November show: Journeys in Color

The power of color is clearly demonstrated at Artists' Gallery where two regional artists, Sheila Letven and Florence Moonan are showing their expressive art from November 9 through December 2, 2007. The public is invited to meet the artists at an opening reception on Saturday, November 10, 6 - 9 p.m.

Both award-winning painters share a mutual interest in the process of exploring color and texture as a means of personal expression.


"Starburst"
oil by Sheila Letven

Multimedia artist Letven is showing oils on canvas along with small circus and box constructions. Her subjects have appeared and reappeared constantly throughout her work. Natural forms, wild animals, circus figures, and landscapes with intertwining plants have been entry points, but the start is not particularly the direction a painting will go; it often surprises her and takes a different route. For Letven, painting is like a journey into color and dreams, where one is alternately a participant as well as a spectator.

“Starting out with each new canvas and ending up with an unexpected surprise is exactly what the journey is all about,” she explained.

"Speranza Mia"
Mixed Media by Florence Moonan


Moonan’s works add another dimension to the Xing Series a body of work painted in her earthy and emblematic abstract expressionist style.

“I was looking for inspiration when I pulled out the torn and tattered Italian grammar book my mother gave me when I was a young girl,” she said. The book, written in the early 20th century, contained a chapter with examples of common and useful Italian and English letters. Moonan adds, “Of particular interest to me were the love letters flavored with archaic expressions which reminded me of little operas.”

This tactile connection to her past made an immediate impact on the direction of her work. The painting’s two dramatic central panels are set between harmonious panels on either side like theater curtains or book covers.
