Cohn Drennan Contemporary will present Frayed Elements, Surface Tension and Eye Candy, three series of paintings from three artists, Giovanni Valderas, Michael McKenzie and Allison Gregory.  Each of the artists in this exhibition incorporate art in the comprehension of their lives and understanding the world around them. The paintings from Valderas’ Frayed Elements incorporate mixed media, consisting of paper, acrylic paint, wood, drawing and screen print in which he depicts ambiguous objects and memories in an effort to evoke a sense of mystery and clarity of personal relationships. Gregory derives inspiration for the works in her Eye Candy series from pop culture, found objects, toys and wandering the aisles of Party City, Hobby Lobby and Michaels. And cultural symbols, dream imagery and intuitively invented shapes populate the paintings of McKenzie’s series Surface Tension.

The exhibit will run May 18 through June 22.
