“Charlotte Segal: New Work” Opening Fri. May 26, 6-9pm
In my early years as an artist, I concentrated on painting floral forms, of which many people compared me to another artist, ‘Georgia.’ Now, at 85, I reside in a senior community where the residents are primarily women.
Just like the women at ARC Gallery, they discuss many topics including the arts, politics and feminism. The women here are very diverse both culturally and physically. They are all beautiful whether they are slim, portly, petite or tall and they’ve become my wonderful neighbors. Because of this, I’ve decided to focus on women as the subject of my paintings now. I’ve depicted them “au natural” and in many bright hues. I suspect my neighbors might blush from head to toe when they learn they were the inspiration for this show.
Opening: Friday May 26 from 6-9pm
Exhibition dates: May 24 – June 17, 2017
Gallery hours: Wed-Sat 12-6pm Sunday 12-4pm
