Kim McAninach, a member of the National Association of Women Artists and American Women Artists, currently works in Stony Point, NY and Siesta Key, FL. Through the expressive use of brush and palette knife, she conveys an emotion, a mood and the pure joy of color. McAninach has exhibited across the United States including Provincetown, Massachusetts; Carnegie, Pennsylvania; and Washington DC. “Her work is fresh and blurs the line between abstract and representational, a style we see more people looking to collect,” says Molly Lindberg, Assistant Director.
Donna Straw paints with a hard edge, which she refers to as modeling and taping. This laborious technique renders crisp and clean lines. From this structure, she explores a range of colors from blues to metallic gold. She takes inspiration from the landscape around her, yet she says, “regardless of what I have seen, the work is a stylized interpretation of the real as well as the imagined.”
Anita Lewis is based in Oceanside, California, and the team discovered her abstract oil paintings while exhibiting at the internationally acclaimed art fair, Artexpo, in 2019. Her painting life has led her to exhibitions in Italy, Germany, Argentina, and all over the US. Anita’s paintings explore texture and are characterized by an ethereal surface. Gwyn McAllister wrote, “there’s a clean, integrated look to the work, despite the fact that each piece is very complex in its construction.”
Gallery Owner Nikki Sedacca explains that they are always on the search for new, fresh talent. A summer of research and collaboration has led to a Season Preview offering an exciting exploration of color. “Each year, we grow as a gallery and cultural destination. We think about what not only our clients will love, but also what will help us contribute to the larger world of art.”
