The Chocolate Church Arts Center gallery in Bath will feature artists Jennifer Goldfinger and Kathryn Geismar in an exhibition titled “Transformation / Identity,” with an opening event at the CCAC on Friday October 8 at 5:30 pm.
The show discusses memory and identity using oils and mixed media. This particular couple of artists promises to provoke thought, reflection and powerful emotion.
The fine art of Jennifer Goldfinger (Portland) has been exhibited across the United States and is collected internationally. Her art can be found at the Rice / Polak Gallery in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Goldfinger is one of the artists featured in the book “Encaustic Art of the Twenty-First Century”. Goldfinger is also an author and illustrator of children’s books and is published by Harper Collins, Little Brown, Houghton Mifflin and Scholastic.
Kathryn Geismar is an artist and psychologist who lives and works in Somerville, Massachusetts. His interest in identity and inner harmony permeates his professional life in both fields. Geismar’s work explores the complex and often fragmentary nature of identity through portraits and abstract collages. A recent series portrays teenagers between the ages of 14 and 21, claiming identity in an era when binary definitions of self no longer make much sense. Geismar recently exhibited his work at the Bromfield Gallery in Boston, the Schultz Gallery in Cambridge, and the Inside Out Gallery in Somerville.
