For her 11th consecutive solo show at Center Gallery in Glen Arbor, Maple City painter Margo Burian breaks with her tradition of landscape painting, and for the first time shows a group of mixed media abstracted paintings on panel. This exhibition of new works opens Friday, July 6 with a 6pm reception.
Burian has traditionally worked in oil paint. In these new works, she explores water- based media including acrylic paint, graphite, collage, and image transfer. “The paintings are deeply layered and consist of multiple sessions in the studio,” she said. “They’re derived from a combination of observation, memory, sketch, and photo reference. Often times the original image becomes lost in the layering process until it becomes a separate image onto itself.”
Center Gallery’s show of work by Margo Burian continues through July 12. Center Gallery is open daily 11am – 5pm. For more information go to www.lakestreetstudiosglenarbor.com, or call 231-334-3179.
