Opening Reception: Studio Works

The painters exhibiting at The York Public Library from May 2nd- through June 30, 2023 refer to themselves as "The Abstract Four."  Barbara Adams, Peter Cady, Tom Glover and Dustan Knight enjoy sharing the challenges of creating abstract paintings. This exhibition called "Small Works" is a glimpse inside the artists' creative world.  Each of the Four Abstract painters chooses a range of artwork from their studios, both older and newer pieces, that celebrates their range and delights in their abilities to move between realism, abstraction and purely non representational artwork.

It is unusual to find four like minded artists who buck the traditional nomenclature assigned by instructors and gallery owners to move comfortably across the artistic language. It is an opportunity for viewers to watch the transition of representational  subjects such as a place or an object into artistic abstract interpretations and into images that no longer resemble the scene or object at all.

“There is definitely an educational aspect to our shows,” says artist Adams. “Abstraction can be intimidating and here you find four artists sharing their creative processes.”
