AIR Studio + Gallery is thrilled to host these exciting new works by our very own member, Joan Minsky. Joan has been a longtime oil pastel painter of nature and has taken her work to new heights in the last year.
From Joan: "I have been painting landscapes for more than a decade. In addition to a somewhat realistic rendering of the subject matter and have been concerned with producing a pleasing composition utilizing color, value, rhythm, balance and focal point.
Over the past year I have been moving away from subject matter to purely abstract pieces as represented in this show. The interesting thing is that I still am using the same elements of art that I used in my landscapes. I feel freed, as I have more esthetic choices."
