Abend Gallery – Sight Unseen

Curated by Alia El-Bermani

February 24 – March 25, 2017

Opening reception February 24, 6-9 p.m.

This exhibition seeks to explore the idea of what lies at the boundary of the known and unknown through representational work. This is a complex and multi-layered exhibition, one that is best explained through the words of the curator.

Artists have long created works based on the observations of what they see.  For this issue of PoetsArtists I am interested in sharing representational works that look beneath the realities of the surface and reveal a greater, hidden significance.  These artists will be peering at the mercurial boundary between the known and the unknown.  It is in this space between, that the vibration of life, of existence cannot be seen but can be felt.  How do you represent what you cannot see?  How do you paint, draw or sculpt thought or emotion, the human spirit or the supernatural?

Einstein once wrote, “The most beautiful experience we can have is in the mysterious.  It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and science.”  It is our ceaseless questioning that propels our creative endeavors and compels our viewers to pause and to feel union in the unknown.  This is where our visual language will transform to poetry.

So much of our daily lives have become superficial, from the thousands of virtual connections we call friends, to the hordes of advertising that bombard our senses.  As artists, it’s our calling to seek, and to instill deeper connections, to revel in a more meaningful existence.  Thru compassion for each other and the mysteries that tie us, we have the power to inspire.  We can have a profound impact on our society if we choose to look beneath and remind viewers of the wealth found within those depths.

Abend Gallery Fine Art was established in 1990 and offers an extensive collection of fine art from fresh, contemporary work to traditional, representational painting by national and internationally recognized professional artists.

“It’s A Small World:” Found Object Miniature and Mail Art

At Bricolage Gallery, Boulder. Guest curator Suzette Rosenthal and 10 regional artists present small 2D assemblages appropriate for mailing or mooning over.  No works exceed 62 square inches and yet are filled with compelling texture, detail, and the nostalgia associated with the increasingly dying  art of mailed communication.

Free public art reception with food, libations, special sale, and late shopping hours, 5:30 – 8:30pm, Feb. 24.
