Artist Reception - Winter Invitational 2013
The 9 East Contemporary Art Exhibition \" WINTER INVITATIONAL 2013 \" will feature a wide range of works in concept, media and style. The Formalist, Abstract Impressionist painting of Richard Vaux, the detailed, nature inspired work by Sandra Benny created using colored pencil media and an amazing painting by Ewa K.A. Alvarez inspired by imaginary microscopic forms add to the surrealist dimension of the exhibition. The pit fired clay carved sculpture of Hugh McElroy\'s native American influenced ceramic series, an oil painting inspired by microscopic images of cancer cells by Puneeta Mittal and a sculpture that playfully deals with social commentary by John Fink add interesting content to the show. The exceptional drawing and painting of concepts dealing with the human figure by Robert Carter, the organically carved sculpture by John Cino, the mixed media layered photo transfer painting by Sylvia Harnick, the geometric relief with tooled, burnished metals by Joanne Klein, the painted steel primary structure by Charles Reina and the dance inspired clay sculpture by Barbara Karyo are exciting additions to this invitational exhibition.
The color photo / encaustic of Sandra Carrion, the surrealist painting of West Coast painter Joe Vaux, the provocative digital photograph by Agnieszka Serafin Wozniak, the pop surrealist painting by Kim Gordon, the photographic work by Lois Youmans dealing rooted in the exploration of the human condition and the poetic charcoal composition by Dawn Lee dealing with the dynamics of natural phenomena round out this impressive exhibition of 18 professional artists.
