(Chicopee, Massachusetts)—The Borgia Gallery at Elms College will feature the work of miChelle m. Vara, titled inVoices, from October 28 through November 16, 2012. The artist’s reception will be held 12-2 p.m., November 16 in the gallery, located on the second floor of Mary Dooley College Center on the Elms College campus.
“I used an eclectic approach to abstract minimalism,” Vara said. “This work pushes the scope of dimension, and the finished pieces offer a visual smorgasbord that is as endless as my interests. Though metal and paint, I encompass the function and aesthetics of sculpture, to entice and challenge personal vibrations in a stimulating and fun manner.”
During the past 30 years, Vara’s work has won numerous awards and has been commissioned by a wide variety of museums, corporate, individual, and municipal clients.
Display will include newly completed works of jewelry, wall hangings and sculpture.
The exhibit will be on display 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. daily. The Borgia Gallery is located on the second floor of the Mary Dooley College Center on the Elms College campus.
