The UConn Stamford Art Gallery Board is pleased to announce the opening of its newest exhibit by artist Marcia Santore, entitled "Pattern in Motion"

Exhibition runs from October 30 through November 30

Pattern in Motion is a series of paintings manifested in a variety of painting media: some in oil, some in acrylic, some on loose canvas, some on traditionally stretched canvas, some on canvas board, some with collaged elements such as recycled sewing pattern tissue paper or handmade paper. Balancing on that almost indefinable point between recognizable subject matter and complete abstraction, these paintings use pattern in a new way—not as repetitive marks that emphasize the surface of an object, but in a nonrepetitive, evocative mode in which the patterns evolve, change, move, dance to discover the shapes they create. The result can be ambiguous, with emotional resonance of motion, stillness, and intensity. The viewer is invited to linger, to follow the lines where they lead, as the shape unfolds from their labyrinthine paths.
