FORM & FORMLESS: Figurative to Abstract at Gallery35!

May 5  – June 9, 2018
Artists’ Reception  May 12  6-8 pm
Closing Reception  June 9  6-8 pm

Our final exhibit of 2017/2018, Form & Formless, will feature contrasting styles ranging from figurative to fanciful, representational to totally abstract.

For figurative artist John Devaney, “The gesture of figures is always prominent for me: how movement shapes both the figure and ground. I try to capture a sense of fluidity, an interplay between the seemingly solid objects and the space around them, whether in my paintings of swimmers, city crowds, buildings, and still life.”

Another representational artist, Teresa Hommel, is showing images of leaves and grass, and rocks with moss and/or lichen, where the key feature of the work is the composition.

Of Woman Dancing, Ingrid Sletten explains “In my experience the spirit has shape and texture and an almost metallic quality about it; my dancing figure shows this in her essence.”

Virginia Asman has stretched her ability to work abstractly using the magical tools of the digital media to transform her southwest imagery of a chile ristra, a coyote and a skull.

Abstract work by Susan Demmet-Harris will complement the realistic renderings of three models painted by Kevin Maxwell at Chelsea Classical Studios and Lois Ross’ painting, Still LIfe.

Of special interest is Bev Thompson’s sculpture Ghost Dog (stone carving), which will be presented in photographic form.

Also exhibiting work are Cari Clare, Denise Fryburg, John Connors, Juanita Gilmore, Peter Robinson, Valerie Lynch, and Yolande Heljnen.
