Protection: Art Installation by Sarah Dineen
March 19 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Abstract artist Sarah Dineen has amassed an army of painted helmets, shields, tubes, and microphone-trees lining the Great Hall of Hammond Castle Museum. Working in multiples to magnify the uncanny human and industrial presence of each form, she uses abstraction to suggest familiarity while leaving open to the viewer the possibilities of their own imagination. Dineen’s work celebrates the physicality of painting and its capacity to echo the properties of protective coverings like metal and bark. Themes of protection personal power, love, and connection run throughout the work. The exhibit features nine large-scale sculptures and 32 paintings.
Dineen will host an opening reception on March 19th from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm and a closing reception on March 30th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Both receptions and the exhibit are free and open to the public. Portions of Hammond Castle Museum will remain closed to the public. All pieces are available for purchase and a portion of the proceeds will support the Museum. Parking is free.
