Reception for Rosemarie Fiore exhibition: 'Firework Drawings'

Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013

Gallery 1600

Atlanta, GA

SCAD Atlanta, 1600 Peachtree St.

The SCAD exhibitions department presents Rosemarie Fiore's "Firework Drawings," a selection of large-scale works on paper created using live fireworks and their pigments. Employing this distinctive medium in a performative process, Fiore strikes a balance between control and chance, the lasting and the evanescent. This dynamic selection demonstrates a strong interplay between powdery, amorphous ground and a complex and sophisticated manipulation of line, color and collage that in turn translates the raw energy and refined excitement of a fireworks display.

Gallery hours: Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
