Fresh Paint

Reynolds Gallery in the Fan is showing “Fresh Paint,” a group exhibit of abstract paintings. The young artists in the show were chosen for their ability to push painting in an exciting, new direction.

“We wanted to put together an exhibition of new artists who are looking at painting in a different type of way,”gallery director Bev Reynolds said. “We ended up with an amazing body of paintings. There’s a vitality to the work that is very different.”

The show features works by Calvin Burton, Carolyn Case, James Hyde, Merlin James, Jill Moser, Naomi Safran-Hon, Natalie Westbrook and Yuh-Shioh Wong. Reynolds noted that their works are highly personal. Many are also concerned with issues of environment and nature.

The show runs through March 19 at 1514 W. Main St. Hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
