PRESS RELEASE

MARY LOU ALBERETTI
The Twain Shall Meet
September 6 - October 1, 2016
Opening reception Thursday, September 8th, from 5 - 8 PM.


Mixed media, oils, and ceramic reliefs comprise the works in Mary Lou Alberetti’s September show entitled The Twain Shall Meet. The artist uses architecture and architectural fragments - inspired by her travels and studies in Italy, Spain, France, Turkey and Morocco - as metaphors for the cultures as a whole. The distinct colors and motifs from these living, breathing cultures influence her works. From these often-ancient places, tradition, beauty, and the patina accrued by time become distilled as layered vignettes, delving into aesthetic and philosophical underpinnings of older civilizations and times.
