“Fluid and Motion” Don Fitzpatrick’s Pendulums
December 4th – 31st.
Reception December 18, 11 am – 1 pm
Crowell Gallery at the Moore Free Library
23 West Street, Newfane, VT
Don Fitzpatrick and his pendulum drawings will be returning to the Crowell gallery this December. Don will be showing new works incorporating harmonograms using fluid art techniques he has been experimenting with over the last two years. “The machines I used to generate the harmonograms for the new works focused on using the three pendulum rotary harmonograph, and a compound pendulum that swings from the rafters of my barn using a container of dripping liquid acrylic paint as the pendulum bob I will have another two pendulum lateral harmonograph as part of the exhibit, and will be bringing the larger 3 pendulum rotary just for the reception.”
Several mediums are in play including paper marbling, alcohol inks and yupo paper, fluid acrylic paint, epoxy resin, and gel block monotype prints. The images are dynamic, dimensional, abstract and encapsulate movement. The gallery hosts an artist reception on Saturday, December 18th between 11 am and 1 pm during which Don will be available to discuss and demonstrate the origin and features of this creative medium.
Admission to the exhibit is free.
