Ben FarrellBen Farrell: Wall Hangings!

In his new exhibition, Wall Hangings, musician, installation artist, and fine finishing painter, Ben Farrell displays a collection of mixed-mBen Farrelledia pieces. 

Wall Hangings will be coming to Mulberry Art Studios this June for a month long run in the main gallery. The public is invited to come out and meet this inventive local artist and view his new body of work at a First Friday Opening Reception on June 3 from 5-9.

In Wall Hangings, the pieces are by-products or left-overs re-purposedor up-cycled to create an asthetically-interesting exposition with topics that range wildly.

 

"I am always exploring pushing new ideas by purposely limiting my boundaries to what materials are readily available" says Farrell.

Reina 76 Artist Reina WoodenReina 76 Artist: Fashion Hell

Fashion Hell — an exhibition of Ephemeral fashion designed by Reina 76 Artist, consisting of ephemeral art pieces paired with burlap canvas art pieces.

Reina 76 Artist is Reina Wooden, a contemporary artist working out of Harrisburg. She has been exhibiting for most of the last decade, and has pieces in private collections in Paris, New York, and Philadelphia.

I set out to construct Conceptual art pieces that capture non-conventional themes and lifestyles and how it interacts with the Audience. It is a contemporary approach to what is exhibited and the individuals who influence it. I deconstruct commonly used idioms and colloquial phraseology. I prefer painting in Acrylic as it enables me to present the technique of Scumbling and Drip Painting. I incorporate man-made materials and found objects such as recycled canvas, cardboard and newspaper. It creates an inverse focal point. I create Ephemeral art on various forms of clothing. It makes the message kinetic and functional and upon further study, new areas of interest evolve, lending the work depth and mystique. My Artwork includes urban landscapes, geometrical flotsam, and monochromatic block lettering. Patterns found in my work are displayed from a 'Sinistrodextral' or Left to Right direction. The colors I enjoy painting with are Black, White and Red. The Color Black is the result of the absence of complete absorption of light. White is produced by the combination of all the colors of the Visible Spectrum. And Red is the color at the end of the Visible Spectrum, next to Orange and at the opposite end of Violet. All three components describe my inner energy as an Artist. The Conceptual Artists I admire the most are Sol Lewitt, Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Maria Abramovic and Francesca Woodman. ——— Reina 76 Artist
