GALLERY WALK TO FEATURES PAINTINGS BY LINN BRUCE
BRATTLEBORO, VT – During the month of April, Persons School, at the Marlboro College Technology Center will feature the work of Marlboro College alumnus and Putney resident Linn Bruce.
The exhibit will showcase a collection of his most recent abstract paintings. “These paintings are about color and movement, gesture and action. All of these qualities have a kinetic element, like many elements of nature,” Bruce explained. “They are not descriptive. They do not represent anything. They are alive in and of themselves. They could be metaphors of elements of nature. But they are not like something. They are something or nothing depending on your visual involvement. Your visual and emotional involvement is crucial and essential to your experience.”
Bruce graduated from Marlboro College in 1955 where he studied painting under Winn Tuttle. Since that time he has studied painting under Fernando Gerassi, received his MFA in Visual Arts from Goddard College and has taught painting at the Putney School and Marlboro College. His work can be found in a number of local permanent collections, and both nationally and internationally in private collections. His work has been exhibited in a diverse number of settings including Nabor Carillo Gallery in Mexico City, Hanson Galleries in Chicago, Nashawannuk Gallery in Easthampton, Massachusetts and Drury Gallery at Marlboro College.
Gallery walk at the Marlboro College Technology Center will begin at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, April 4. Free parking and refreshments are provided. Bruce's work will be exhibited not only during gallery walk at the Technology Center, but for the entire month of April.
