Exhibit opens First Friday, June 5
Paintings, Sculpture, and a Collaborative Work by Ann Provan and Ursula Schneider will be on display at the Buster Levi Gallery from Saturday, June 6, through Sunday, June 28. The Buster Levi Gallery, at 121 Main St. in Cold Spring, is open Friday through Sunday from noon to 6 p.m., and by appointment. An opening reception is on Friday, June 5, from 6 to 8 p.m.
Ann Provan is showing cutout-shaped paintings in acrylic that have geometric box-like compositions and illogical perspective. Several colorful, small wood sculptures are also included.
Ursula Schneider presents new acrylic paintings on nylon fabric that continue her interest in geometric structures and observation of nature. Starting with detailed drawings of plants and shells, she develops multiple versions of each drawing into larger paintings that combine the realistic images with striking geometric patterns in bold saturated color.
Provan and Schneider attended the San Francisco Art Institute and have each exhibited in the U.S. and Europe, including a two-person show at the Ruth Baggett Gallery in Paducah, Kentucky, in 2014, and Schneider’s woodcuts were featured at the Kentler International Drawing Space in Brooklyn in 2014.
