"Annual Faculty Exhibition" at RI College
From my review of the "Annual Faculty Exhibition" at Rhode Island College in Providence:
The 11-artist "Annual Faculty Exhibition" at Rhode Island College's Bannister Gallery is hit or miss. Hits include Lisa Russell's three densely painted abstractions. Her sense for texture, narrow harmonies of color (gray to white, green to mocha), and rhythm of marks all contribute to a tense mood. Her compositions begin with long, wide, open brush and knife strokes, but then tighten somewhere off-center, with lots of short, narrow strokes that seem to buzz with pent-up energy.Read the rest here.
