Professor Behind Waterbury Comic Convention Studies Black Characters

Professor Behind Waterbury Comic Convention Studies Black Characters

Like most American children of the 1950s, William Foster III, liked comic books. They were cheap, they were readily available from any drug store or newsstand in his native Philadelphia, and they were—well, exciting and fun. He liked the plots, he liked the characters—but then it dawned on him: he never saw a face like his own.

Description

“Pulse” - A exhibition of a series of mixed-media wall sculptures

 

Troy Fine Art Services, Inc. presents "PULSE”: mixed media with sculpture by nationally known artist, Carol Brookes. “This holiday exhibition encourages the reflection one might contemplate as another New Year ushers in.”, says Founder Troy Amuso.  Opening reception will take place December 7th from 6 to 8 pm and remain on display through end of January. 

 

"PULSE" examines the hemisphere as a structure, the ordinary forms seen every day in their many incarnations, such as an egg, a pod, an eye, the earth, planets and domes. The various concepts that these forms evoke are explored in the series, including thoughts and insights into life, formation and the mystical and mysterious. Nails, washers, rope, tubing, wire, rubber mats, dowels, leather buckles, industrial honeycomb insulation and tacks are just some of the materials that Brookes incorporates into her wall and box-like structures.  I consider the entire world my art supply store,” says Brookes, “I see the world as layers of structure and surface, one upon the other – a concept that drives my work."

 

Brookes' artwork has been featured in notable galleries, universities and cultural centers throughout the United States, most recently seen at the  Eastern Connecticut State UniversityOther venues include the McLarry Modern Gallery in Santa Fe, Illinois Central College in East Peoria, the Maryland Federation of Art in Annapolis, B. J. Spoke Gallery in Huntington, New York, the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, the Women's Center in Los Angeles, and the Miami Metropolitan Museum and Art Center.

 

Gallery hours are 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday -Friday,  Thursday to 8p.m.  Saturdays and evenings by appointment. For more information, call (203)255-1555  www.troyfineart.com
