The opening reception for “Abstract Works In Series” will take place Sunday, August 24 from 4:30 – 7 pm, featuring the music of Jeanne Kuhns and Lynn Gudmundsen, as well as complimentary beverages and light appetizers, at Woodwalk Gallery. The exhibit will run from August 24 – October 5.
With diverse experiences, histories, visions, contexts, and lives, Anne Egan, Marjorie Mau, and Kristi Roenning share the abstract artist’s quest to find the essence of what it is they paint.
Egan’s artist statement quotes Tennyson: “I am a part of all that I have met.” Eagan goes on to say, “all that I have met and done comes to rest in some way in each of my paintings. I hope that [each painting I do] might be the start of a dialogue between me, the painter, and you, the viewer.”
Roenning’s artistic statement begins, “My paintings pay homage to ordinary things.” One of her most recent series of paintings, in homage to her new Labrador puppy, led her to quote poet John Duemer, who said “There are some simple truths, and the dogs know what they are.”
Mau states, “My works are about the act of painting, how it moves, breathes, layers, is added to and subtracted from. It is enough.”
“Abstract Works” is about simple truths distilled from the rich, full lives of these three artists and is an exhibit not to be missed.
