Archway Gallery presents Jane Ewen: “Intangible References” opening reception

WHEN:  Saturday 5:00pm

WHERE: Archway Gallery, 2305-A Dunlavy St, Houston, TX 77019, Get Directions >

COST:  Admission is free

DETAILS:  Archway Gallery presents “Intangible References,” featuring new paintings by Jane Ewen. As an abstract expressionist painter, Ewen creates paintings that are experiences in themselves, not representations of something that has been experienced before. For her latest show, “Intangible References,” Ewen retreated to her studio and listened to many genres of music while she created — Classical, Blues, Jazz, Rock. These paintings are Ewen’s response to the complexity of a symphony, the textures of blues, the colors of jazz, the rhythm of a rock concert. Spend a few minutes with a painting; see if a relationship develops. Perhaps these works will offer you that intangible reference you are seeking.

Ewen will be at the opening reception to visit with guests and will discuss the exhibition in a talk. The artist will host a performance of the Rice Jazz Ensemble and will have a technique demonstration. Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until December 5.
