INTOXICATED BY COLOR: NEW PAINTINGS BY EDIE MANEY
Edie Maney’s Intoxicated by Color exhibition showcases her distinct abstract expressionistic style, reminiscent of one of her key artistic mentors, Helen Frankenthaler, and from the many years she studied with esteemed Nashville-based artist Anton Weiss. Starting in a chaotic manner with layer after layer of color and strokes, she works toward balancing intensity and motion. Using brayers, credit cards, squeegees, and fingertips, in addition to brushes, she creates her art with an intuitive painterly approach to each piece.
The new works are a spectrum of colorful painterly abstracts, some on canvas and some on small marble squares. Maney’s paintings express through color and technique--sometimes bold, sometimes subtle--her visual perceptions gleaned from her extensive travels and other encounters. The exhibit will continue through October 28, during regular gallery hours, 11-5:00 pm, Tuesday-Saturday at 215 5th Avenue of the Arts, North.
The Arts Company will present a Fresh Art Friday featuring an informative and insightful art talk with one of the gallery’s favorite artists discussing her current exhibition, Intoxicated by Color: New Paintings by Edie Maney.
