Southport Galleries presents Abstract Women exhibition

Southport Galleries presents Abstract Women, an exhibition of contemporary paintings with selective works by six female artists with strong local roots: Katherine Evans, Katy Ferrarone,  Ellen Hermanos, Beth Munro, Kim Romero, Helen Werngren. The exhibit runs from Oct. 20-Nov. 18.

Curatorial Director Philip Eliasoph cites the famous words of artist, Georgia O’Keeffe: ‘I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other — things I had no words for.’  “It is in that spirit we present the talented voices of these women addressing today’s trending styles in contemporary art, with six signature variations,” continues Dr. Eliasoph.  

Southport Galleries Co-Directors Sissy Biggers and Jennifer Cargill invite patrons to compare and contrast how each artist is navigating her own set of painterly approaches ranging from images of harmoniously colorful hues, delicately rendered compositions to bright interwoven angles searching beyond the frame. The exhibit surveys original artistic approaches, which reveal each artist’s visual journey and feminine points of view.

“We invite collectors, home designers and art lovers to this fall cornucopia of fresh, off-the-easel paintings,” said Jennifer Cargill. “Come join us to experience these indisputably ‘now’ contemporary works.”  

In collaboration with the Pequot Library’s annual Art Show week, Southport Galleries will host a special opening reception on Friday, Oct. 20, from, 5-8 p.m. which will benefit the library’s programs and outreach. Free and open to the public.

Southport Galleries, 330 Pequot Avenue, Southport. www.southportgalleries.com 203-292-6124. Open Wednesday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Always by appointment: [email protected]
