Local Women in Abstraction

Local Women in AbstractionArtist Reception: Tuesday, March 13, 7–9 pm

In recent years, many art institutions have sought to give recognition to women artists who historically were not represented in important collections, exhibitions, or books. This exhibition seeks to build on this momentum by celebrating local female artists investigating various mediums and modes of abstract expression. Line, shape, color, texture, space and form are the universal tools that these artists employ to communicate the ethereal, the mundane and the simply sublime.

Katherine Hart

Katherine HartArtist Reception: Thursday, May 10, 7–9 pm

Hart works with encaustic techniques to cast stories among layers of pigment and wax. Inspired by everything that surrounds or encounters her, she does not premeditate, but rather lets the materials direct the course of the work. The result is a composition emboldened by her organic pursuit, the inherent emotions and challenges of that pursuit—a vivid example of art imitating life.
