Liz Rundorff Smith & Barbara Strasen

May 16 – June 30, 2024 | Opening Reception: May 18, 2024
Susan Eley Fine Art’s Upstate location in Hudson, NY is pleased to present an exhibition of recent works by Barbara Strasen and Liz Rundorff Smith. The show will be on view from May 16th to June 30th at SEFA’s location in Hudson. The artists will be present for an opening reception on Saturday, May 18th from 4-6PM.

In this exhibition, the pairing of Strasen and Rundorff Smith is based on their approaches to abstraction, layering and color. Both artists are fearless colorists who meld unique forms into their specific visions. The layers of pigment allow for visual transformations and vibrations within each canvas—acrylic, flashe and collage for Strasen and encaustic and pastel powder for Rundorff Smith. Reality is paused while absorbing their paintings. Imagery shifts into the imaginary.
