Gilded Splinters Panel: Censorship and Contemporary Female Artists Join Alison Stinely, Diana Blanchard Gross, Vittorio Colaizzi, Lita Tirak and John Lee Matney for the discussion at the gallery.

View the exhibit and enjoy refreshments. In "Gilded Splinters," Alison Stinely utilizes various types of sculpting in collaboration with oil painting in order to create impactful pieces that are independent of a traditional frame. Stinely's work exudes a breath of life that it is everlasting, fantastical, and honest.

PRESS RELEASE The desire to incorporate sculptural elements with my oil paintings was born from rediscovering art and architecture of past eras during a stay in Italy where I was able to view such works "in the flesh." In order to elevate the drama and intrusive nature of the painted narrative, I literally pushed the painting upward and outward.
