Radiant Visions by Cathy Breslaw Friday, May 10, 2013 through Friday, June 28, 2013 Frehner Gallery MAC Frehner Gallery 1315 11th Street, Monroe Lower Level The work of this California artist engages materiality in many forms. It has its roots in childhood and the family fabric business. Spending a multitude of hours around fabrics of all kinds - seeing and feeling colors, textures and patterns presented on an array of fabric types, made an indelible impression which followed her into adulthood and into the art she creates. So, it is not surprising that given her years in southern California, light and space, mixed in with materials, urged her to create mostly large scale wall, floor and installation works that reflect the ephemeral transparent lightness of the environment in which she lives, highlighting the fragility of life. Many of the works draw inspiration from her abstract drawings with ideas stemming from her imagination about space and time. The drawings, created on transparent paper, plastic or mesh, are sometimes embellished with other materials which act as paintbrush to describe a world of movement, in two dimensional space. Color plays an integral role in enhancing the atmospheric transparency of the materials. The work, sharing forms of painting, sculpture, and installation leads the viewer to take an intimate look at seemingly ordinary materials that because of what has been done to them, transcends their function. OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, May 10, 2013 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM Artist Gallery Talk: 5:30 PM

Kristin, You are right it has been a while since I posted on ActiveRain. I just posted this to see if I still could. I wasn't getting the connections that I had hoped for, so if you have any ideas please let me know how to do a better job.
