A Place of Wonder
SLATE presents a two-person show on exhibit featuring Kim Manfredi and Peter St. Lawrence, March 03 through April 23.
A Place of Wonder showcases contemporary abstract paintings and sculptures that quietly invite the viewer to explore magical places and wondrous forms. Both Kim Manfredi and Peter St. Lawrence’s earliest work focused more on the human form. As their work became increasingly abstract, both artists found a freedom in relying on their intuition, rather than intention. By loosing themselves in the material and the process of creating, they discovered a way of seeing that is just beyond knowing. This degree of ambiguity is what engages the viewer. The works hint at the human experience, yet invite the beholder go somewhere completely new.
Opening Reception with a gallery walkthrough with Kim Manfredi, Friday, March 3, 6–8pm
Artist Talk with Peter St. Lawrence, Saturday, March 18, 3pm
Soprano Ann Moss performs a concert at the gallery, in response to the artwork, Friday, April 28, 6:30pm
