Start the Art with a Dialogue by Ruthananda
Carefully improvised, this upcoming show at Chapel Hill Art Gallery reveals many contrasts and commonalties between seven artists including Ruth Ananda, Natalie Boorman, Carole Donovan, Claude Kattan, Eduardo Lapetina, Lindy Muse, and Rose Wenkel. The exhibit is linked together with harmonious colors, and balanced with various sizes, shapes, subjects, and textures. Individual works of art are made even more distinctive in this context, making an interesting visual conversation.
Carol’s paintings of flowers emphasize organic shapes, patterns and natural colors, drawing us in to relish earthly treasures. Rose’s realistic and abstract work spans a variety of subjects, styles, color palettes, in oil and acrylic. Lindy’s landscapes in watercolor batik delight with subtle tints and delicate innate beauty. Claude’s traditional studies in oil are classically comforting with a wide array of light, shadow, and careful shading. Natalie’s enchanting and timeless pots incorporate ancient techniques with results that are completely contemporary. Ruth’s lyrical, meditative, playfully textured acrylics range in size, some fitting in the palm of your hand. Eduardo’s abstracts are large, passionate, strong, bold, charming, and poetic like the titles.
This show has an opening reception on Friday, April 10th, from 6-9 PM. Read more about it at the gallery website. And during this special event featured commissioned artists, we hope that
Meso Trio returns to play live Classical Music!
