Rhythms features the acrylic paintings of Ron Hall and watercolor paintings of Amy Green. The show runs through August 4 at YoloArts’ Gallery 625 in Woodland.
The exhibition features the artwork of two artists who share the rhythms of color and movement while working in different styles and media.
Hall creates art that uses vibrant, free-flowing color bordering on pop, abstract, and surrealism and loves to paint musicians and dancers, capturing the coloration, grace, movement, and emotion of a performance in progress. After retiring from a career in the fire service, Hall returned to the study of art, and earned degrees in Art History and Arts and Humanities. He has taught art and is active in regional arts organizations, and currently serves on the Rancho Cordova Arts board of directors.
“I am inspired to create art that captures people in an intimate moment or setting. Whether a musician, a ballerina, or a person sipping tea in the early hours of the morning – I love to create art with a sense of rhythm and flow,” Hall said in a recent statement.
Green is a northern California artist whose artwork includes watercolor paintings, intaglio etchings, and ink drawings. She received an MFA from California College of the Arts in Film/Video and Performance Art, and a BFA in Sculpture from California State University Chico.
In her artist statement Green stated “I love the intersection between nature, fantasy, science, and spirit… and to create odd or challenging surrealist work when I’m not making meditative abstract art. Having both satisfies my intellect as well as my spirit.”
A video of the entire exhibition, created by Tomas Montoya, will premier at yoloarts.org/online-galleries on June 22 and all art work will be available for viewing in an online exhibition in the same location through August 4. Due to current Covid-19 restrictions, there will not be an opening reception.
Artist talks will be filmed and available for viewing at yoloarts.org featuring Hall’s talk in June, and Green’s talk in July.
