Alan Avery Art Company will hold a reception for the exhibition “1/500th of a Second,” featuring new work from Jean Larson. The reception will be from 7 until 10 p.m. on Friday, September 9, 2011. The exhibition continues .
Jean Larson is known for her nontraditional paintings of flowers, seeped in layers of color, yet her new works include another theme that has permeated her oeuvre – hummingbirds. This is the first series Larson has devoted solely to these tiny birds. Floating in an abyss of color, beating their wings 1/500th of a second, and often among flowers, the hummingbirds become the focal point of the paintings. As with her previous work, Larson uses flora and fauna to represent events and people in her life. Her mixture of these elements with an abstracted background gives way to an ethereal and sublime setting.
Through Oct. 28.
