Location: Foundry Gallery
Call and Response Presented by The Artists of the Abstract Collective Opening Reception -- Friday, July 6, 6 - 8 pm About the Exhibit An eclectic group of artists, including Foundry Gallery members and guest artists, presents a diverse collection of bold, graphic paintings that combine organic elements and urban sensibilities. The distinctive use of color, pattern, and light in each work comes together to create an interactive, visual fusion that mimics the energy of improvised jazz music. Like musical riffs, the paintings call and respond to each other, producing a rhythmic harmony that is both joyful and dark. The Artists of the Abstract Collective are: Ana Elisa Benavent*, Lisa Bohrer, Maruka Carvajal*, Ann Crain, Marie Crow, Denise Dittmar, Octavia Frazier, M. Jane Johnson, Katie Joselow, Cecilia Kalish, Paula Lantz, Meg MacKenzie (*Foundry Gallery member) JULY ALL MEMBER EXHIBIT In addition to the Artists of the Abstract Collective exhibit in the main Gallery, Foundry's Gallery II features member artists exhibiting work that has not been shown before at the Foundry.
