The Center for the Arts is thrilled to be exhibiting the work of two talented local artists, Lourdes Morales and Abbie Steiner, and invites the community to join us for an opening reception during Arts Night Out on March 8, 2019, from 5-8pm. The art will be available for public viewing in March and April of 2019.
Lourdes Morales’ subject matter evokes spaces of "interior/exterior" visual aspects. Her work dips freely into the realms of abstraction, figuration, surrealism, pop art, and spiritual expression. She also takes from the German Expressionists the vortex of perspective that gives us the sense of walking through unrecognizable spaces.
Abbie Steiner’s “The Aleph Bet Bestiary” (2002-2019) is a response to the tradition of bestiaries and illuminated alphabets, and she creates whimsical prints suitable for animal lovers of all ages. Steiner’s version of the Hebrew alphabet is inspired by an interest in medieval art and illuminated manuscripts, and her lifelong fascination with both Judaism and animals.
This opening is sponsored in part by ConVino Wine Bar and River Valley Co-op.
On March 8, join us for a first glimpse of this exhibition, meet both artists, enjoy light refreshments, and tour the beautiful space at 33 Hawley St! Free parking.
