Michele Giulvezan-Tanner

June 7 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

New abstract paintings. For 35 years the human form held center stage in Michele's artistic pursuit. Then in 2020 the world shifted-with Covid it felt too risky to have models in the studio. The result was a hiatus from painting. By 2022 Michele knew she had to make a decision – either quit painting or move away from figure. The result is that Michele rekindled her love of abstraction, In many of the paintings she pushed the abstraction further by removing all recognizable subject matter, while trying to keep the 3 dimensional quality of the abstract forms. It is the "thingness" or perceived object that interests and hopefully ignites the viewer's imagination.
Exhibit runs June 7-July 31 Gallery hours Wednesday – Saturday 1-4 pm and by appointment.
