1st Annual Abstract and Stylized Art Invitational at Moon Lee Gallery

Eve by Tim Haines

The Main Street Gallery will hold its’ first annual abstract and stylized art invitational in the Moon Lee Gallery this December. Artists participating in this show include Sandy Obester, Tim Haines, Kim Stokely, Debbie Councilman, Lydea Roach, Judy Anderson, Cathy Anderson, Jeanette Logue, Beth Bauer, Karen Boltz, Kathleen Evans, Karen Chamberlain, Kim Burditt, Louise Tuthill, Evelyn Mercer Ward, Daphne Wetzel, and Barbara Bailey, among others.

A stylized approach in art involves viewing the subject as a collection of flat shapes, with no modeling or shading. Color is used to make a dramatic or unusual statement rather than adhering to realism in hue and tone. Stylization can run the gamut from recognizable object to a fragmented, barely recognizable subject. This approach to the subject began with the Impressionists, who used light and color to deconstruct the object. Postimpressionists, such as Gauguin and Matisse, continued this progression, using flat areas of dramatic color to act as a symbolic communication. The Modern Art movement continued to deconstruct the subject so that the end result was nonrepresentational and nonobjective; a purely abstract approach to art that emphasized design and color rather than a subject.

The Trinity Gallery is bursting with wondrous gifts and treasures created by our many local and regional talented crafters and artists. It is just the place to find special gifts for the holidays.
