Arts Community of Easton Annual Group Juried Show, "Reinvention" Opening 4/5/08

"Flower Still Life" by Maurice Utrillo, 1946

"Utrillo Impression" 21"x21", original acrylic on canvas
$250.00 available at Connexions Gallery, Easton, PA until May 11, 2008

The "assignment" for this show was to "reinvent" a vintage poster, while still staying true to the original. My choice was Maurice Utrillo's "Flower Still Life" from 1946.

This is my interpretation of the artist's piece. His is more of an "Expressionist" interpretation; i.e. harder lines and a rough feel of the still life. I wanted to create an "Impressionistic" interpretation of the image; using techniques using loose brush strokes and mixing the colors on the canvas instead of on the pallete.

Time once again for ACE's Annual Group Show at Connexions. In past years, we have focused on a "river/water" theme for this show. This year Connexions will be doing something different. We have asked artists to take vintage art posters and incorporate them into a piece of their own art in a way that creates a new piece of art.
This will be a juried show. Ingrid Renard from the Hunterton County Museum will be the juror. Stop by and enjoy the recreations of these vintage posters as interpreted by members and supporters of the Arts Community.A portion of the proceeds will go towards the ACE general fund.
