Two artists to exhibit

Atlantic Works Gallery, 80 Border St., will present a new exhibition of works by Charlene Liska and Christine Palamidessi, “Silent. Silence. Silenced.” now to Nov. 25.

A Third Thursday reception will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 16.

Palamidessi’s sculptural work and monoprints re-mythologize noisy historical and contemporary events with deliberate subtraction of sound and actions of self-censorship.

Using video and photography, Liska layers the psychological with the scientific, looking at the unreliability of perception and sound, the anxiety resulting from loss of signal, and, finally, the joy of small sounds.

Several artists have been invited to participate in the exhibition, including Christine Coënon, French sound artist, and John Wilk, Boston mobile maker.

Gallery hours are from 2 to 6 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays or by appointment.

Visit for more information.
