Crowell Gallery presents works of Karma Kitaj, Sharon Myers

NEWFANE — This June, the Crowell Gallery at Moore Free Library will be exhibiting the work of two artists, each unique in their expression but similar in their love of color.

Karma Kitaj works with pigment using encaustic, acrylic, oil, cold wax, and mixed media, such as burnt shellac, horsehair, and india ink. She delights in unusual color compositions, and in this exhibit, the primary colors of red, blue, and yellow dominate her canvas.

Sharon Myers is a returning artist. This year she combines the magic of color and the impact of light between fabrics deepen and change the effect of each.

“Common in both artists work is how the use of color creates emotions and perceptions in the eyes of the viewer,” organizers say. “Visitors will feel activated and energized by the combined works of these two collaborating artists.”

A reception will be held on Saturday, June 3, from 1 to 3 p.m.

The library and gallery hours are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, 1 to 5 p.m., Thursdays, 1 to 6 p.m., and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
