January 5, 2009
Echoes: Portraits of the Female Spirit, an exhibition of mixed media paintings by Amherst, Mass., artist Oriole Farb Feshbach, will be featured from January 13-April 5 in the Community Gallery at the Michele & Donald D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts.
Feshbach creates portraits that juxtapose and integrate traditional portraiture mediums such as photography, lithography, collage and pastel in order to explore their complementary possibilities. She has painted generations of women and incorporated references to art history to create multi-layered portraits.
Feshbach has exhibited extensively throughout the country. Her work is in the permanent collections of a number of museums, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Denver Art Museum and many others.
She recently published a book titled Luminations, featuring a series of paintings to accompany the poem by Wallace Stevens, The Auroras of Autumn. The book will be for sale in the Museum Store.
