‘Finding Form in Stone and Paint’
Two NH Art Association artists Ellen and Lisa McManus team up for September show

Forms and figures hide in ordinary places, unrefined, waiting for the artist to uncover what can be found. It takes a patient hand and an open mind to sift through matter and reveal what’s there. The reward is the surprise of discovering something unexpected. Sidor and McManus find forms in different media but both feel their way through until the unrealized form is revealed.

Sidor’s carvings contain the lumbering spirit of earthy bears, folksy and uninhibited. McManus’s painted lines and shapes combine and overlap in biomorphic patterns of flora and fauna.
