The Rochester Museum of Fine Arts will feature a selection of works by Eric Katzman (in the Bernier Room) for the month of December. A public reception is planned for Thursday, December 9 from 6-8pm.
Eric Katzman is a New Hampshire-based painter and curator. He is a lifelong artist and is currently working on large, bright, abstract paintings. Katzman is also the co-founder/owner of Katzman Contemporary in Dover, NH. The gallery features a wide range of art made by emerging and seasoned artists alike.
“We know that memory is very plastic and easily deformed. This idea is the seed that gives form to the internal dialogue that shapes how I paint,” said Katzman. “My visual vocabulary, through impressions and memories, is grown and developed. Like gardening, I prune branching ideas and images, discarding elements while emphasizing others. My mark-making is the gentle unfolding of surface, interplay of form, undulating lines, and hard geometric shapes. These works, which were painted in the past eighteen months, create nonfunctional visual narratives of memory.”
The Rochester Museum of Fine Arts is located in the James W. Foley Memorial Community Center, 150 Wakefield Street, Rochester, NH, behind Spaulding High School.
The museum is sponsored by the City of Rochester, Rochester Main Street, Waterstone Properties Group, Bernier Insurance, MacEdge, Lenharth Systems, and Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce. Visit www.rochestermfa.org to learn more.
