Art Opening @ NCL: Organic Explorations

August 9, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Location: Curtis Gallery

Heide Follin & Ellen Schiffman present Organic Explorations

Opening reception Thursday, August 9, 6:00 – 8:00 PM
A Q&A with the artists will begin at 6:30 PM.
Everyone Welcome!

Curator Statement: Let the adventure begin. Before us are two artists inspired by their observation of organic and symmetrical forms in nature and their travels for discovery. As if with a map and compass, the art of putting paint to paper or assigning fiber to a matrix is an exploration of the medium and technique. The artist must find the way to communicate their discoveries.

Heidi applies her paints as a construction of color, abstract, yet quite literal. Ellen gathers her materials into white and neutral dimensional assemblies. The power of layered colors compliments the sense of textured white forms. The results are similar in their exuberance, but not the same.

Look closely for the connectivity of patterns and textures. As explorers of their medium, both artists have enabled the viewer to react to natural phenomena in a different way. Enjoy the journey.


Exhibition curated by Annamari Mikkola and Gregg Welz
