Cool Abs ... Edgy Art Exhibit

Abstract artist, Mary Sullivan, joins with 12 other members of the regional Art Beyond Tradition Abstract Group, for an exciting exhibit including her latest creations using poured inks, gold dust and a palette knife. Mary talked about her work saying "I guess I'm always trying to find my own 'edges.' Painting is a kind of travel to new and really unforeseen worlds. The process goes on as I wait for that happy moment when the whole comes together in a way that satisfies me with a sense of both recognition and mystery."

The exhibit at the Coastal Discovery Museum Gallery on Hilton Head Island opens September 3 thru November 1 with an Opening Reception on September 10 from 5-7 PM.

The painting shown is SHIFT by Mary Sullivan. She uses ink and gold dust with a palette knife. Do you feel the "shift" peaking out on the universe?
