SURFACE at Space Gallery in Denver

Space Gallery will be presenting a group exhibition entitled, SURFACE, opening Friday, September 26th.  There will be a reception for the artists on September 26th from 6:00-9:00pm. In addition to my work, this show will feature work from nine other artists: Jo Marks Aardsma, Tonia Bonnell, Michael Burnett, Nancy Charak, Sophia Dixon Dillo, Carlene Frances, Susan Gibbons, Nancy Koenigsberg, and Sharon Swidler.  SURFACE is the fifth installment of the "Art of the Real" series of exhibitions, curated by Jo Marks Aardsma.

From Space's website: "This exhibit interests itself in the 'non-objective': art that is not representational, that contains no recognizable figures or objects, art that has no intentional derivation from any concrete matter. The work for this show was selected because each artist uses the surface as a crucial element beyond a vehicle on which to apply a medium….either revealing what is behind/under the surface or concealing/altering/manipulating the surface itself and in a palette of white, black, gray, or neutral."

The four paintings from my Drift series were specifically created for this installation. The show will be up through November 1st, 2014. I hope you'll have a chance to visit the exhibition.
