The Media Arts Council is pleased to host the Abstract Artists from the Community Arts Center in Wallingford to exhibit in the MAC Gallery.

 

The Abstract Artists take real images or ideas and express them in abstract forms. They meet weekly at CAC to paint, support, and critique each other’s artistic efforts. In their Monday sessions, members start new paintings, work through problems with current paintings, explore new techniques and ideas, sketch, and play with color.

Artist Shelly Myers shares that she paints with the group because “capturing reflective light in a landscape by creating contrasts of light and dark shapes and surfaces contributes to my impression of a particular place”.

 

Exhibiting Abstract Artists are: Debs Bleicher, Wayne Brown, Jeannie Cammarota, Patricia Davis, Judy Fowler, Leslie Gerhart, Marge Gillis, Fran Sullivan House, Rochelle Myers, Nancy Markezin, Kathy McLamb, and J. Rossi.

The Abstract Artists come from a variety of arts backgrounds: several  were art teachers,  others work in design fields, and arts administration. All have continued their education beyond their degrees and  work in their own studios. As a group, the artists are deeply committed to the life-affirming power of art.

As artist Patricia Davis stated, “’Ars Longa, Vita Brevia.’  Art is long, life is short”.
