presents Balancing the Abstract this October
Painter Jill Krasner and jewelry artist Lisa Flam Corin will be featured in Balancing the Abstract, which runs from September 29 through October 26, at Art Uptown. The gallery welcomes the public to meet the artists
at a reception on October 5 from 6 to 9 p.m.
“My concept behind this show was to create a collection of paintings that would explore the balance between large and small objects, positive and negative spaces, realism and abstraction,” states Krasner. “I did not limit my palette and I deliberately varied the sizes of my substrates, again challenging myself to create a body of work that would balance — in spite of all the variables.”
Lisa Flam Corin approaches the subject of balance from her lifelong practice of yoga. Her new series of silver pendants incorporates depictions of specific poses. “The yogic poses represent the essence of inner strength and confidence while the backgrounds on which I place them represent the abstract, textured, and sometimes chaotic world that we live in,” she
In addition to the featured work of Krasner and Flam Corin, the diverse talents of all of Art Uptown’s artists will be on display at the reception and through the month.
Regular gallery hours are Monday - Thursday, 11 - 5; Friday, 11 - 9; Saturday, 11 - 5; and Sunday 12 - 5.
