Color Refined features the abstract works of Beatrice Riese, Siri Berg, Gabriele Evertz, Rella Stuart-Hunt, and Rachel Beach. Born outside of the United States, each woman emigrated here for various reasons – love, education, and to escape political turmoil. The women all chose New York as their home, and their mature art careers developed and flourished in the city. Color Refined focuses on each artist’s utilization and exploration of color and color theory as the main feature of her abstract work. This exhibition also celebrates the creative accomplishments of immigrants who enrich and contribute to American culture.
From November 10 – December 12 the Ewing Gallery will be exhibiting Color Refined. We will have an opening reception for the exhibition on Monday, November 10 from 5:30 – 7 PM in the Ewing Gallery. The artists will be present. On Tuesday, November 11 at 3:30 PM, we will be hosting a panel discussion with the artists of Color Refined in room 109 of UT’s Art and Architecture Building. The panel will be moderated by UT painting professor Karla Wozniak. On Wednesday, November 12 at 7:30 PM in room 109 of the Art and Architecture building Rachel Beach will be giving a lecture on her work. Beach is a New York-based sculptor.
All events are free and open to the public. Free parking for all events is available in Circle Park on Volunteer Boulevard.
Please note, the Ewing Gallery will close from November 26 – 30th in observance of the Thanksgiving Holiday.
