“Glimpses: New Watercolors” by Patricia Williams

Art Reception: Friday, November 8, 6 - 8:30pm
Hang with the Artists: Saturday, November 16, 2 - 4pm

“Glimpses” provides a tantalizing look inside the artist’s life. The vibrant watercolors take full advantage of the medium’s unique properties to breathe color and light into personal objects and rooms. The works are intimate, yet the viewer is kept at a distance by transparent washes and drips of color that partially obscure the images. The abstract quality of the drawing and application of paint raises the question of what is real, what is imagined and what is remembered.

Hang with the Artists:  Saturday, November 16, 2 - 4pm

Color ---vivid, fluorescent color, unfettered and free, is the subject of Pamela Reynolds’ most recent series of abstract paintings. Contrasting bold linear pattern with freely-wrought drips, splatters and pours, these paintings were inspired by urban signage, graffiti, psychedelia, tropical textiles, and the inner workings of the artist’s own mind.

Bordering on the abstract, these landscapes capture the light and feel of beach, bay, marsh and sky, with a minimum of information and a bravura approach to color. Make no mistake - these are not your grandmother’s watercolors!

“Pictures of Nothing” Paintings by McCain McMurray
Once used to describe the atmospheric work of J.M.W. Turner, ‘pictures of nothing’, reflects a common expectation that one sees a recognizable image in a work of art. My work, on the other hand, is an attempt to abstract those images to generate an evocation of a place, experience or memory for the viewer.
