Generally when someone is taking a snapshot, they're trying to capture a moment in time that has some kind of significance. But sometimes we end up visually freezing ordinary, unimportant moments. Artist Anca Pedvisocar has chosen some insignificant-seeming snapshots from the past century, and has recreated them in paintings for an exhibit called Take 2 at Silvermine Arts Center to give those moments a second chance. (Pictured is "The Question") Tension and solitude are two themes that crop up more than once in the show, and if you come to the reception Sunday afternoon, you can ask Pedvisocar questions about her works and the moods they convey in person.
