Ann Lawson will be showing her art at The Ware Center, Millersville University, 42 N Prince Street, Lancaster PA. The exhibit opens Friday, September 6, with a reception from 6-8pm on the third floor of the Ware Center in the Grand Salon. The gallery will remain on display until Sept. 29.
“The Language of Color” is her first major art exhibition. Lawson explains, “The beauty of my abstract, contemporary art is that each piece is interpreted differently by the observer. Through color, lines and shapes, my works have one goal in mind: to arouse the viewer to come back again and again.”
Some of her heavy influences are many of the modern and post-modern expressionist artists of the ’60s and ’70s, primarily Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Jane Plum and Mark Rothko. By far, she says her biggest inspiration is her mother, Linda Benton McCloskey, who is also an accomplished artist.
Ann will also be exhibiting with Mixed Media Art Group at Harrisburg’s Annual Gallery Walk at the Pine Street Presbyterian Church, 310 N Third St, Harrisburg, PA on September 6, 11am – 6pm.
