A Fine Feast: Paintings by Anne Seltzer on display at Cambria Library throughout July

From the artist:

I paint what is around me: the prolific pomegranate tree outside my studio, the big black noisy birds in the park across the street, the table in my kitchen. Often I begin with a simple subject, and paint, paint, paint….until at some point, colors and shapes will occur to me as the Whole Feast, and what was tame breaks out.  In this exhibit, I present this movement from representational still life into abstraction. The pomegranates in the bowls start rolling out a bit,  start changing colors, and even take over in domination. The “Feast” is not only the fruit, and the big black birds who hunger, but is the enjoyment of paint, process, and picture. Bon appetit!
