McClain Gallery presents Mara Held: "Errant Traveller" opening day
McClain Gallery presents an exhibition of Mara Held works in their West Gallery space. As the exhibition title, "Errant Traveler," suggests, Held’s wanderlust is reflected in her organic imagery: the waterfalls of the Catskills, veined wings of indigenous insects, fungi seen growing on ancient forest floors, and pelagic forms found in coral reefs. Held’s preferred medium is egg tempera, a painstaking technique mastered by Renaissance painters.
Following the opening day, the exhibit will be on display through August 26.
