Opening Reception: March 1 - 5:30 - 7:30pm
ArtSeed, 1931 East Spring Street, New Albany, Indiana
Please join us for our upcoming gallery exhibits. This month ArtSeed is featuring two exhibits, The Main Gallery will feature the work of Southern Indiana Painter, Dru Pilmer. The Sun Gallery will feature the work of Edwin Breton and Lee Vest both graduating BA students at Indiana University Southeast.
Dru is a Contemporary Expressionistic Abstract acrylic painter. Born in Rhode Island, raised in Mississippi, and now calls the Greater Louisville area her home. Her work as a voice teacher and former work as a professional actor/dancer, informs the improvisational approach she takes in her paintings, which are often described as energetic and bold.
Her work studies the color, emotions, and movement of energy that pulsates in the natural world. Sgraffito marks, made by scraping through wet paint, are woven into the images and are integral to her expression. These marks serve to remind the viewer that something is always happening in the physical energy fields of the painting, and between the viewer and the art when they occupy the same space. Her aim is that the feeling of improvisation and movement translated into color and form reaches the viewer, evoking emotion and something of the greater mysteries of existence, human struggles, and hope.
Home and Family are important words with very specific definitions, but BA painter Lee Vest and BA printmaker Edwin Breton explore the meaning of home and family beyond what can be found in a dictionary. In a series of oil paintings, drawings, and lithographs, Edwin and Lee show the audience what these concepts mean to them. These pieces attempt to impart the feeling of comfort one gets from being at home, and by the people, we share spaces with.
