On June 3rd, Meyer Vogl Gallery will present its next exhibition, Bright Ideas, which pairs the artwork of Diane Eugster and Andrew Portwood. The gallery will kick things off with an opening celebration from 5 pm to 8 pm. The exhibition will remain on display through June 24th.
Here’s what Meyer Vogl Gallery had to say about the artists:
“Although Portwood paints mostly abstractly and Eugster often finds inspiration in the human figure, there is a unifying element in their work: Both artists are fueled by imagination and creativity. Refusing to be categorized, they continue to push and explore in their practice. To view the work of Eugster and Portwood is to enter their dream worlds, to accept an invitation to a place where big, bright ideas are born.
New Orleans-based Andrew Portwood’s paintings are personal statements rendered through a dialogue between materials, echoes of his own personal experiences, and the emotions connected to those experiences. ‘This is a sampling of a daily visual diary,’ says Portwood about his work for the show. ‘It’s a shared morning song of visual notes, an abstract of my own order and liking, crafted with paint on canvas.’
Diane Eugster’s work is recognized for its contemporary impressionistic style. Says Eugster: ‘Blending the real world with the abstract, creating an open-ended story. Using all my collective skills to transpose the emotions in my heart into visual language. This is why I paint.'”
Meyer Vogl Gallery is located at 122 Meeting Street. You can learn more at meyervogl.com.
