Kuzma and Worrell at PII Gallery

kathyindeximg

CATHERINE KUZMA 
& DAVE WORRELL

Close to Home

PII Gallery is pleased to present a show of paintings and poems by Catherine Kuzma and Dave Worrell, respectively. To Kuzma, painting is a meditative process, each painting a conversation, communion with a creative power documented in color and impressions. In her most recent series CLOSE TO HOME, she celebrates local landscapes and patches of nature that have survived suburban development in southern New Jersey.
When Dave Worrell first saw the paintings exhibited in CLOSE TO HOME, he felt drawn into a very familiar world. The poems that have emerged from Dave’s contemplation of Catherine’s paintings evoke a South Jersey landscape much impaired by human encroachment, yet still retaining isolated spots of beauty and tranquility: the yet-lingering consolations of the natural world through which flashes of the eternal shine through.
April 3 – 25
Special Reception will be held on April 1, from 6-9pm.
Opening reception on April 3, 6-9pm.
