In celebration of abstract painting and artists everywhere in Washington, DC, with the large area wide exhibitions; ColorField Remix, the first International Art Fair, artDC and Artomatic, I'm holding my studio's first Virtual Gallery Exhibition, Virtual Appeal. You're invited to view selections from my latest body of work, the "Leela Series". (Work in progress....The artist reserves the right to alter the contents of this exhibition and blog anytime, from anywhere.)
Virtual Appeal touches on how art is exhibited in today's market, the transitory nature of reality and the role that art plays in our lives. The virtual exhibition occurs online on computers everywhere while the first DC International Art Fair, is being held at the DC Convention Center in Washington, DC from April 27-30, 2007. Virtual Appeal, the cyber exhibition slideshow runs through May 10 when the cyber-gallery will then retire to a private cyberspace and the artist will continue to celebrate an artful life in her studio (and elsewhere).
A virtual exhibition by Washington, DC artist, Anne Marchand. Marchand is a colorist working in acrylic and mixed media. Her paintings explore the dynamics of movement through her color combinations, her use of dynamic line and surface texture. The artist uses the voice of abstraction to set the stage, and play in the world of possibilities. Irridescent and translucent color passages in her canvases convey (e)motion and stillness. Color lines convey dynamic and subtle movements. The artist's process and journey is mysteriously concealed and revealed through multi-layered and textured surfaces. She extends her play through the world of media in her blog Painterly Visions.
In 2007, Anne Marchand was awarded an Artist Fellowship from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. She has exhibited her work throughout the United States and in Mexico. Her paintings are in numerous private and public collections. Marchand describes her work as "a spontaneous play of paint, poetry, music, communication and meaning."
This cyber exhibit is conceived and curated by Washington, DC artist Anne Marchand and will feature ten of her new works. Location: Cyberspace - Global - on Picasa Web Albums. Free and open to the public - 24 hours a day and night.
The works selected are from my current body of work, "Leela," which refers to life as a cosmic playground. The painting series will be featured at the Arches Gallery email@example.com in the wine country of California opening on August 3, 2007. For now, just drop by the cybershow often and please, let me know what you think. - Anne Marchand
