"Formations" Neil Wilkins Solo Show
Presented by The Firehouse Center for the Arts
July 3 - July 28, 2013
“Formations”, a solo exhibit of new work by painter Neil Wilkins, opens in the Art Gallery at Firehouse Center for the Arts on Wednesday, July 3 and will be on view Wednesdays through Sundays until July 28. The artist’s reception will be Sunday, July 14 from 1 – 3 PM in the Art Gallery at Firehouse Center for the Arts on Market Square in Newburyport, MA. Wilkins’ paintings are bright and precise, inspired by the microscopic view of organic matter as seen through a powerful microscope. But the circles and clusters he paints are anything but microscopic. His sense of color and patterns expand his inspiration to large scale canvasses that, in profusion, can toy with the viewer’s perception of dimension. This is serious, abstract art but it is also fun. The circles and the strong colors will make gallery visitors smile.
