“In keeping with the rich and storied tradition of abstract expressionist exhibitions at Ashawagh Hall, a diverse group of artists will present Mostly Abstract V,” Beth Barry, who is included in the show, shared. “These artists create work that is a visceral and emotional response to the world, not a literal one.”
“My work continues to shift to reflect a freer ‘unedited’ style,” DeCanio shared. “The layers are all still there but the textures and texts that might have been hidden in the past have become more apparent and form an integral part of the visible final image. I’m allowing the viewer to come into an intimate space not shared before. It’s been a bit of a challenging journey but very exciting.”
The pop up art show will be on display on Saturday, October 7 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Sunday, October 8 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Monday, October 9 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. An opening reception will be held on Saturday from 5 to 7 p.m.
“The paintings and sculptures are an external expression of an internal, intuitive process,” added Barry.
Admission to Mostly Abstract V is free.
