The Imagined & Invented Figure at Melanie Carr Gallery
in Essex, Connecticut from June 23 through July 23

Melanie Carr Gallery
Jennifer Knaus, "Peony Dress," 24" x 18"

Starting June 23, Melanie Carr Gallery will be showing "The Imagined & Invented Figure." The month long exhibition features the work of three New England based artists: Aris Moore, Jennifer Knaus and Jennifer McCandless. The artists have created exciting two and three dimensional work that is both fantastical and surrealist in subject. Aris Moore will be presenting drawings that examine the space between childhood and adulthood and put focus on the mouths of the figures, emphasizing the mouth's ability to convey expression. Jennifer Knaus's work consists of paintings and drawings that are both beautiful and absurd, depicting women dressed in plant life in the style of 17th century still lifes. Jennifer McCandless will be showing her ceramic sculptures, which are anatomically exaggerated according to the most significant aspects of the individual's behavior and physique. "The Imagined & Invented Figure" is intended to work in accordance with Melanie Carr Gallery's mission to promote contemporary art to a wide audience, and the variety of striking pieces in the exhibition will no doubt do just that. There will be an opening reception for "The Imagined & Invented Figure" on Saturday, June 23 from 5:00 p. m.⎻7:00 p. m. Melanie Carr Gallery is located at 1 North Main Street #10 in Essex, Connecticut and is open Friday⎻Saturday 12:00 p. m.⎻5:00 p. m. and Sunday 12:00 p. m.⎻4:00 p. m. or by appointment.
