This month in the Lobby Art Gallery we present the mixed media artwork of Mardi Wood. Join Mardi at her in-person reception in the Dance Palace Lobby Gallery from 3-5pm.
Gallery Hours Monday – Friday 9am-3pm
Mardi Wood draws and paints an ancient breed of cattle and horses that she finds in the Maremma area of Italy. The vacche Maremmane and cavalli Maremmani live and forage in the ravines and on the pianoro of the Etruscan and later Roman site of Vulci. These ‘on the spot’ drawings are spontaneous and in the moment. She carries her paper, brushes and inks and makeshift easel into the field, using fence railings to prop it all up.
