Reception for INTERPRETIVE BLENDINGS, New Paintings by Brenda Litman and Farida Hughes
on2gallery, California Building
2205 California Street NE
Two artists of the California Building 2nd Floor will showcase new and timely work in a 2-person exhibition in the on2gallery during July and August of 2017. Brenda Litman exhibits abstract paintings that echo the rich tapestry of nature in bold, gestural strokes. Her new paintings celebrate various aspects of nature yet reflect her musings on its fragility in this time of accelerating climate change. Farida Hughes displays oil and resin paintings which use color, shape and transparency to explore issues of identity. Each abstract “portrait” is an interpretation of a hybrid identity based on stories solicited from friends and acquaintances. Through formal investigation the paintings blend interactions of carefully composed colors to each embrace a new shape of beauty.
Meet the artists in the gallery on Saturday, August 12, 1-3 pm. The exhibiting artists will be available in the on2gallery from 1-3 pm to discuss their work during the August 12 Second Saturday Open Studio event in the California Building.
