Marci MacGuffie to exhibit at Fairfield University's Lukacs Gallery
Paintings, drawings and a site-specific installation of artist Marci MacGuffie will be on display from Tuesday, Jan. 29, through Wed., Feb. 20, in Fairfield University's Lukacs Gallery, Loyola Hall, Room 17. The exhibit opens with a reception at 5:30 p.m.; a lecture follows at 6 p.m.
MacGuffie combines the fluidity of the hand with the technical finesse of the computer to create large-scale, often humorous installations. She describes her imagery as "short hand" abstractions of animal/insect scenarios and/or patterns in nature. Shapes from her imagination are simplified and altered through the use of color, material, texture or scale. Her experience as a screen printer is reflected in the colorful, flat shapes discernable in her work. Her more recent installations are related to the body of work begun as a graduate student at the Rhode Island School of Design in 2000.
The gallery is open Mondays through Fridays from and most evenings. For specific hours call Frances Hynes, gallery director, at (203) 254-4000, ext. 2476.
