How often do you get to view a collection of art that moves you in the purest of ways with warmth, passion, and determination? I appreciate the creative risk these 5 improvisational abstract painters took in pushing the boundaries of authentic expression with the end result in their work. As artists, they manifest their personal stories, personal journeys, and personal challenges in their work with great courage.
Spending time with these artists over a 2 day event, I reflect on feeling energized, optimistic, and proud. Congratulations to the artists – Alphonso Acosta, Linda Garcia, Rima Muna, Devin Oatway, and Nash Rightmer; and to the curator, Erik ReeL, a vision well executed!
