SPECTRA — an exhibition of artworks by
Tracy Silva Barbosa
Kim Carlino
Sandrine Colson

SPECTRA: a plurality of spectrums where art exists, whole and valid unto itself; or the wavelengths of energetic radiation; extending beyond both materia + mechanica to the truly spectral- that gossamer grail of Post Contemporary Art: the sublime.

The visual melodies of Barbosa, Carlino, and Colson’s works harmonize through their innate affinities commanding a glimpse outside the everyday: a golden hour of an exhibition, their momentary impressions immortalized. Works range from oversized to compact.

Sandrine Colson (Western Ave. Studios, Lowell, MA) , is an active member of Atlantic Works Gallery and brings her savvy as an educator, engineer, and entrepreneur to each piece with its own storied tale. Her most recent body of works focus on environmental impacts both present and forthcoming.

Kim Carlino’s (Eastworks, Easthampton, MA) paintings and murals have been commissioned by any happening city in the continental U.S. In both micro & macro scale Carlino’s geometries elude to a fractal inorganic crystalline yet simultaneously evoking a biological organic, a gorgeous synthesis where matter is made living, the universe beholding itself as witness.

The artists will be present at the opening reception, Thursday, October 14, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., and future events are expected through the run of this exhibition. For further details please contact Ian Babylon, curator & artist at
