This exhibition is the result of five artists responding to the magic of Monhegan Island, Maine. We all worked for a week in June of 2017 creating drawings and paintings that communicate the beauty and majesty of the island. We are happy to note how the colors and forms of the different paintings compliment each other in spite of the stylistic differences of the individual artists.

Jessica Burko
ArtProv Gallery
150 Chestnut Street
Providence, RI 02903

Solo exhibition in Burko’s most recent chapter of striving to make sense between the dichotomy of asserting an identity as an individual and being lost in the onslaught of responsibility to others. Beneath thick layers of encaustic medium figurative images are captured in frenzied motion seeming to emerge out of the haze. Created as a response to the demands of modern motherhood, Quiet/Loud treads heavily on unspoken taboos.
