Elemental: The collages of Roberta Friedman and the photographs of Roslyn Meyer
Jan. 12—29, 2012.
Opening Reception, Sun., Jan. 15, 2—5 p.m.
Roberta Friedman, a member of City Gallery, and guest artist Roslyn Meyer are presenting Elemental, the collages of Roberta Friedman and the photographs of Roslyn Meyer, from Jan.12—29, 2012. The opening reception is on Sun., Jan. 15, from 2—5 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.
Meyer’s photographs are meditations on the beauty of the natural world, both vistas and more intimate detail. Her painterly, evocative images explore the tension between surface and depth, motion and stillness, reality and abstraction.
