Get creative and make art together! Families are invited to join us Saturday, November 27 at the BCA Center to create their own artworks inspired by our current exhibition Unbound and the work of featured artist Rob Hitzig whose vibrant, patterned paintings on birch plywood explore the possibilities of abstraction. Each Family Art Saturday offers a different art-making project that will ignite the imaginations of your family members!
Hilma af Klint was an abstract artist before the term existed. A visionary trailblazing figure who in 1906, inspired by spiritualism, science, and the riches of the natural world around her, began to reel out a series of huge, colorful, sensual works without precedent in painting. The subject of a recent smash retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum, af Klint was for years an all-but-forgotten figure in art historical discourse before her long-delayed rediscovery. Director Halina Dryschka’s dazzling course-correcting documentary describes not only the life and craft of af Klint, but also the process of her mischaracterization and erasure by both a patriarchal narrative of artistic progress and capitalistic determination of artistic value.

Unbound: Unbound features new and recent work by three New England artists who explore contemporary approaches to abstraction as it relates to architecture, space, and materials. United by their use of geometric, shaped forms that push outside the boundaries of the common rectangle, each artist considers the possibilities of abstraction using novel perspectives – unconstrained by prescribed expectations or formal rules. Featuring abstract painting, sculpture, and works on paper, Unbound includes the work of Rachel Gross, Rob Hitzig, and Kirsten Reynolds. Suggesting abstract landscape or architectural forms, Rachel Gross’ woodblock relief prints and shaped, multimedia panels explore the illusory, contradictory aspects of depicting form and space. Rob Hitzig’s geometric paintings transform the innate beauty of natural wood using layers of vibrant colors, linear pattern, and shellac – a natural finish known for its warmth and luminosity. Kirsten Reynolds’ site-specific installation, Spillover, appears poised between a state of ongoing construction and imminent collapse with its intersecting lines, arcs, planes, and patterns composed in playful, if puzzling, arrangements. Through creative innovation each artist in Unbound liberates their respective media from traditional norms
