POST East 2016 Participant
Muse Gallery, 52 N 2nd St in Old City Philadelphia, invites you to their October exhibition Color Collaborations. Three colorists Kathryn Lee, InLiquid member Diane Lachman, and Deann Mills will exhibit paper collages, watercolors, and oils.
The public is invited to First Friday on October 7, 5 – 9 PM. In addition, Muse Gallery is participating in Philadelphia Open Studio Tour (POST) on Saturday October 22 and Sunday October 23 from 12 – 6 PM.
Kathryn Lee: “My recent paper collages echo the bas reliefs that I loved when I lived in Italy with their interplay of light and shadow. About the same time, I discovered Johannes Itten’s theories on color. I found that there was an order to color just like music. It was intensely freeing to play with color with confidence, both using and not using the rules. These two concepts transformed my approach to art.”
Diane Lachman: “Color mood, relationships and memory are my subjects. It takes time and experience to see the subtle variations, but after studying and teaching this subject, I make these distinctions naturally, like breathing. In my recent paintings, geometric forms create tension with the transparent fluidity of the watercolor.”
Deann Mills: “Color is a different language, a way of seeing and being surprised. For me, painting is about the relationships and accidents that happen with color, and the joy of always experimenting and discovering something new.
Gallery hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 12 – 5 PM and by appointment.
