Village Art Circle Opening of Show by Pappalardo, Goldberg and LaMantia @ Village Art Circle
Sep 30 @ 6:00 pm – Oct 26 @ 2:00 pm

Jillian Goldberg, Susan LaMantia and Constance Pappalardo: new works

An exhibition of new work by abstract expressionist painters Jillian Goldberg, Susan LaMantia and Constance Pappalardo, opens at the Village Art Circle gallery in downtown Cary, NC, on Friday September 30th. The show will run for a month, closing on October 26th. The theme of this show, “Komorebi,”  is a Japanese word that means, “Sunlight filtering through leaves.” The artists have interpreted this idea working independently of each other, each using four, 36×36 inch canvases. Each artist has a distinct, personal style: Pappalardo uses watercolors on canvas in a bold, minimalist style with saturated colors; LaMantia’s work is intensely energetic with thickly layered impasto applied by hand; Goldberg’s work for the show reflects places and seasons with bright color and surface texture.

Enjoy refreshments and live music by Charlie Shiel and Lecia Ciccone-Roberts. Gallery hours are Wed-Sat. 11-5 or by appointment.Komorebi_postcard_Sept2016
