CRS (Center for Remembering & Sharing) presents NEW FLOWERS, an exhibition of recent paintings by Robin Ann Meyer and Rie Nishimura.
There will be an Opening Reception on Saturday, May 17, 2014 from 7 – 8:30 pm with a short, live painting demonstration of their technqiues from 7 – 7:30 pm. The exhibition will remain on display through June 30, 2014.
CRS patrons will recall Ms. Nishimura's 2012 exhibition at CRS of colorful abstract paintings inspired by the sea. Her newest paintings continue her method of finishing her canvases in one session but now she paints with her bare hands, resulting in more dynamically complex and energetic compositions. Ms. Meyer, by contrast, has painted the works in this show while holding her brush with her feet. Each strives to use her entire body in the painting process and arrive at an organic and intuitive representation of her feeling in the moment.
