|John Bayalis, "Vacation's End"|
|Rick Reeves, Fruit and Shell|
|Ann Sklar, "Orange Thread"|
This acrylic abstract still life by Ann Sklar is at the other end of the tabletop world. Very conceptual, and an absolute standout in terms of color. Looking a bit like a color-field painting, the chromatic intelligence in this painting is breath-taking.
Congratulations to the five artists and to Donna Gordon for a fine show.
|Donna Gordon, "Leap!"|
This isn't part of the show, but it merits mention. It is the latest bronze sculpture by Donna Gordon of a figure of a man taking a daring jump. This is the kind of piece that must be seen in person to be appreciated. It has a classical aura to it, with force, and an ethereal lightness that sings out for the viewer to dare and reach in their own lives. Beautiful.
The Gallery is at 625 Central Avenue, St. Pete.
