Amy Sabrin’s bravura approach to color is on full display in her new exhibition, In the Night Garden. Inspired by late-autumn plein air painting excursions to fading community gardens, Sabrin returned to her studio to further explore this motif. Her increasingly abstract acrylic and watercolor paintings address themes such as the cycle of life, beauty in death, and all the secret things we cannot see at work just below a garden’s surface or in a garden at night. Sabrin’s vibrant palette is inspired by the radiance of the October sun warming up loamy dirt, zinnias glowing in the dusk, shadows cast by the full moon, and the ochre-tinged stalks of drooping sunflowers. Experience the joyous colors, bold composition, and glowing light of Sabrin’s work.
