Michael V. Pascucci: Sculpture
The Arts Garage, A.C.
- Exhibition dates: May 4 - July 2
- Opening Reception: Second Friday,
Friday, May 12, 6:00 - 8:00 pm
Michael Pascucci works in a figurative abstract style that emphasizes visual metaphors relating to the human condition. He believes that his sculptures are essentially romantic because they metaphorically connect to core feelings and thus enhance an awareness of self.
There are times Art triggers our imagination and becoms a means for transcendental feelings aboutour universal connectedness. As a sculptor, I am inspired by the wonder and awe of how shapes and forms are assembled and integrated into the incredible well-structured and beautiful designs that we find in Nature. I endeavor to create objects that are beautiful and that appeal to our innate sense of beauty. Ultimately, we learn or feel from the works that there is more about being human than meets the eye.
— Michael V. Pascucci
Transform: Works by Ellen Hanauer
April 7 - June 25
Noyes Gallery II, The Arts Garage, A.C.
Opening Reception: Second Friday, Friday, April 14, 6 - 8pm
There are times in our lives when the floor drops unexpectedly from under out feet and propels us on a dark journey. This human condition of loss often feels surreal and affects each of us in profound and unexpected ways. This is a painful process, as we descend into denial, anger, negotiation and despair. We find ourselves adrift, our compasses malfunction, and we are left disoriented and despondent. Finally, there is acquiescence, the inflection point where healing commences.
This exhibition is an emotional recollection of my own transformation, which has taken me from the abyss to a place where potential is limitless. I have chosen to use fiber as my medium ,as it brings an unthreatening quality to this provocative and sometimes uncomfortable subject. Emerging from the darkness has helped me to see the possibilities that can only be discovered through the path of deconstruction and reconstruction.

Photography by David Woeller
February 9 - April 30, 2017
Advancements in digital imaging techniques have afforded me the tools and freedom to explore new directions in my artistic presentations. Sharing my vision and interpretation of a subject has always been a pleasure for me. Using archival inks, conservation grade papers, and matting, I present each image to be enjoyed for many years. Whether it is a realistic image or a hyper-realistic interpretation, my goal is to cause the viewer to stop, if only for a moment, to reflect or have an emotional response. If I can achieve that, I will be content in having realized my goal. - David Woeller
