A ‘Heart’ for mid-winter

Jan 17, 2013
Wesley Reddick’s “Many Are the Wounds to a Sensitive Soul” is made from paper, lead, wood and nails.

Belfast — Åarhus Gallery, 50 Main St., will warm up mid-winter with a show titled “Heart,” which run from Thursday, Jan. 31, through Sunday, Feb. 24. The public is invited to an opening reception Friday. Feb. 1, from 5 to 8 p.m.

With Valentine’s Day thoughtfully placed in the heart of February, we tend to associate “heart” with warmth, coziness and sweets in a heart-shaped bright red box. However, some of the artists showing their work for the “Heart” show are thinking outside the box of chocolates and delving into aspects of the heart that are not so sweet.

Featured artists include Kenny Cole, Al Crichton, Maryjean Crowe, Mike Fletcher, J.T. Gibson, Sarah Hewitt, Kevin Johnson, Mark Kelly, Karen MacDonald, Richard Mann, Cathy Melio, Tom O’Donovan, Joan Proudman, Abbie Read, Wesley Reddick, Willy Reddick, Mike Silverton and Simon van der Ven.

Åarhus Gallery’s winter hours, through May, will be Thursdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. For more information, call 338-0001 or visit aarhusgallery.com, where a slideshow of the current works is available.

J.T. Gibson asks “Will a Stent Prevent a Broken Heart?” with aluminum, rivets and neoprene mesh.
