Runs thru March 16
"Spheres & Lines" exhibit by Rose Bryant explores abstract shapes and bold color.
Bryant's vivid color has always alluded to harmony and energy.
In this series she explores her color in themes of circles, orbs, spheres, lines and soft straight edges.
Featured in this exhibit are larger formats, such as 24x24" to 40x40", plus combinations of other sizes.
Much of Rose's abstract work in this series is reminiscent of landscape, space, and sky ... remaining largely untitled to allow the viewer's interpretation to form freely.
All artist studios will be open. Browse the building...
Apps and bevs 4-7, desserts 7-9.

More color and whimsy...abstract human forms, clouds, hearts.
Hand-dyed, hand-stitched, hand-painted "stitched expressions" by Corrine Gilman make us smile.
We are so happy she has joined us at the studio and look forward to being surrounded by her energy.
" My work revolves around the communication of abstract and offbeat impressions. Raw hand stitch on vintage and found textiles imparts a textural image of place. Mixed media collage and painting maps out the landscape. By listening to the whispers in nature and the forces of the unseen and mystery, I try and translate these communications through my work.
Be sure and take a look at Corrine's website.... fun stuff!

Ree Katrak has a rich history of art-making and art involvements. We are thrilled she is joining us at Art Up Front Street. Her work is adventurous, fresh, and abstract. Her enthusiasm is genuine. We love her good energy ... and her art .... and look forward to working with her. Welcome, Ree!
POINT OF VIEW
My work is an affirmation—or expression—of my own curiosity and delight in looking and seeing.
Looking at a landscape, an arrangement of objects and, not only interpreting what is seen, but also experiencing the moment of seeing: "Oh, that’s there—ah, ha!"
Not what it means, but simply the experience of it.
For me, art is about being awake, remembering you are alive. It is a celebration of all of one’s experiences—the dark times and the bright times; when we feel suffering, and when we feel liberation.
—REE HALL KATRAK

So fun to share time with an organization that does such wonderful things for community.
Join us all at Art Up Front Street for TGIF...a little happy hour with light bevs and apps, a free painting demonstration by Rose Bryant, plus hear a little more about what Womenade does for so many in need.
Part of the goal of this "social" is to bring people together to help Womenade maintain awareness.... just in case we ... or you ... may know someone or a family who needs a little help.
Of course, we will have art, our usual TGIF happy "hour" with our TGIF organizer (Anne Kenny),
a FREE painting demonstration,
and possibly a few more surprises.... maybe a drawing for the finished painting?
Stop by, we would love for you to meet a few members from Womenade
PLUS we would just love to see you :-). We are very low-key here... bring a friend.
