Summer Perspectives & More Light to Show at Les Yeux du Monde Gallery
June 23 – August 13
Opening Reception, Friday June 23, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Les Yeux du Monde will show Summer Perspectives: Isabelle Abbot with Sarah Boyts Yoder and Cate West Zahl in the front gallery, opening June 23. Landscapist Isabelle Abbot, while still deriving her inspiration from nature — here from the beautiful blooming peach orchards in spring — is also abstracting her inspiration to more organic essences, says Gallery owner/director Lyn Bolen Warren. She notes that Sarah Boyts Yoder’s paintings are bold, curvilinear and reminiscent of the expressive bulbous colorful art of Philip Guston while Cate West Zahl’s abstracts, from her study of life with more linear and angular compositions, bring to mind the powerful art of Richard Diebenkorn.
Krista Townsend, Lichen On Rocks, 2017, oil on canvas, 36 x 36″
More Light: Paintings by Karen Blair, Ana Rendich, Krista Townsend in the rear gallery will also open June 23. Karen Blair, equally adept at painting still life, landscape and portraits, will exhibit her latest semi-abstractions rooted in garden and nature scenes. Ana Rendich, originally from Argentina, will show her hot colored abstractions — one series reminiscent of Paul Klee with its geometric, colorful dwellings, and the other more freely painted series with a musical harmony similar to the early abstract paintings of Vasily Kandinsky, says Warren. Krista Townsend’s richly textured nature and and cityscapes are grounded in her quest to explore and build bridges between the land and our place within it.
