The artwork of eight juried member artists will be on display during the Attleboro Arts
Museum’s “8 Visions” Exhibition.
For the past twelve years the Attleboro Arts Museum has presented a late summer “Visions” group exhibition featuring the work of select member artists.
Tuesday, August 5, 2014 from 6:30 ‐ 7:30pm
7:30 ‐ 9pm
Free and open to the public.
“Our 2014 8 Visions artists approach their work from drastically different places. Some communicate profound statements that force the viewer to probe unsettling and personal issues of gender roles, martyrdom, and mental illness. While balancing such matters, the show also offers playful and celebratory expressions of youth, nature and – of all things – collectible toys,” states Mim Fawcett, Executive Director and curator of the exhibition. Fawcett continues, “The diversity of message makes 8 Visions compelling and energetic.”

Catcher, Catch Her is an ongoing series of experimental printmaking artist’s books by Cristina Hajosy. Cristina’s artist’s books transform the fundamental narrative of a book into ideas of women’s lifetime, chronology and fertility. Her art process of printmaking also mimics lifetime, especially when printing with materials that degrade and ultimately disintegrate. Image ghosting – those echoes of the previous print – can take the place of memory, as the layers of nets and lace are printed. The metaphor of woman being like a book provides provocative inspiration for Cristina. Each of her books opens herself to the viewer in unique ways. Literal and figurative details encourage debate on outside vs. inside, beauty norms, reproductive health, and all things “girlie.” Cristina Hajosy’s work reflects on the definitions and evolution of femininity, mortality, as well as trophyism.
