Laura Rathe Fine Art will present a dual-exhibition featuring new works by abstract artists, Carly Allen-Martin and Audra Weaser. "Summer Serenade" explores these artists’ ability to construct visual experiences through their use of color and approach to building up numerous layers. These paintings serve as narratives to their unique, creative processes and reflect upon the moments within their artistic journeys.

Allen-Martin dives deep into the world of color, taking the viewer beyond the confines of the canvas and into a space full of optimism and hope. She balances her vibrant palette through her use of multiple mediums, such as charcoal, oil and pastel, which allows one to get lost in the subtle textural nuances hidden within each and every brushstroke. Allen-Martin’s expressionistic style aims to enrich our lives and inspire us to live more boldly and authentically.

Weaser, who is inspired by the abstraction of nature, aims to capture the moment “at which a connection is made between an exterior and inner reality.” She builds up successive layers of mixed media until she begins to see the composition emerging from below. She then takes a sander and quite literally excavates the layers back down and forms her composition using long, sweeping motions. The colors then begin to form a landscape, seemingly illuminated from within, that reveal a delicate, ethereal atmosphere and yet abstracted just enough that it mirrors the familiar.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through July 27.
