DESCRIPTION

The three painters in this exhibition all draw from nature using improvisational techniques, but the results are widely varied.  Leslie K. Price sees nature as a metaphor for life: “I paint from some aspect of the natural world, and the uniqueness of the space, light, and color interacting with it.”  Lorna Ritz’s colorful abstractions “bring the landscape indoors.  They become windows that peer deeply into space beyond their four edges.”   Robert Straight’s creates his “own world” that draws from aspects of contemporary life.  While he uses math and science as a basis for his constructed abstractions, he embraces improvisation in the execution.
