Press release

City Gallery is presenting New Members/ New Work, the collages of Roberta Friedman and the paintings of Kathy Kane, from Jan. 6 through Jan. 30, 2011. The opening reception is on Sat., Jan. 8, from 3—6 p.m. There will be an informal discussion with the artists on Sun., Jan. 23, at 2 p.m.

Friedman’s watercolor collages transform papers and natural found objects into layered paintings that explore and celebrate the wondrous unpredictability of water-based media. Her vision is to contemplate and re-imagine the natural layering of the landscape—its grandeur and its serenity—through texture, light and color.

Kane is a Connecticut based painter. In this body of work, the paintings reflect with simple structure the personal observations of her daily life and the input of media. The surprising results are works that are dance-like, musical and rhythmic.
