January 4, 2018 - January 31, 2018
Brooklin artist Tara Mason will exhibit recent works at the Blue Hill Public Library starting January 4th in a show titled “Object as Story.” The show will feature artworks made using found objects from many years of collecting items that are ocean-washed, dumped, or discarded. The public is invited to a reception on Saturday, January 6th from 5:30 to 7:30 PM.
Tara also incorporates crocheted fiber, wire, wood, glass, paint, and colored pencil into her pieces to create pleasing assemblages. Using her imagination and words or phrases, she gives them titles that evoke meaning and mystery.
Tara Mason has lived in Brooklin, Maine since 1984. Her artistic career has included painting, fiber arts, and design. About her artwork she offers, “Always returning to my inspiration from natural design and pattern, and using mediums that I love, the works on display incorporate my long-evolved aesthetic.” Tara also makes sculptural silk scarves and handmade cards that are sold locally.
The show will be in the library’s Britton Gallery and Roland Howard Room through the end of January, available for viewing during library hours subject to the Howard Room schedule. For more information contact the library at 374-5515.
