West Tisbury artist Bricque Garber’s “Main Street Series” is featured at the Feldman Family Artspace at the M.V. Film Center through Jan. 7. The distinctive collages and mixed-media pieces have been shown throughout the Island, including at Featherstone, the All-Island Art Show, and the Agricultural Fair.
Garber debuted her art on the Island in 2010 with the sale of specially painted “Happy Boxes,” which she sold at the Oak Bluffs Open Market, some of which are still for sale at Featherstone. In explaining her transition from boxmaker to painting, Garber said that she likes to “move on from one theme or medium to another” as her interests expand. Her artistic endeavors began in the early ’70s as a jewelry maker, then she focused on textile painting, photography, and finally acrylic on canvas painting. For the past couple of years Garber has concentrated on collages and mixed media. In addition to her work as an artist, Garber teaches art classes for the Featherstone Support Memory Group as well as the Edgartown children’s library. The Film Center’s Feldman Family Artspace show is sponsored by the Featherstone Center for the Arts.
