'Continuum' illustrates humankind's presence on Earth
Published 12:33 pm, Saturday, August 16, 2014
An artist skilled in multiple mediums and disciplines, New Canaan resident Cynthia MacCollum presents "Continuum," an exhibition of collagraph prints, which opens at New Canaan Library's H. Pelham Curtis Gallery on Saturday, Aug. 23, and runs through Oct. 5.
An opening reception will take place Aug. 23 from 5 to 7 p.m.
"Continuum" offers a pictorial exploration of life on the planet and illustrates how humankind's presence on the Earth is actually only a blip on the evolutionary scale.
The time line, inspired by the artist's children and their many social studies projects over the years, balances physically and visually time against imagery. Amid the beauty, there is a hint of darkness: the threat humankind poses to itself and to all existence.
MacCollum is a painter, printmaker and designer who lives and works in New Canaan. A member of the Silvermine Guild of Artists, MacCollum was included in the First Street Gallery National Juried Exhibit, curated by Donald Kuspit, in New York in 2013, among many other institutional and gallery shows.
