Opening Reception for Artists Barbara Groot, Lianne Alcon, and Herbert August at Romany Kramoris Gallery

August 17, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Lianne Alcon - The Surrender 24x20

Romany Kramoris Gallery is pleased to present a group art show featuring 3 local artists: Barbara Groot, Lianne Alcon, and Herbert August. The exhibition will be on view from August 15 through September 5, with a reception for the artists on Saturday, August 17, from 5-6:30 PM.

Barbara Groot grew up in Southern California with the sun and light illuminating the landscape. Now living and working in East Hampton, she finds the light on the East End equally special and energizing.

There is an elegance in her long sweeping line work, reminiscent of musical phrasing. Her brushstrokes appear as if from modern music scoring which channels emotional lightness and spatial freeness, uplifting the viewer. Her boundaries are loose or nonexistent, contributing to a breathless freedom.

Lianne Alcon is an expressionistic painter whose canvases reflect images viewed by an experienced, discerning eye for the essential. Yet her painting style is loose—in contrast to her disciplined approach—and it frequently incorporates swirling strokes and liberal use of her brushes. Alcon uses that contrasting perception and expression—whether painting flamenco dancers nudes, or sceneries from Spain, all favorite subjects—to uniquely capture their spirit.

Herbert August of Sagaponack often starts a work with reference to nature, which becomes abstract. “The world is his oyster” for subject matter. Starting small and enlarging, he explores color, shape, and texture with greater freedom. These elements and intuition become emotional expression. August has studied with Robert Gwathmey and Louis Kahn.
