Strong Lines is a group exhibition juried by The Creative Vision Factory’s Michael Kalmbach featuring Friends of The Delaware Contemporary. Artists Paula Cahill, Brian Conaty, Phyllis Gorsen, Suzy Kopf, and Gregg Morris examine geometry and linear structures while moving beyond traditional approaches to painting through their distinctive styles.
The first shape one learns to make as a child is a line, a scribble, the connection between two points. As we grow, the crayon is replaced by a pencil, the pencil by a pen, the pen by a keyboard. Sometimes the artist in us doesn’t survive beyond childhood. Sometimes the artist in us persists, and no matter what distraction or hardship comes along we keep creating. The artists featured in this exhibition have stopped at nothing to keep their creative journey alive through their “strong lines.”
