The Ann Korologos Gallery will present the work of four female artists this month in its ‘Feminine Eye’ exhibition. The female perspective is the focus and features photographers Sandra Lee Kaplan and Kathryn Rabinow, and painters Roseta Santiago and Dinah Worman. All artists will be represented by at least 10 new works, providing exhibition visitors with plenty of examples from which to gain insight into individual styles and processes. ‘The Feminine Eye’ will be on view June 17 through July 5, and the artists’ reception will be held on Thursday, June 25, from 5 to 7 pm.
“We are extremely proud of the extraordinary talent represented by the Ann Korologos Gallery and this exhibition allows us to bring together four women artists, each with a unique view and diverse approach to their art,” explained Gallery Director Julia Novy. “Each brings focuses on a unique element of the Western lifestyle.”
Of her photography, Sandra Lee Kaplan says, “I never set out to simply take a photo; creating an image is my mission.” Her photographs featured in this exhibition are based on a series of arresting shots of horses taken on her travels. Photographer Kathryn Rabinow believes “most important is the ‘eye’ of the photographer and of the viewer. Art is only art if it impacts your total being, if you look with your ‘eye’ and your heart.” Rabinow’s photographs represent both abstract and traditional landscapes.
Oil painter Roseta Santiago says, “I have the same fascination with still life as I do with people, that beauty is in imperfections, the things that aren’t so perfectly pretty.” Santiago’s work will feature both still life and figurative works representative of the West. Dinah Worman searches for the “bones” of a landscape, found in the openness of an arid climate or the stacked fields of cultivated land. Worman works in both oil and pastel, and in her work on view in the current exhibition, exhibits reoccurring subjects including barns, cattle, and crows.
