“3 Perspectives”

Paideia Gallery

Two painters and a sculptor make a triple, female presentation in this show. The painters are Betty Barsha and Marsha Rich, the sculptor is Salli Hilborn. The most accomplished of the group is Miss Rich whose painting, Red Still Life has well controlled elements of form and color handled in the manner of an early Braque. Other canvases by this artist are not so impressive. Molded fiberglass is the medium of Miss Hil­born’s sculpture. When painted, it has the appearance of bronze (though it would be interesting to know what the native appearance of this new material is). The best effort of this artist is one of her smaller works titled, Woman In Awe. Betty Barsha shows school­book drawings and a sophisticated col­lage of cut-out colored letters and snatches of printing.
