Harmony & Radiance"
Pastels by Helena
May 1 - May 28, 2011
This exhibit features artwork by
the late Helena Breslin, a longtime resident of Red Bank, New Jersey.
Comprised of pastels on paper, these works are from her series "Seeing
the Stars in a Mystical Sense", an exploration of abstract
form and color.
Born in Killkelly Ireland, Helena's family came to the United States
and settled in Red Bank in 1957 when she was 14. In 1977 she married
Michael John Breslin, a writer and lifelong Red Bank resident. Finding
expression through art later in life, she could often be found with
her sketchbook, drawing inspiration from the landscapes around her,
especially when traveling to her native Ireland. Working in a meditative,
"automatic" style, her bright and vibrant works are hypnotic
studies in pure shape, color and composition.
A special reception will be held on Sunday May 1 from 2-4pm.
