Let it Be: Randomness in Abstract Art
From July 13 through October 5, 2019 Coos Art Museum will be showing Let it Be: Randomness in Abstract Art an exhibition of two artists, Rebecca Arthur and Geralyn Inokuchi. There is a special reception for the artists on Friday, July 20 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The reception is free to the public.
The two artists explore color and texture in very different media. In both contemporary abstract painting (Inokuchi) and Raku pottery (Arthur), the goal is to achieve beauty in simplicity and imperfection. Both develop along the lines of randomness where the composition is asymmetric yet balanced.
