The Cambria Center for the Arts is pleased to announce the Gallery’s new show:  What Will Remain with featured artist Marcie Begleiter exhibiting her painting, drawing, ceramics, and tapestry.  The show will open on Saturday, November 5, with a reception taking place from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. 

     On Sunday, November 6, at 2:00 p.m. the Gallery will host an art talk with Begleiter.  She will discuss the various mediums that she uses, as well as her work in photography and film will be included.  The California-based artist will be in conversation with artist Christina McPhee about her current practice and how it relates to three decades of work in art and film.

     Working in and around the boundaries of contemporary surrealism, eco-feminism, and biomorphism, Begleiter’s work explores hidden systems, secret codes, and fantastic micro-organisms.  It provides an intellectual as well as instinctual response to what is happening in nature.  Materials include watercolor, ink, graphite, ceramics, and photography.  Her work is exhibited at the Praxis Center of Art in Minneapolis, the University of California Los Angeles and University of California Santa Barbara, the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art, and will be included in Nature 2023 at the Czong Institute for Contemporary Art in Seoul. Begleiter directed the feature documentary “Eva Hesse” that premiered at the Whitney Museum in 2015.  

     In addition to Begleiter’s work, the Gallery is happy to revive the show Small Gems.  This popular format for CCA’s holiday shows in past years will run concurrently with our featured artist.  The exhibit opens online November 5, at 11:00 a.m.  For more information, please visit the CCA website at:  cambriaarts.org/gallery-exhibits/.  Gallery hours are Friday from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m., Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and Sunday from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m.  The exhibit will run through December 31.  Contact the Gallery (1350 Main Street) with any questions by email at:  gallery@cambriaarts.org.
