Dana Volkert Art Exhibition in the Hamptons
We were very excited to attend the opening of our dear friend Dana Volkert’s Hamptons art exhibition at MaD Gallery in Wainscott this past Saturday evening. Dana’s work has been featured in numerous solo and group shows, but this is her first exhibit in the Hamptons. The title of her show is “Atmospheres,” which is appropriate since elements of nature appear as common threads throughout the entire collection.
Dana’s fascination with the natural world is translated onto her square, rectangular and circular creations as swirls of color that, on a grand scale are reminiscent of imaginary yet familiar planetary bodies, and on a smaller scale, are evocative of the whorls found within the natural variations of marble and granite. “I have always been inspired by the natural world and its colors and complexity,” Dana said. “This new body of work has elements of sea, sky, stone and earth.”
