Aesthetic tension is the order of the day at the Cross MacKenzie Gallery, where an exhibition pairing the work of local ceramicist Anthony Stellaccio with that of Boston-based painter Mary Armstrong opens Friday, with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m.
Stellaccio makes tiny, talismanic figurines whose cracked, imperfect surfaces are complemented by the glossy, machine-made Formica pedestals on which they sit. Armstrong’s softly atmospheric works are a similar study in opposites, hovering halfway between colorist abstractions and Impressionist landscapes.
