Deliberate Apertures and Accidental Enclosures— a new art exhibit at the Library’s Art Gallery in Côte Saint-Luc

Abstract paintings of Montreal-based visual artist Antonietta Grassi will be on display at the Eleanor London Côte Saint-Luc Public Library Art Gallery from November 27 to January 25. 

Grassi will discuss her exhibit, called Deliberate Apertures and Accidental Enclosures, with the public during the Meet the Artist event on Thursday, November 27 at 7 pm. This event is free of charge. Light refreshments will be served.

Grassi says her exhibit features a questioning of both our physical and mental surroundings. This idea is reinforced in her following statement. ”My current series of paintings operates at the conjunction of abstraction and representation, furthering my ongoing investigations into the instabilities of compositional structure and architectural form as metaphors for psychological states, such as instability and loss,“ Grassi writes in her artist’s statement.

Grassi is a professional artist and professor in the Visual Arts Department at Dawson College in Montreal. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University and a Master’s of Fine Arts from l’Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). Her work can be found in public and private collections, including the Musée du Québec. She has been the recipient of several grants and awards, including from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec. She has had numerous solo and group exhibitions across Canada and Europe and has participated in notable shows on contemporary abstract painting.
