Five 18

Last week was a busy week.  After returning from Montana, it was time for First Thursday in Boise. My friend and I went to Gallery Five 18 to see the exhibition of our friend, Anne Peterson Klahr, and another artist, Randy Van Dyck.

Both artists are painters with very different styles.  Anne's work is often vibrant with an emphasis on strong color and/or dramatic lighting and is often abstract.  Figures are also abstracted into soft, almost other worldly, forms in some of her works.

The other featured artist is Randy Van Dyck.  He works on a smaller scale.  His paintings are photorealistic and somewhat surreal due to the juxtaposition of objects within the painting.  A landscape is the backdrop for birds and other floating objects.  A sense of humor is demonstrated with the titles.

Their exhibition will be up for the month of July.
