Work By Charles ReiherThursday, June 6-Saturday, August 3
Public Reception for the Artist, Thursday, June 13, 7-9pm
Charles Reiher’s focus is on color and movement. He often liquefies and pours the acrylic, which helps to create movement and allows nature to participate in the painting process by deciding where the paints will flow and how they will mix together. Many of the pieces incorporate gesso, molding paste and sand to give a three dimensional feel to the paintings. Most of his paintings are so full of color and movement that they seem to embody the hectic, 24-7 connectivity of the 21st century while providing a sense of pleasantness and hope that we can survive and even enjoy the frenetic pace at which we live.
