This Friday, August 22, from 6 to 8 pm, Hostetler Gallery at 42 Centre Street will host the opening of an exhibition of vibrant, energetic abstract paintings by internationally known artist Xanda McCagg.
McCagg’s paintings challenge the imagination and create a setting of conversation with the sculptures in the room, in addition to the other artists shown in the gallery. She has a fascination with the human experience, with the world of connections. A much studied approach with the use of a mark or block and or wash of color, choices that can shift the entire composition. Her use of forms of color and line forms constantly challenges the viewer and suggests dreamy places or other kinds of connections. “Her paintings communicate shifts between positive and negative, light and dark, form and line”…Cade Tompkins Projects.
