The Center, located on 22 Upper College Rd, will hold an opening reception featuring Beliveau’s art on Wednesday, Feb. 8 from 4-6 p.m. Free and open to the public, the exhibit will run daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Friday, March 17.
Entitled “ Monotype Trio,” the show features three monotypes created by Beliveau. According to Beliveau, a monotype is a type of printmaking where paint or ink is applied to an untouched surface and a single impression is then made from the surface.
“For these three particular prints, I applied oil paint to a 17×23-inch sheet of plexi-glass. Once I completed an image, I then printed it onto a sheet of white BFK Rives (specialty) paper,” said Beliveau in her artist’s statement.
“The three prints are all abstract in theme. I focused primarily on color, shape, texture, depth and movement. I really wanted to accent the abstract shapes and create a sense of movement.”
Beliveau, a local artist and resident of Wakefield, is a December 2005 graduate of the University of Rhode Island. She received a bachelor’s degree in art with a concentration in art studio.
