Betsy Cain: Selections — Friday, September 7th, 7 pm

Betsy Cain: Selections

Please join us for the opening reception Friday, September 7, at 7 pm
Florida Mining Gallery, 5300 Shad Road, Jacksonville, Florida 32257

Abstraction and figuration combine with the energetic application of fluid oil paint to canvas, yupo paper, or board.  This installation reveals works from 2006 through 2011, including many from her recent ambitious and well received solo exhibition, In Situ, at the Telfair Museum Jepson Center which celebrated Cain’s three decades as an independent artist in Savannah, Georgia.

Cain’s earlier work explodes with an abstract expressionist vibrancy, combining delicious colors with bold, fluid strokes of paint.  More recent works show a confident restraint and an attention to the overall and more detailed fabrication of the finished piece including her innovative cut outs.  The cut outs recall earlier work though are edited and applied to clean wooden panels cut into deliberate shapes that float off the wall surface.

Come for the art and stay for a glass of beer or wine and a delicious snack from local favorites, On the Fly food truck!
