RAG show opens Saturday
‚ÄúShare Your Life,‚Äù an installation project by David Kenny and Diana Cozzens, will open at the Walt Meade Gallery of The Roxbury Arts Group on Saturday, April 26. An opening reception will be ¬†held from 2 to 4 p.m.
The work on exhibit, created over a 10-year period, is a collection of found objects, sculpture, paintings and prints. Kenny and Cozzens, who share a home in Oneonta, say that this show is ‚Äúabout living together, creating together, having a vision and sharing it. The work is a collection of our habits, rituals and our day-to-day living. These works are a portrait of who we are, where we have been and how we envision the future. The work on display is work we have created together ‚Äî not just in a constructive, tactile, medium sense but in a shared, inspired, spiritual and energetic sense. The scope is much larger than solely creating art in a studio with just one mind ‚Äî these works are our life, our atmosphere, our past and our future. This is how we learn as a couple, as friends and as lovers.‚Äù
