Please join us for Latitudes - Mind & Matter featuring the work of four artists: Elizabeth daCosta Ahern, Karen Hubacher, Celia Pearson, and Larry Schroth.
Boston-based Elizabeth daCosta Ahern is a seasoned traveler. Whether in Portugal, Italy, or Greece, she formulates ideas for her paintings from a compelling need to shape and abstract the memory of her experiences. Process is central to her creative exploration. It leads to an intuitive level where she believes the painting paints itself -- transforming land and sea into veils of color and light.
Washington, DC artist Karen Hubacher's
multi-layered works vibrate with color and recall the lush patchwork of this region's farmland. For Hubacher, geography and the human psyche are intertwined. Patterns of land, water and wind resonate in the mind and soul.
Last summer photographer Celia Pearson went to Taos, New Mexico with few expectations and no notion of how or if the journey might affect her. What she found was the freedom of an
unobstructed view and the enticement of a new palette. And she fell in love with dirt. This new body of work is a glimpse of the region honed by Pearson's sure eye.
Ahern, Hubacher and Pearson find their initial
inspiration in the physical landscape and move beyond. Larry Schroth's journey starts from within and moves outward. His is a highly personal landscape. What matters to Schroth are the qualities of paint and the act of
painting. Working from a very quiet personal space with no preconceived notions he remains alert as the image unfolds. In Latitudes - Mind & Matter, we have orchestrated an
exhibit remarkable for its richness in color, texture and light.
