Still Life and From Life – Act II
Paintings by Deena Hunkler-Sanks and Sculptures by Francesca Di Lorenzo Dates: Wednesday, July 5 through Sunday, August 6, 2017 Meet-The-Artists Reception: Saturday, July 15, 2017 – 1:00-4:00 pm
Still Life and From Life– Act II has artists Deena Hunkler-Sanks and Francesca Di Lorenzo teaming up again to show the contrast presented by Deena’s “Still Life” oil paintings and Francesca’s “From Life” sculptures. The contrasting forms of artwork presented in this show reflect each artist’s interpretation of what makes “life” a joy to paint and to sculpt.
Deena Hunkler-Sanks – Deena collects memories and tells stories weaving together bits and pieces of peoples’ lives to present a rendition of their story captured in her paintings. Old photographs, keepsakes, and memorabilia are included in her still life scenes. A glance shows the beauty of a time past… a closer look tells the story.
Francesca Di Lorenzo – Francesca’s “From Life” sculptures are created with clay using live models. The nuances of the human figure are captured in her traditional sculptural style. Her sculptures celebrate the beauty and differences of life as depicted in her interpretation of the female and male forms.
