Why does color, form and balance speak to us so?
In an exhibition called “Emerge”, Sally MacGeorge has pondered this question, as she has gone back to her creative roots. What emerges on the canvas are bold, colorful, abstract works in acrylic that exudes a vibrant, positive energy. Sally is a New Zealand Artist, living in Washington DC and this is her first solo exhibition.

This exhibition will present recent oils and pastels from artist Gonzalo Ruiz Navarro about the elusive nature of color. Gonzalo finds his inspiration in how light reveals reality and how it affects the color we see in objects and landscapes. He is a realist painter but when asked about his favorite subject, he replies “color”. There are many theories about how color works in nature and how you can interpret that in a painting, but ultimately, Gonzalo finds that is something we will always try to interpret and never will be fully captured.
