BIG ARTS is closing out its fine arts season with two shows on display through March 22.

The Phillips Gallery is hosting “Lifecycles,” the works of Sue Pink, and the Founders Gallery features “Homage to the Square” an open juried show featuring artists from around the country.

An artists receptions will be held on March 2 at 5:30 p.m. with wine and hors d’oeuvres provided.

In “Lifecycles,” Pink explores her distinct style and how reflections on life impact her work. Working in the abstract manner has allowed her to emotionally tie her work to the viewer. Pink begins each work with spontaneity and immediate content, relating reflections of past experiences and acquaintances. Color and texture are major elements in her work, along with her signature muted pallet.

“Fine arts is a corner stone of BIG ARTS’ core mission and this year we really focused on bringing in world class artists,” Executive Director Lee Ellen Harder said. “Having Sue close out the season really punctuates an incredible line up of artists that we have had to pleasure to work with.”

“Homage to the Square” features works that are restricted to the b-by-8 square canvas. Displayed in a grid, each work is different from the next in medium, subject matter and style. The open juried show received over 100 submissions from artists all over the country.

“The response we had to this show was really incredible,” Gallery Manager Lauren Huff said. “This is going to be a diverse show in terms of style and medium that will feature something for everyone.”
