'Expansion and containment'

   Elspeth Halvorsen, "Mermaid and The Horseshoe Crab'' (box construction), in her show "Constructions, '' at  the Berta Walker Gallery, Provincetown,  July 28-Aug. 19.      The gallery says:    " Elspeth Halvorsen's mixed media constructions balance expansion and containment, liberty and boundaries, filling her work with found objects gathered in surrealist assemblages. The group of assemblages in this exhibition were created throughout her career, focusing on minimal and abstract space and yin/yang balance. They create the sense of miniaturist surrealistic stage sets - or even temples - wherein her repeating symbols of moon, sphere/egg, mirror/ reflecting surface, draw our attention psychologically inward.''
