Abstract Painters on the Greater Ithaca Art Trail

By Abstractartbylt @artbylt

You'll find plenty of abstraction at the Greater Ithaca Art Trail open studio weekends this October 8-9 and 15-16.  In addition to abstract painters, some of the photographers and fiber artists also focus on abstraction in their work. Today I'm featuring the abstract painters:

Elisabeth Gross-Marks is interested in color and form.  She says, "I have an inner picture that is like a kaleidoscope of bright colors that I am chasing after, seeking order for the abundance of possibilities, allowing myself to create exuberance and excitement."

Barbara Mink says, "With a nod to the Romantics and Abstract Expressionism, my work rests on the energy of the gesture, the visible trace of the process, and the coherence of carefully controlled elements, with textures and density ranging from thickly layered to ephemeral."

Ethel Vrana has moved from landscape to abstraction.  She says she enjoys "these new aesthetic challenges and the freedom to explore line, form and color."

John Lyon Paul is a scuptor as well as a painter.  He says, "Paintings draw us into their worlds. We move through them as in a dream, drawn and released by the pulse of color and the energy of line."
