Organic Forms and Pulsating Lines: Works of Barbara & Julian Stanczak

Thursday, November 17, 2016 - 5:00pm
Cummings Gallery

Barbara Stanczak focused for the past 30 years on carving in wood and stone. Her sculptures reveal nature’s secrets, which she releases in intuitive forms of intimacy and imagination. Julian Stanczak’s intense curiosity about color perception led him to make color his intense pursuit for the past 60 years. The pioneering spirit of the Op Art movement, he fills his canvasses with complex color relationships that transform paint and geometric shapes into an experience of the intangible and mysterious. An exhibit of their works titled “Organic Forms and Pulsating Lines” will run from Nov. 14 through Dec. 18 in Cummings Gallery. A free public reception is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 17, from 5 to 7 p.m. Cummings Gallery is located in the lobby of the Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center and is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and weekends from 2 to 5 p.m. The gallery is closed on holidays and during academic breaks.
