A new exhibition entitled Out of Brooklyn, featuring works by Carol Radsprecher, will be on display in the Chesapeake Gallery in Harford Community College’s Student Center from September 27 to November 16. The public is invited to a reception on Wednesday, October 3, from 11:30 to 1 PM in the Gallery.

Carol Radsprecher earned a BFA and an MFA in painting from Hunter College in New York, NY. She used traditional methods of oil painting on canvas for years until she tried her hand at the digital arts and eventually began to adapt new skills in digital painting and Photoshop. Radsprecher states, “The speed with which images can be made and evolve into other images; the ability to save prior renditions while the images continue to evolve; the seemingly infinite possibilities of what can be made visible; the ephemeral nature of virtual products, and the easy storage—all of these qualities inherent in working digitally are exciting and stimulating.”

Her style could be best described as a combination of figuration and abstraction. She explains, “In some works the figuration predominates; in others, the abstract—but the resulting work contains an (un)easy combination of the two ways to translate feelings, memories and observations into visual images.”

The Chesapeake Gallery is open Monday to Thursday, 8:30 AM to 7 PM; and Friday, 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM.
