Art Opening: Impasto, Fri. March 4
Impasto, an exhibition featuring work by two Coalition Gallery artists for 2010-2011, opens Friday March 4.
An opening reception will take place from 6 to 9PM on the 4th.
Info on Impaso's Artists: Dimitri Pavlotsky (it looks like domain name for site just expired) and Jori Foreman
Curated by Allison Stites, Impasto is an exhibition featuring works by these two “painterly” painters. Both Pavlotsky and Foreman create works which thrive within the materiality of paint, referencing a number of sources, from traditional figure painting and Abstract Expressionism, to the street art of Chicago. Though Pavlotsky nods to representation while Foreman navigates abstraction, the painters share a fondness for process and layers which manifests in sculptural low-relief on the canvas.
Opening reception Friday, March 4, 2011 (6:30 – 9:00pm)
Impasto continues through Friday, April 8, 2011.
