Gallery Director Sarah LoVasco presents the first annual "Director Presents" series in which guest artists, chosen by the Director, are brought in to exhibit at 222 Cabot Gallery. Artists whose work and/or practice can positively impact and inspire the Artists of 222 Cabot will be invited to exhibit.
"Before 12: Drawings and Sculpture by Elsa Gambale and Joshua Thissell" will present the artwork of two adolescent artists, each with a unique passion and outlook on their art practice. Gambale creates detailed drawings of animals in motion- quick, intense images that successfully capture their mid-stride motion. She found success in offering portraiture commissions of peoples' pets through her Facebook page, and is working toward continuing to exhibit her work.
Joshua Thissell creates masks and three-dimensional objects beyond the realm of many students who out-rank him in age. Having been raised within the walls of a hardware store, Thissell's toolbox is vast and his command and exploration of materials gives his work a professional, theatrical feel. Thissell has recently become very interested in 3D printing and the endless variety of materials sourced through the Internet.
