As Valentine’s Day approaches, Mamaroneck Artists Guild invites more than 25 artists to reflect on what truly matters, and what touches their hearts, in Heart of the Matter. Exhibiting artists created works in photography, painting, printmaking, mixed-media, fiber and sculpture to depict their personal and diverse interpretations of what “heart of the matter” means to them. For instance, artist Dorothy Cancellieri represents the experience of love in her painting, which depicts a couple kissing in the moonlight; artist Alison Nicholls, who lived in Botswana and Zimbabwe, reflects on her heartfelt interest in Africa, wildlife and conversation; sculptor Grace Fraioli will display her clay lizard pots, which are inspired by colors and textures of the earth and sky that have made an impression in her heart; and artist Marion Schneider will share an abstract interpretation of the exhibition theme, featuring a heart literally at the center of her painting. The exhibition is on view through February 25. For more info, visit: mamaroneckartistsguild.org.
