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.

At Bricolage Gallery, Boulder.

Thank You Lydia Pottoff for a great presentation!

Last night at our monthly member’s meeting at the Great Frame Up (430 Main St, Longmont, CO 80501), Lydia Pottoff gave a demonstration and talk about using pastel paints.

She discussed the types of paints she uses, the paper and other techniques. She also discussed how she works plein air painting. 

Be sure to join us next month on February 8th at 6:30pm for our Artists’ Social where we will be using color pencils to draw wrapped candy as our subject.  We will also have an art swap, mini show (with prizes!) and a raffle!
