February 5- March 5 : OPENING RECEPTION FRIDAY 7 FEBRUARY.
Art exhibition of paintings and sculpture inspired by Byzantine frescos in Puglia,Italy. Come get warm in February, enjoy conversations with Boston Artists and see art from the sunny heel of the Italian boot.
Christine Palamidessi is showing large monotypes and sculptural talismans inspired by a treasure trove of Byzantine wall paintings that she discovered in out-of-the-way chapels, crypts and Crusader hideaways in Salento, Italy. You can see them during the month of February at Galatea Fine Art in Boston’s SOWA district.
“When I made this series, I followed the traditional image-text pattern that Byzantine painters used a thousand years ago. During that era pictures of the divine were linear and flat and stable; in candlelight they could flicker, move and fascinate.”
The art on exhibit, like Palamidessi's other work, address the conundrum we all experience--where we came from and where we are now--both personally, ancestrally and culturally.
Gallery hours Wendsday through Sunday 12- 5 PM and by appointment.
450 Harrison Ave Boston. In the SOWA district.
