The Color of LightThe Village Art Circle in downtown Cary is delighted to host a two-woman exhibition of new work by members Lyudmila Tomova and Vinita Jain. Opening reception will be on Final Friday February 24 from 6 to 9pm. The show is titled, The Color of Light and reflects the artists’ interpretation of the subject of light and color as means to communicate mood and atmosphere. Both artists feature series of landscapes in different yet complimentary styles using bright and lively pallets. The show is running till March 29.
Lyudmila Tomova’s paintings are large-size watercolors reminiscing on her recent trip to Paris painted in her usual bold and impressionistic style. Her work is full of passion that celebrates rather than contemplates. It’s an impulse that captures a moment full of feeling and beauty. A fleeting moment is transformed by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles. The brush strokes are moving, pushing, emerging and overwhelming, but never still and quiet.
Vinita Jain’s works primarily with soft pastel and charcoal. She is inspired by the tension between forms, shapes and movement in the natural world, and aspires to capture this conflict and movement towards harmony through her work.
Her work is mostly inspired from nature. It is an impressionistic response to light and colors seen in nature. Rhythm, harmony movement and the use of energetic pastel strokes define her semi abstract work. Color is an important tool and it is used to convey mood and bring harmony to her work.
NOTE: The opening reception for this show was postponed due to inclement weather and rescheduled for Friday, January 13 from 6 to 8 PM.
People's Choice Awards were announced at 7 PM. Congratulations to the winners!
