Environments-Paintings by Mary Witt


Environments-Paintings by Mary Witt

Town Hall on Thursday, September 6, during Amherst Arts Night Plus, for the opening reception of our new exhibit "Environments-Paintings by Mary Witt."

Environments are created spontaneously and intuitively by Mary Witt, an artist of abstract acrylic paintings. Mary loves abstract art, having been raised on it by German parents, and enjoys making paintings that become mysterious places to dive into. Applying layers of paint and digging through and adding and subtracting the medium invents these mysterious places that the viewer can get lost in.

Mary likes working with shapes, textures, and color. Using mostly palette knives to spread paint on her canvases, she layers various colors and thicknesses to bring texture and depth to the work. The finished paintings have a playful, yet serious tone, invoking possible imagery, but also leaving a lot to the imagination.
