"Color Expressions" by Renee Bruce

Abstract 710

Art Central is pleased to kick off the new year with a burst of color from artist Renee Bruce.  Her solo exhibit, “Color Explorations,” is on display at the gallery through the end of January.

“Color Explorations” comes just in time to brighten a sometimes dreary month.  Renee’s newest work is a collection of paintings created with richly pigmented alcohol inks on impervious surfaces.  The artist is excited about her new work.  She says, “The inks I used in these pieces are captivating.  They’re luminous and seem to float across the surface.”

Renee explains her process, “These paintings were so much fun to create!  No brushes, but I used other tools, including a credit card, cotton swabs, a spray bottle and canned air.  I tried not to control the ink unnecessarily.  The colors mixed and mingled until something beautiful began to happen.  Then I encouraged, repeated, added and subtracted until the image was complete.  It was really an interactive process and very freeing for me as an artist.”

Meet the artist at a reception on Third Thursday, January 17, 2019 5 pm.-8 pm.  Her exhibit, “Color Explorations” will be presented until the end of the month.  More information is at
