 Art opening reception for "Day In, Day Out" by David Bradford, Heidi Broner, Stephen Coyle, Maddy Le Mel.

Maddy LeMel has been described as a “scavenger poet” who reclaims and gives new life to found objects, including metal, screen, paper, thread and wire to create her very individual articulations of light and space in sculpture, assemblages and installations. At a show in Los Angeles, LeMel displayed wire and metal cages holding vintage tools from her own collection that appear to be contemplating escape through the cage openings. The cages themselves are interconnected by winding ladders. Also featured are wall works or “shadow works” that are memories of one- time entrapments.

Stephen Coyle has exhibited his art works from Boston to Belgium, from Santa Fe to San Francisco.“The standard bearers for my art are Cezanne and Van Gogh, not for the techniques they used but their devotion to living life and using the people and things that compose the world they live in as fodder for their art, Coyle said. “I live my life, observe and paint.”

David Bradford received a B.A. in Fine Art from Skidmore College and an MFA from Parsons School of Design. He has taught painting, drawing, and color. He has participated in numerous group exhibits, including shows at The Creative Art Center in New Haven,CT, The Tang Art Museum in Saratoga Springs, and the Cal State Polytechnical Institute in Pomona, CA. He was a founding member of Oxbow Gallery in Northampton, MA and shows at Bowery Gallery in New York City.

A self-taught painter, Heidi Broner grew up near New York City in a family of artists, immersed in an atmosphere in which drawing and color were a natural, delightful part of daily life. She works in a wide variety of media and has illustrated books, painted murals, created masks and puppets for the opera Frida (Kahlo), as well as huge outdoor pieces for the band Phish. “For the past 12 years I have been painting people at work. I am drawn by the sight of someone moving with unself-conscious grace and assurance within a world which is, to the worker, well known and rich in meaning and association,” says Broner.

The Flinn Gallery is on the second floor of the library at 101 West Putnam Avenue. Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, with extended hours to 8:00 p.m. on Thursdays and from 1 5:00 p.m. on Sundays.
