Artist Reception October 15th 6-9 PM

Roberta Russo works intuitively, rarely starting with more than a general vision. Her finished pieces appear highly abstracted, but consistently deal with the duality and/or contradiction of body and soul.  The physical world surrounds us and impacts us in the form of our actual body, our community, our world.  Our soul, however, is nebulous.  Regardless of your preferred term or religious philosophy, our soul is what makes us who we are.  It is our spark, our vitality, our personality.

Gloria Woolley work is an expression of the mood the memories of everything she has seen from her mind. She paints loosely and dramatically, unintentional and intentional at times while using an assortment of tools in her creative process.  Gloria a teacher of the arts for over 30 years can work in any media from very large paintings on Canvas to small works which she is sharing with us in the show “On the Line”.

Refreshments Provided.
