Of Two Minds: Artists Who Do More Than One of a Kind at browngrotta arts in Wilton, CT Highlights International Contemporary Artists

WILTON, Conn., April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- This Spring's exhibition at browngrotta arts in Wilton, Connecticut, Of Two Minds: Artists Who Do More Than One of a Kind, features artists who work in more than one medium, work with more than one material or more than one technique. On exhibit will be sculptures, paintings, objects and wall works by 25 international artists. The exhibition, at browngrotta arts, 276 Ridgefield Road, Wilton, Connecticut 06897, begins with an Artist's Reception and Opening from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 26th and continues from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. for the next eight days. A full-color catalog will accompany the exhibition with an essay by Elisabeth Agro, Nancy M. McNeil Associate Curator of American Modern and Contemporary Crafts and Decorative Arts, Philadelphia Museum of Art.

The artists in Of Two Minds: Artists Who Do More Than One of a Kind show remarkable range, working in different mediums, mastering different techniques and materials and creating complementary or contrasting works along the way. "Painters paint, sculptors sculpt, but the textile and mixed media artists in Of Two Minds are less restricted by material or technique," explains browngrotta arts' co-curator, Tom Grotta. "Represented in major museums, these artists weave, plait, knit, crochet, stitch and felt and also carve, construct, draw, dye, weld and paint." Each artist in Of Two Minds has provided at least two contrasting works — several will exhibit more than two. Marian Bijlenga, of the Netherlands, has sent a stitched work of horsehair, one of fish scales, a wall assemblage of glass "doodles" resulting from her glass experiments and also two glass sculptures. Stephanie Jacques of Belgium will exhibit clay-coated and textile-edged woven baskets, with wood-worked bases along with a stitched photographic print. Hideho Tanaka of Japan combines a large patched linen weaving with sculptures of torched paper and steel and Lawrence LaBianca of California exhibits interactive works that combine glassblowing, prints, wood and metal work.

For 26 years, browngrotta arts has promoted international contemporary art textiles, mixed media and dimensional art in exhibitions, at art fairs, in catalogs and online.
