Philipson and Stevens-Gupta: HORIZONS AND ABSTRACT REALITIES
Photographer Rachel Philipson and painter Ivy Stevens-Gupta explore land, water and sky in their exhibition of photographs and paintings with a strong abstract quality. Both award-winning artists display their landscape artwork beginning March 1, 2020. Philipson (Rachelphilipson.com) is a documentary and lifestyle photographer and photojournalist. Her large, monochromatic landscapes recall her travels to Puerto Rico, Mexico, California and Massachusetts. Color therapist and visual artist Stevens-Gupta (Ivycreativedesigns.com) channels her creative energies in paintings that illustrate effects of global warming. Her creative process includes many layers of acrylic, oil and resin on canvas or birch board to create abstract-realistic paintings of near and far landscapes, both real and imagined.
