Paint and metal become form.
Transforming the gesture into evocative works of art, three artists express their reactions to motion, form and time in paintings, and jewelry explosive with color, passion and intellect.
Truthfully present in the moment, each artist explores her unique vision with a common thread.
Amy Reeves, " The passage of time has become a recurring theme in my jewelry."
Andrea Lawson, "In my Rite of Spring paintings, I explore movement and rhythm of gestural dance figures as they appear and disappear creating a metaphor for our relationship with a pulsating natural world."
Karen Kosoglad, " I'm interested in the gestural moments in everyday life and the balance between weight, rhythm, shape and color."
Transforming Gesture will be on view October 1 through November 1, 2010
