Living Colors — an exhibit by abstract painter Evelyn Lopez de Guzman and contemporary painter Sandra Iafrate

In April, Arts in the Village Gallery presents Living Colors, a Featured Artist Exhibit by two accomplished painters Evelyn Lopez de Guzman and Sandra Iafrate, in a vivid and dynamic presentation of color, shape and our surroundings.

Evelyn Lopez de Guzman seeks to awaken feelings within the viewer to connect with nature and the modern world around us.  The energy from Evelyn’s vibrant paintings comes from an interplay of geometric shapes, color, pattern, and textural materials.  “What surrounds me visually and what stirs me emotionally, be it through sound, sight, smell or touch, I allow to guide me.”

Sandra Iafrate’s spacious canvases take the viewer on a journey of color and movement.  Applying a surrealist interpretation to subjects of flowers, foliage and landscapes as well as a lively color palette, Sandra’s paintings welcome the viewer to come in and enjoy the experience.  “Having subject matter presented in a moving, fun, or personified manner means a lot to me.”

Meet the artists and enjoy a glass of wine and light fare at a free, open to the public reception on Saturday, April 12th, from 5 – 8 p.m.  The featured artists will give a talk on their work beginning at 6 pm.
