Wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served. The artists will be present, so please take the opportunity to ask questions about their work.
Tom Holmes is a sculptor working in stone, metal, wood, light, ice and water. He works seasonally, depending on available materials and the weather, which strongly influence his work.
Laurie Kalb works in oils, pastel, and cold wax medium, drawing from her life’s experience to explore the relationship between art and the soul. Kalb’s work often contains abstracted vessels, which form energetic compositions of line and color, crowding the space created on the canvas while playing with the viewer’s sense of harmony and visual tension.
Tom Holmes’s abstract sculptures interspersed with Laurie Kalb’s paintings add solidity to the exhibition, grounding the viewer and offering a unique reference point. Although these artists have distinct styles, this exhibition merges their work seamlessly into a lively exploration of form, line, and the relationship between the space on the canvas and the space we occupy.
