seeing the opening a tunnel, a window, an archwayand the space beyond the exhibition asks the question: it is an intrusion to privacy or an invitation to intimacy? Is it a void, as in an absence of something? Or is it an opening to new discoveries? A featured artist, Martha Killian, lets the viewer experience emptiness in a new way, with “Tunnel Vision” and “Abandoned;” Mary Mundy’s “Through The Arch” gives a glimpse of a vibrant world just beyond the corner of mystery. “I look for abstract qualities within and around an objecta smaller part that has its own story, but still contains the essence of the whole,” said artist Diane J. Ali.
