MILL & MAX Arts Space at Lexington Shambhala Meditation Center
Exhibit Title
Offerings: Vignettes from the Earth – watercolors by Lexington artist Deborah Slone
Exhibit Description
HOP HOURS - 4:30 - 8:30pm. Light refreshments will be provided during HOP night on May 20th. SHOW DESCRIPTION: In Middle English offering (offring) means " the presenting of something to a deity; to present, bestow, bring before". I believe each painting begins as an offering from nature, and through my painting practice I offer the gift of these moments to others, in return. I strive to capture the transitory moments when the play of light brings a leaf or a petal into sharp relief, and creates a dramatic presence that is never exactly replicated. I view my painting life as a practice of presence and observation, which for me is paramount to the final result of any of the individual paintings. I invite you to spend time with this exhibit in a similar spirit of presence and observation. Each painting is created using a multitude of glazes over a period of days. As the washes build up, the transparency of the watercolor mimics the play of light on the objects, and they become more complex, and the source of light more nuanced, over time. I attempt to present each object as is, in an imperfect state of being with many details that delight and surprise as a closer observation reveals them. This exhibit is my offering to you, and I invite you to join me! ::: The exhibition will also feature select floral works by Ikebana master Brooke Pohl. NOTE: We will also have an inventory of rare and one-of-a-kind prints of our artist's work for purchase! Located at the corner of Mill & Maxwell Streets, we have FREE PARKING and are only a 2-block walk to the heart of downtown. ::: Show Engagement: May 21 - June 30 ​Special Meet-the-Artist Reception: June 2, 4:30 - 7:30pm Watercolor Workshop with the Artist: June 11, 2 - 4pm​ Gallery is open Sat & Sun 12 - 3pm and also by appointment​ ​
