Green Chalk artists, Anne Merchand, Toward Abstraction at The Carl Cherry Center in Carmel, California.

October 20 – November 25, 2023

Toward Abstraction: New Paintings by Anne Marchand and Lesley Anne Spowart, a new exhibit of prints, drawings and animation, opens Friday, October 20th at the Carl Cherry Center for the Arts. A reception for the artists will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

The exhibition features individual works by Anne Marchand and Lesley Anne Spowart, reflecting their interests in figuration and abstraction and serial processes across a range of media. The exhibit explores issues related to isolation, creative adaptation, novel ways to connect and a vision for the future. Taken together, these paintings straddle the line between representation and abstraction, revealing how ordinary objects often serve as a point of departure for an artist’s abstract vision, or, alternatively, how an artist’s abstract forms may subtly suggest recognizable elements.

The exhibit opens in person Friday, October 20th through November 25th. Cherry Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 4:00 p.m.
