    Hanging by a Thread Exhibit at BAFFA Gallery

    by Ann Armoza

    The BAFFA Gallery is proud to present the work of emerging young artist, Renee Grace Reilly.  Ms. Reilly recently graduated from LIU Post with a degree in Fine Arts.

    During her undergraduate years she also studied at Firenze Arti Visive in Italy and won the Eleanor Lockwood Memorial Award for Excellence in Sculpture.

    Hanging by a Thread was inspired by a dramatic change in the artist’s life which changed the meaning of some of the paintings she had done. Parts of the paintings that had special meaning to Ms. Reilly were removed. The artist found that sewing in the “wounds” of her canvases was very therapeutic. The process of cutting and sewing the pieces became a healing process.

    The show can be viewed at The BAFFA Gallery from July 9th through the 17th with an artist’s reception from 6 to 8 PM on July 10th. The show is free and open to the public.

    The BAFFA Gallery is located at 47 Gillette Avenue in Sayville.  For further information: (631)589-7343 or www.baffa.org.
