Patrick Delaney: Art Ascending

Patrick Delaney: Art Ascending Artist Reception: Saturday, May 9, 2015 6:45 pm

Patrick Delaney is not a slave to his medium; whether it is mixing acrylic with ink or markers with ink pens. His work speaks freely allowing the mind to actively wander each time the eye confronts a piece of his work.

More so, his work conveys an innate sense of continuous motion, evoking both physical and emotional reactions to his work. As Delaney rightfully describes his work, “It’s almost as if I am taking shallow breaths and suddenly I get a burst of fresh sea air. It invigorates my whole body, but in particular, it invigorates my mind.”

Lynda Payton

Lynda Payton is an artist who creates work in her own trademarked medium, trans photo digital artistry.™ Her abstract portraiture and graphic works employ traditional photographic media paired with layered digital files of photograph captures, vector art (or 3D rendered imagery).

Payton feels that an artist’s responsibility is to be a reflection of society. That is why, her work provokes viewers to draw from their memories--a place, time, or moment from which they can connect. A native of Chicago, Payton currently resides in Maryland.

Artist Reception TBA
