'Tilted Tectonics' to open
This September, Arts on Douglas Fine Art and Collectibles will be featuring Marc Barrett in an exhibition entitled "Tilted Tectonics."
In this collection, Mr. Barrett captures the beauty of steel, concrete, structure lines and mirrored glass in the modern architecture of downtown office buildings.
Mr. Barrett's paintings are illusions of space. The repetition of railings, windows, and balconies painted with a kaleidoscope of colors shows various dwellings that set up a constant visual rhythm.
An opening reception will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 1, at 123 Douglas St., New Smyrna Beach.
An artist's talk will be at 11 a.m. Friday, Sept. 21. Both events are free and open to the public.
The exhibition "Tilted Tectonics" will be on display until Sept. 29.
Works by Marc Barrett may be viewed online at www.artsondouglas.net.
