January’s Arts Night Out at CLICK Workspace features the final month of “Rock, Paper, Scissors,” a group show featuring sculptors Richard Rice ("rock"), Marguerite Belkin ("paper"), and Gregory Kline ("scissors").
Welcome Home Northampton Fundraiser
In Marguerite Belkin's 700-piece installation, im·Migration, three different animal migratory patterns (monarch butterflies, a school of fish, and a flock of Canada geese) serve as metaphor for the struggles of people seeking sanctuary in different parts of the world. The paper sculptures will be available to take home as individual pieces or in groupings, in exchange for donations that will be passed along to Welcome Home Northampton to support its local refugee relocation efforts. A representitive of Welcome Home Northampton and new community members will be in attendance.
Joining Belkin's installation:
Richard Rice ("rock") is a Northampton-based artist who has worked as an independent sculptor since the 1970s. He is a past recipient of an Arts Lottery award from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and his work has been featured in numerous exhibitions throughout Massachusetts and beyond.
Gregory Kline ("scissors") describes himself as "an artist, maker, collector, hoarder, daydreamer, mudlark, tinkerer, and a scavenger of kitsch." He makes objects that play with history, conventions, and paradigms through humor and satire. The works are cast in bronze from molds made from an archive of hundreds of objects in his collection.
