Abstract pieces pose questions, create space for contemplation at mixed-media art show

Posted

Next Gallery's latest art show, "A Matter of Perspective, Encaustic and Mixed Media Works by Christy Lynne Seving," runs Aug. 24 - Sept. 11 in Lakewood. 

The Exhibition

Seving said she’s had a hard time figuring out why recently she’s been compelled to create abstract pieces. 

“As I approach my 50th birthday, things seem to be a bit less concrete. Facts have been replaced with shapes, ideas and possibilities. There are more questions than answers,” she said. “The way we see things seems to vary from person to person. The conflicting perspectives are influenced by our vantage point, the influences of our experiences and the people around us. It seems that intolerance drives a wedge in our evolution as humans. Allowing space for these different perspectives to coexist might be a step in the right direction.”

About the artist

Seving, a mixed-media artist, describes her work as a combination of drawing, painting, collage, assemblage, wood-burning and the next thing that catches her fancy. She’s been active in the Denver art scene for over a decade.

Logistics

The opening reception is from 6-10 p.m. Aug. 26, the artist reception is from 6-10 p.m. Sept. 2 and the closing reception is from 6-10 p.m. Sept. 9.

In case you missed it, Next Gallery has moved and is now located at 6501 West Colfax in Lakewood.
