The exhibit named “Summer’s Edge” at Louis Jane Studio in Old Pasadena features “the personal relationships of five artists to the natural world. The twenty works in ‘Summer’s Edge’ explore inner connections to the natural realm in a wide array of styles and voices.”
Exhibitor Janet Bothne states that color is her “natural anti-depressant.”
I see color akin to music. It’s no coincidence they both can be described in terms such as soft, loud or bright—they have keys and tones. I experience muted color as chords and saturated color as crescendo.
Artist Emily Halpern says, “My paintings map my inner world.…I intend to engage by slipping away, leaving gaps for viewers to fill in, as a springboard for their own imaginations.”
Other exhibiting artists are J. Cheryl Bookout, Sandra Mueller, Bettina Staib, Louise Jane Wannier, and Monica Wyatt.
Installation artist and sculptor MaryLinda Moss curates.
