Opening Reception for "Breathing Room: Recent Works by Lydia Kinney"
Thursday, September 5, 2019
Join us on Thursday, September 5, during Amherst Arts Night Plus, for the opening reception of our new exhibit, "Breathing Room: Recent Works by Lydia Kinney". Stop by Amherst Town Hall, 5-8pm, to meet Lydia and see her paintings.
A departure from her smaller works on paper and larger canvas pieces, a new studio has provided the artist with traction and freedom to create larger paintings and drawings on wood panels. The resulting work shown (2018-2019) is free to be sparse, lush, dark, and electrified. Equal parts articulated fictional interiors and fully abstract studies on color and texture, these paintings exemplify the foundation to continue a realized path: How to move forward while living with ambivalence, how to harmonize without compromise.
