First Friday artist’s reception from 6 to 9 p.m.
Transitions is an exhibition of works on metal by Cindy Booth and paintings by SuHua Chen Low. Their approach is to transition from what the eye sees in a landscape image to the essence and feeling of the image.
Booth provides glimpses into mysterious worlds of light, color and texture. Using solder and patinas on copper sheets, she creates art by letting go of control, allowing the materials to guide her. The results are reminiscent of fantastic landscapes and aerial views. Booth is a Westchester artist who exhibits her metal paintings and sculpture in the Tristate area.
Low, born in Taiwan, represents a unique convergence of Western oil painting technique with traditional Chinese landscape art and water and ink paintings. Low goes beyond what a camera does to show the essence of the images she paints. She learned to paint from Taiwan master artists Shih-Ciao Li and Ke-Mei Li, forming the foundation of her Western and Chinese painting works. Low has exhibited in the U.S. and Taiwan.
Small Treasures exhibits in galleries B and C, featuring small works of art and gifts, including handcrafted jewelry and ornaments for the holidays.
