Dorothy Thayne: Presence
April 3 — May 17, 2015

A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Dorothy Thayne is an iconographer as well as a painter of figure and landscape. The works in this retrospective exhibition pose the question: How can the methods of making art express the artist’s conception of life as “an interrelationship between matter and spirit?” Ranging over a period of 40 years, Thayne’s paintings are personal images of the people and places that have been a part of her life and that have served as guides in her process of becoming.

Opening Reception:  Friday, April 10, 5 - 7 p.m.
