You can meet the artists featured in the Flinn Gallery’s latest show Albertini + Spilmann at a reception on Thursday, Jan. 30 from  6 to 8 p.m.

The show, curated by Flinn Gallery co-chairs Tracy McKenna and Kirsten Dieterich Pitts, is made up of the work of artists Sydney Albertini and Heinrich Spillman, and will run from Jan. 30 to March 12.

Ms. Albertini, a multimedia artist, will be showcasing a series of self-portraits and textile pieces, reflecting an on-going investigation with abstraction. The portraits build on each other, with the depiction of patterned fabric or clothing twisting, wrapping, and eventually overtaking the details of the face. Ms. Albertini was raised in Paris, and studied art at Parsons School of Design in New York, and fresco painting in Italy. Her work has been widely exhibited throughout the US, and has received attention from publications such as Vogue and the New York Times.

Mr. Spillman is known for creating large scale wood sculpture, drawings, carvings, and furniture. For this body of work, Mr. Spillmann asks the viewer to explore the interminable relationship between man and nature. He salvaged trees that had fallen victim to Hurricane Sandy, and transformed them into art, refining trunks with carving tools that rearticulate the ring patterns of the wood.

Mr. Spillman was raised in Basel, Switzerland and studied at Basel’s Academy of Art and Design and Cooper Union in New York. Now based in Brooklyn, he is an architect at the Brooklyn Public Library. His work has been exhibited in both New York and Switzerland.

In addition to the show’s opening reception, there will be an Artist’s Talk on Sunday, March 2, at 2 p.m. in the Flinn Gallery. Albertini + Spillmann will be on view Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with extended hours to 8 p.m. on Thursdays, and from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays. Artworks will be for sale with a portion of the proceeds supporting the Friends of the Greenwich Library.
