In The Bank Vault For March and April - Solo Exhibit by Rebecca Lesny

Rebecca Lesny

"It has been quite a while since I have done an art show or any major display of my work, the reason being that I have fallen in love: with libraries! I am currently a full-time graduate student with Drexel University's iSchool of Information Science and Technology. While at first, when I began my graduate program, I was afraid that I would not be able to paint at all, I have found instead that my drive to become a fully-fledged librarian has lent a great deal of extra fluidity to my work. I now see my work as being a release, a chance to relax and step away form the stress of schoolwork. I absolutely adore working with watercolors and creating new, short narratives with the illustrations I am currently creating. They are meant to be peaceful, contemplative, and indicative of nothing beyond the simple joy of putting a brush to paper. In short, I'm having fun; learning new watercolor techniques and creating different textures with a medium that has a mind of its own. I have found a new balance, one that is all about the structure and order of library life on one side, and the chaotic openness of artistic creativity on the other. I fully believe in the importance of libraries and the role they play in society, and I believe this passion has enhanced, and will continue to enhance, the freedom of visual expression that I have found in working in watercolor, and that is wonderful to me." - Rebecca Lesny

Brath and Hughes Fine Art Partners With Fritz Weiss and the Brooklyn Waterfront Artist Coalition to Present "A Convergence of Visual Definitions"

“A Convergence of Visual Definitions”
A Glossary of: Artistic Elements, Principles, Mediums, and Statements.

Curators: Mary Beth Brath and Fritz (Steven) Weiss

Driven to present exciting exhibition opportunities to emerging artists at different venues, this exhibition is a composite view from Mary Beth Brath and Fritz on the vast creativity, execution, process and significant definitions of artistic expression by these artists.

BWAC Gallery on The Pier in Redhook, Brooklyn is an expansive space of over 15,000 square feet composed of multiple size rooms, ideally suited to show work of all sizes from many artists.

The premise of our creativity is made possible by utilizing the basic elements of art: texture, space, shape, color, tone, value and line.

From there conception begins with composition as utilization of the basic elements of art and principles of design enabling the execution of the artistic process. The process continues and begins to clarify, clearly defining artistic expression.

Featuring: Susan Benigni-Landis, Linda Billet, Mary Beth Brath, Mark Brockman, Richard Capuozzo, Willie Chu, Joyce Coletti, Robin George, Thom Glace, Christine Goldbeck, Brownyn Hughes, Stephen Joyce, Marilyn Kiss, Joan Lenker, Sue Marrazzo, Annette Martin, Ken Martin, Paul Nueckel, Sage Reynolds, Virginia Ross, Larry Scaturro, Suprina, Joan Velazquez, Suzanne Villella, Fritz (Steven) Weiss.
