Elizabeth Darrow has made Wilmington her home since 1977. She works in a variety of styles depending on her medium, but usually does not work “from life” in the traditional sense. Most of the imagery that comes to her seems to hatch of its own accord, emerging from the process. Darrow enjoys working with color, repeating patterns and embedding humor (and angst) into her work. Each piece takes her on a journey of discovery where she hopes to lose herself to the process.

“Tributaries of Abstraction: Art by Dick Roberts” at ACME Art Studios

Photography by William Fridrich

Art in Bloom Gallery is excited to partner with Dick Roberts of Acme Art Studios to open a new exhibit, “Tributaries of Abstraction”.  The exhibit, opening on November 22nd, showcases Dick’s paintings.

Regarding the works in this exhibit, Dick states “The paintings are about the act of painting. Although individually the paintings possess different intensities, opposing levels of complexity and abstraction, and perhaps a vague adherence to a narrative, the core of the process of painting remains consistent. The paintings are a reflection of the process of painting them. Every process is unique.  The magic of painting can never be totally explained. I find joy in discovering the emerging world of a new painting. Although harmony of the mind and the heart is important, the metabolic process of converting color, form and line into the forces that drive the painting is absolutely necessary.”

Dick Roberts is an artist and poet with his studio located at Acme Art Studios (Wilmington, NC) which he co-founded in 1991, as a work and exhibition space for artists. He also co-founded No Boundaries International Art Colony (Bald Head Island, NC) in 1998, a residency program that in the last twenty years brought over 200 artists from around the world with the goal of creating a cross-exchange of cultures and artistic practices to share with our local community.

The exhibit is now on exhibit at Acme Art Studios and can be viewed in person, online, or via our Virtual Tour.
