Talk: Monday, November 15 from 6pm to 7pm

Ugo will discuss The Shape of Happiness online Monday, November 15, from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m.; rsvp here.

Bold, colorful geometrics strike an upbeat chord in The Shape of Happiness, painter Edward Ugo’s solo exhibition at The Art League Gallery. It opens Thursday, November 11, and will be on view through December 5.

In Ugo’s paintings, shapes appear energetic: robust lines run parallel or intersect; angles overlap and pierce; squares and four-pointed stars merge in kaleidoscopic patterns. He considers them a reflection of his feelings expressed through shapes and color.

According to the artist, creating this body of work has been particularly comforting during these past years of unforeseen changes and challenges. When painting, “I feel at peace with myself and the world around me.”

Also opening this month:

IMPart Special Exhibit, featuring ceramics and bladesmithing works created by area veterans at The Art League. The IMPart program connects recent Injured Military Personnel with visual arts experiences created for personal enrichment, relaxed social engagement, the improvement and redevelopment of fine motor skills, and expressive catharsis.

One day each week, veterans are welcomed at our Madison Annex facility and offered individualized instruction and creative attention. (Those interested in joining should contact blairm@theartleague.org)

November 2021 Open Exhibit, a member show featuring 106 artworks in various media, including painting, sculpture, and photography.
