Works by Debbie Hesse of Branford and three other New England artists will be on show starting on Friday, March 1, as part of the Premiere 2013 Exhibition at Alexey von Schlippe Gallery of Art, in the Branford House Mansion on the University of Connecticut’s Avery Point campus in Groton.
On opening day, a reception will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. with music by the Bill Morrison & Kent Hewett Jazz duo. The exhibit will run until Sunday, April 14.
Hesse’s installation is called “A Parallel Guide to Seaweed.” She says it is “explores my ongoing interest in and connection to the sea. Borrowing from traditions of silhouette painting, flower pressing, travel logs, specimen collections, laboratory experiments, this ephemeral and process-generated work weaves together disparate elements into a new entity that examines ideas about the breakdown and regeneration of information.”
Other artists in the show are Ron Crusan of Ogunquit, Maine; Olivia McCullough of Providence; and Gabriel Warren of Wood River Junction, R.I. This is one of Warren’s works.
Gallery hours are Wednesday to Sunday, noon to 4 p.m. Admission is $3, members and students free.
