Light & Abstraction: Ann Carstensen, Leslie Ebert, and Diana Milia
Light & Abstraction explores the relationship between painting, photography, and abstract imagery. “Artist Leslie Ebert uses Macro digital photography to dissect light waves; she ‘follows the light’ to make visible the interconnectedness of our world. Painter Diana Milia layers her compositions with collage, peelings, and scribbles. As viewers contemplate the surface of her works, they are invited to free associate and develop their meanings informed by her spontaneous marks. Ann Carstensen’s practice is driven by the visual and tactile quality of materials she collects. She describes light as her ‘ultimate media’ and savors the process of developing her work layer by layer to reveal the radiance below the surface,” Program and Public Art Manager, Kelsey Ferreira states. “While they work independently, these three artists also come together for a monthly critique session, providing feedback and support to one another throughout the artistic process, which the public will be invited to during the run of the exhibition.”
A Friday opening will be held on March 9, from 5 to 7 p.m. The Arts Council will provide light appetizers and beverages for the viewing, along with mingling with the artists. On March 28, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the artists will be on hand for Lunch & Learn: The Art of Critique. Please bring a lunch and the Arts Council will provide beverages and dessert. Then on April 13, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. a second Lunch & Learn: Artist Talk will be held with each of the artists on hand to talk about their process, vision, and technique.
Gallery hours will be Tuesday through Friday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
