On view Now: Beyond the Lines - ”Abstract” Show

Stop by Beyond the Lines Gallery to see its ”Abstract” show. It opened on March 4, and extends through March 12, 2017.
The exhibition will feature a variety of media. "I love abstract work but do not necessarily prefer it to other figurative pieces finding beauty in both," said gallerist Brittany Davis. "I enjoy seeing the textures and bold colors that tend to flow into one another moving your eye around the piece in the direction of lines and shapes that pull you closer.  Making you stop and feel an emotion rather then examine an object or form."

In a
ddition to being a successful psychotherapist, each month Terry hosts a life drawing session with a small group of artists and an artist model. “One month, we had a very different model--a dance teacher and professor of dance and film at UCLA, who curates the dance films for the Topanga Film Festival.

This woman's body was very different from most of our models, and initially I felt like I couldn't capture her lines at all. In fact, I felt like my form and drawings were breaking down and fragmenting. Later, when I looked back, I realized I had had a breakthrough in capturing the dancing and highly energetic essence of this woman in more abstract form. The result was the Unbearable Lightness. http://www.markstarlow.com/
