‘Open Spaces’ art exhibit at First Unitarian Church plans closing reception

The art show “Open Spaces” will end with a public art reception from 2 to 6 p.m., Sunday, March 11. The show can also be viewed in the meantime in the Merritt Gallery/Wallace Robbins Chapel, First Unitarian Church, 90 Main St. on Sunday and by scheduled appointment during regular business hours by calling 508-757-2708.

“Open Spaces” is a show of art that opens visual spaces to the outside and invites viewers to hold an inner space in which to read into the work. Four artists share artwork based on this spirit of dialogue and exchange. Through a diversity of expression and genres, we hope to inspire an atmosphere of inclusion and openness to the possibility of a visual, emotional and conceptual connection.

In her photography, Tasha Halpert captures openings in everyday situations, which give pause and encourage reflection. Her “harmonious combinations of shapes, interesting lighting effects” and “a long history of capturing a poetic moment” leave the viewer with a feeling of pleasant surprise to have shared such a moment, the release said. Much of her long history in art is with her companion, Stephen Halpert, whose collages have been arranged complementary to Tasha’s photos.
