Waves of Spring: Antia Lewis

Opening reception and meet the artist Friday, March 13 from 6-9 p.m.

Pulling, pushing, and scraping, Anita Lewis moves color across the canvas without a brush, highlighting the layers of receding metallic colors, pops of bold color, and a texture that needs to be seen in person. The pieces also have an emphasis on structure. Lewis will frequently use panels of metal to break up the canvas and create a dynamic composition. That’s not all! Spending nearly 20 years living in Europe, Lewis says, “As a unifying element of cultures, my art should serve as a never-ending inspiration of moods, memories, emotions and experiences.”
