Open Mind Art Space presents “The Tender Air,” featuring new paintings by Cathy Ellis and Yumiko Glover. An opening reception was held for the artists on Saturday, April 9, 2022. The exhibition will remain on view through May 7, 2022. Remember to confirm with gallery’s website for up-to-date covid protocols and guidelines – (proof of vaccination and masks MAY be required).

Through their shared interest in painting, Cathy Ellis and Yumiko Glover use landscape rendering and color as a framework to explore connections between place, memory, and the fleeting present moment. In The Tender Air, Ellis’ works are influenced by the hypnotic and immersive effect of changing light in coastal California, and Glover’s paintings are inspired by the color harmonies first developed within the design work of 1930s Japan during the early Showa period. Collectively, their works capture parts of places that are not quite public or private, but evoke familiarity, solitude and discovery.

On view: April 9, 2022 – May 7, 2022; Gallery hours are Thursdays – Saturdays, 11:00am – 5:00pm, or by appointment.
