Library Art Gallery at the Main Library
Artwork by Mary Bruns
July 14 thru September 3, 2015
I am an artist using split imagery as a means of expression. The activity of one side of the painting or drawing is filled with the thoughts, activities and memories which best describe the separate and solo image whose full frontal image is juxtaposed next to it or adjoining descriptive object. I call my painting “collective realism” as it is a chief means of visual energy to satisfy and explain a situation, a life, an encounter or human dilemma, the same way a theater visit gives explanations and insights.
I have exhibited in several cities in the United States for over forty years and am included in the permanent collection of art at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Atlanta, Georgia. I now live in Cave Creek, Arizona . I have articles of recognition from the City of Los Angeles for outstanding citizenship and activities enhancing the community, better known as the “Cross Pollination Project”. I have Merit in Exhibition recognition given to me by the Long Beach Arts, which is an exhibition facility in Long Beach, California.
Library Art Gallery at the Main Library is located inside the Main Library lobby.
