MINIMALISM OBSERVED, Jag Gallery’s new exhibit, opening on Friday, January 13th, welcomes two artists, both familiar to the local art community, for their formal Jag debuts. Tory Mata and P. A. Blundell’s expressions in mixed media utilizing materials of all sorts deliver simple, yet complex executions, delicate and soothingly appealing as they are commanding.
Tory Mata, seen in group and solo shows in Key West is a two-time recipient of the Anne McKee Artist Grant and recently the prestigious Artist’s Grant from the South Florida Cultural Consortium for Monroe County explores, in her new body of work, the subtle nature of awareness and the unifying balance of opposing beings to captivating effect.
Blundell, who shares his time between Key West and Ontario returned in November with a small trove of assemblage; sculptural works of found objects, masterly constructed during the summer from gatherings of last season’s explorations throughout the lower keys.
Also on view will be new works in bronze from award-winning sculptor Walter Horak.
A gallery reception to meet the artists, Friday, January 13th from 5-7 is free and open to the public.
