Take a break from the frenetic pace of modern life with a visit to the summer exhibit at
the YWCA Women’s Art Gallery, featuring four local women artists whose work rests
firmly outside the figurative realm.
On a mission to provide a space for art exhibitions by and about women and provide
educational programs for diverse audiences, the YWCA Women’s Art Gallery presents
Driven to Abstraction featuring the artwork of:
- Angela Lotito Mehter is inspired by the many unanswered questions posed by the
artistic process. In art, there are always questions, but there are never complete
answers, leading to endless possibilities and surprises. Angela’s recent paintings are
experiments in abstraction, using line and movement to divide space and highlight
- CK Nichelson is fascinated by the interaction between viewer and painting, noting
that abstract work invites contemplation. She works in new acrylic materials, and
poured medium, applying them layer by layer in an ongoing “conversation” with
the work. Her paintings represent the very essence of being human. They are a
collection of experiences, with unique layers-both transparent and opaque.
- Donna Talerico’s recent work pushes the boundaries between representation and
abstraction, forging into lost edges and less articulation of subject matter. She loves
the total freedom that abstract painting allows. Her work is unrestrained, with bold
color and loose brushwork. She uses this more spontaneous painting style to
celebrate shapes and patterns of color and light in a process she finds both
inspirational and totally seductive.
- Liz Zorn’s recent works are somewhat of an amalgamation-a fusion of style and
technique that has been her signature for the past twenty-five years. She
incorporates both texture and layers of color in paintings that range from hard line
color field landscapes to non-objective monochromatic gestures. Liz keeps her work
fresh and herself honest by painting whatever is in her head at the moment.
Driven to Abstraction opens on Friday, June 12th and runs through September 10, 2015.
The YWCA Women’s Art Gallery is located on the second floor of the YWCA, 898 Walnut
Street (on the corner of 9th and Walnut), downtown. Gallery hours are Monday through
Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., or by special arrangement – please call 241-7090 for more
