Event Description

Florence Moonan of Stockton, NJ, Mixed Media Paintings Exhibition will have it's Opening Reception: March 23, from 6 - 8 pm. I have an intuitive approach to painting as I make decisions and take advantage of chance revelations. My work is informed by travel, family history, the natural world, and, above all, music. I currently work with Venetian plaster on board. A unique exploration emerges following the process of adding and subtracting layers. The plaster's special quality helps me produce surfaces that are immediately appealing and as sensuous as a beautiful aria. The three new works completed in 2017: "Eastsound (Orcas)", "Moonlight (Orcas"), and "Summit (Orcas)" celebrate the memory of my youngest sister, and the few days three sisters reunited on Orcas Island-the entrancing island she called home. Typically, I listen to music as I work. "Isolde's Vision", "Poor Butterfly" and "Round About" are examples of work inspired by music and theater.
