Summer Expressions

In June, Arts in the Village Gallery presents Summer Expressions, a Featured Artist Exhibit showcasing the bold and energizing abstract paintings of Rebeca Roman juxtaposed with the richly muted shades of Steven Shiraishi‘s functional, nature-inspired pottery.

Rebeca Roman uses vivid color and free-flowing shapes and lines in her dynamic paintings. Working spontaneously and using a variety of methods of moving the paint, Rebeca seeks to convey a variety of emotions and concepts in her art. Contrasting colors mix together in fascinating patterns and designs, while quiet areas provide a hiatus before pushing the viewer on to continue this lively voyage.

Inspired by natural and human forms, potter Steven Shiraishi creates a fine selection of functional pottery for cooking, drinking and serving. Using white stoneware clay and colored slips, Steven throws a selection of bowls, mugs, vases, and other vessels that convey a sense of purpose and strength. Interesting color combinations of navy and matte gray contrast with muted green and rose tones to present a diverse and appealing collection.

Meet Rebeca, Steve and other gallery artists at a free open to the public Gallery Reception on Saturday, June 6th from 5-8 pm.
