IN THIS TOGETHER
Group Exhibition of work by all Kobalt Artists
RECEPTION FRIDAY AUGUST 23, 7-9pm
If you missed any of Kobalt’s 2019 featured solo or group exhibitions, “In This Together” is the perfect overview of the summer season at the gallery, and an opportunity to see the latest work from all of your favorite Kobalt artists. All twelve roster artists participate in an extraordinary exhibition of original contemporary works covering a broad range of media and techniques.
From Abstract to Realism, Kobalt’s painters offer a variety of styles and subjects on canvases large and small. Paul Balmer’s rich colorful surfaces are etched and sanded to reveal hidden layers beneath the intricate lines that detail his subjects. Sean Flood’s stunning urban-scapes capture the intensity of the city in grand scale, while a more tranquil tone is conveyed through Jessica Pisano’s natural landscapes and portrayals of birds in flight. Ted Polomis paints in a classic style creating compositions with vintage objects and toys that often come together with a splendid twist. Inspired by generations-old Kodachrome slides and photographs, Jessica Brilli combines American Realism and 20th century graphic design aesthetics in her work. Abstract painter Helen Shulman works in oil and cold wax to create surfaces rich in texture, line and color that reflect the variations in our natural environment. Painting in acrylic and mixed media, Milenko Katic’ gives us a glimpse of the world through his eyes, at times with childlike naivety, and other times through a sophisticated lens. Watercolorist Tim Saternow’s architectural landscapes of New York City and Outer Cape Cod are contemplations of the timeworn structures that define their respective locales. Provincetown encaustic artist Cherie Mittenthal often enriches her paintings with other materials added to numerous layers of pigmented beeswax. Dave Laro brings his range of skills together with work that taps into pop culture and contemporary commentary by combining silkscreening, wood working and assemblage in his unique pop constructions. Assemblage artist Duncan Johnson creates extraordinary pieces from reclaimed wood, each with unique qualities, characteristics and histories. Joe Landry’s hyperrealist sculptures of both urban and rural buildings are often enhanced with cleverly engineered optics within the structures themselves that trick the eye and delight the soul. Join us, and together we’ll help you discover dozens of options and endless reasons why art is good for the soul!
