BECKY YAZDAN : OPENING RECEPTION
Saturday, February 9, 2019 | 2:00PM - 4:00PM
We are excited to announce our first gallery exhibition of 2019 with artist, Becky Yazdan. Join us on February 9th to view Yazdan's work, listen to an artist talk, and for light refreshments.
Yazdan's Statement: "Each of my paintings tells a story. They are based on things I see, read about, and watch on TV, as well as memories of events, feelings and colors – the pink of my favorite childhood bathing suit, the first time I told a lie. Color, form and pattern combine to become conversations, expressions, and events. When I paint I try to find the balance between intuition and intellect, so that the process of painting becomes an active dialogue with the phenomena of nature. By not dictating the end result I am receptive to a deeper understanding of the world around me. The paintings are like dreams – the events of the day reorganized and combined with other events and memories until a new, often surprising, reality has taken shape. "
