Flinn Gallery Opens Last Show of the Season

On Thursday, May 9 “Time and Place,” the final show of the Flinn Gallery’s 19th anniversary season, opens and features works by four artists who direct their talents to present individual impressions of spaces they encounter in their daily lives. Each transmutes perceptions with a different style and creates works that reflect the interests, concerns, and beliefs that drive their creativity. Frances Ashforth’s paintings of horizons, rock formations, and nature’s motion highlight her environmental focus. Lori Glavin paints abstract recollections of her domestic and garden worlds with attention to the accumulated clutter that inevitably attaches to familiar surroundings. Justin Kim uses his memories of specific places and reconstitutes colorful scenes according to his perceptions of the experience. Shona Macdonald presents reflective landscapes of nature’s transience that are almost ethereally charged. The paintings invite viewers to regard familiar spaces in new ways. read more...
