DETAILS!

November 3rd - November 24th, 2018

Opening reception: November 3rd, 6-9pm

In its 28th year running, this November the Annual Holiday Miniatures Show at Abend is an exhibition for everyone. With work from a wide range of artists, from emerging to well-established, and spanning multiple genres, art appreciators of all types will delight in this engaging and long-standing exhibition which fills the entire expansive gallery space with over 50 artists contributing anywhere from 200 to 300 original works of art. The exhibition will also afford art collectors the opportunity to add some very prominent signatures to their personal gallery at more modest prices. 

Given the wide range of subject matter and varying styles amongst the artists in the show, there will be much to see and many ideas to explore. The only parameter given to the artists are a size restriction (no larger than 80 sq. in., roughly 8x10”) which gives them plenty of room to explore and create powerful works of art. The smaller size parameters make the pieces more accessible in terms of collectability, especially for new purchasers hoping to start their art collection. The prices are wide ranging, providing collectors of all ages the ability to pick something up, and with the holidays right around the corner the timing couldn’t be better.

Participating Artists:
Zoa Ace, Rebecca Mason Adams, Jaclyn Alderete, Daevid Anderson, Mark Andrew Bailey, Elizabeth Barden, Joanna Barnum, Jim Beckner, Sarah Becktel, Kelly Birkenruth, Jérôme Birti,Lucas Bonani, Raymond Bonilla, Destiny Bowman, Linda Tracey Brandon, Dina Brodsky, Sue Bryan, Adam Burke, Ali Cavanaugh, Morgan Cameron, Jeremy Caniglia-Cox, Joshua Carlton, Todd Carpenter, Lorenzo Chavez, Mary Chiaramonte, Donavan Christie, Hilary Clarcq, Robin Cole, Michelle Condrat, Shaina Craft, Stephanie Deshpande, Jacob Dhein, Kathiucia Dias, Judith Dickinson, Marina Dieul, Jon Doran, Tenley DuBois, Matthew Alfonso Durante, Alpay Efe, Kim English, Natalia Fabia, DebiLynn Fendley, Barbara Fox, James Van Fossan, Leigh Ann Van Fossan, Nancy France-Vaz, Lisa Fricker, Mark Friday, Ann Gargotto, Jennifer Gennari, Jason Lee Gimble, Bruce A Gómez, Thane Gorek, Lindsey Bittner Graham, Tina Grant, Agnes Grochulska, Barbara Hack, Adam Hall, Johanna Harmon, Derek Harrison, Jennifer Hartzler, Dana Hawk, Stephanie Hartshorn, Jane Hunt, Mat Hurtado, Nicole Hyde, John Hyland, Cody Jimenez, Maria Jimenez, Mick Junco, David Kammerzell, Lorena Kloosterboer, Francien Krieg, Olga Krimon, Shawn Krueger, Jason Kowalski,Lindsey Kustusch, Shelli Langdale, Joshua Lawyer, Shana Levenson, Che Leviathan, MJ Lindo, Rachel Linnemeier, Daire Lynch, Ellen Starr Lyon, Luke Mack, Gayle Madeira, Nicolas Martin, Hyeseung Marriage-Song, Brian Mashburn, Gina Matarazzo, Heiko Mattausch, Jessica Smit Mattingly, Patrick Maxcy, Trey McCarley, Yvonne Melchers, Erin Milan, Hannah Moghbel, David Molesky, Josie Morway, Ryan Morse, Nadezda, Christopher O'Connor, Gage Opdenbrouw, Sandra Pratt, Susanna Ragel, Louis Recchia, Ximena Rendon, Rob Rey, Matthew Saba, Jason Sacron, Dave Santillanes, Hiroshi Sato, Kirsten Savage, Viktoria Savenkova, Daniel Segrove, David Shingler, Serupa Sidaarth, Tina Spratt, Elsa Sroka, Timothy Standring, Clyde Steadman, Victoria Steel, Annie Stegg, Brian Stephens, Sarah Stieber, Sybiline, Judy Takacs, Matt Talbert, John Tarantola, Delphyne V., Vakseen, Leah Waichulis, Tracy Wall, Daggi Wallace, Babs Webb, Julianna Wells, John Wentz, Nicole Williford, Anna Wypych, Drew Young, Kierstin Young, Zack Zdrale, Kaitlin Zeismer

Sphere of Influence- Solo Exhibition
Aug

to Aug 29

Sphere of Influence- Solo Exhibition

Please join me during the August 3rd Gallery Walk for the opening reception of my solo show, Sphere of Influence. How often do you consider your personal sphere of influence? It exists to varying levels in all our relationships. Becoming a parent has caused me to examine this much more often. Sometimes I am able to see the positive and negative effects of that influence but also to see how it works both ways.  In adult relationships, this effect often is heightened with time but in parenting, it seems to ebb and flow. I'm not offering answers in my work but rather offering another view to consider.

The thoughts behind the work this show is named for: (image used to promote this post) Due to the destruction and hate promoted by our president and cowardly Republican-led Congress in the past year, I am feeling very protective of my brood and your. This is about our personal influence and the global influence of our country. Our dark underbelly is showing and it is rank. It's on us all to make this country great for all.

 

Artist Statement

Our lives are all so busy with what feels like constant motion. Through my portraits, I am collecting moments that show a beautiful, ordinary scene in a very intimate way. I explore two main themes. The first centers on capturing the intensity of the teenage years of my children, their strong emotions, gender issues and their use of technology. Having both a son and a daughter, I have a front row seat; I witness how they and their challenges differ per their personalities and genders. Often reactions fall right down stereotypical lines and other times I am surprised. Hand in hand with painting about my children is exploration of my own identity as a mother/wife/woman and how my roles are ever changing right long side. I paint modern “selfies”, use female models, and even portraits of my husband to create self-portraits of my experience. Where we are right now as a family can be challenging, fun, manic, loving, heart breaking but above all, it is full of emotion. Whether or not the viewer can interpret our story, my hope is that they are able to feel that depth of emotion poured into every brush stroke.
