Last weekend was the closing reception for our friend Kimberly Stoney's show of abstracts entitled Little Wonders. She hung a series of paintings at the Acton Memorial Library in Acton MA. I don't have a background in the abstract, but I saw immediately (without reading the artist's statement) that, for an artist with a background in Everything But Painting (sculpture/design/ceramics, etc.), Kimberly showed in her work a depth and a real sense of exploration. She handled the medium with confidence, exploring shape and color on a level with many other more seasoned artists.
It was great to see Sam and Kimberly and Eliot (and Sam's sister Elizabeth, whom I hadn't seen in about 30 years). We all went back to their place after the reception and talked art and old times.
It's been a crazy year for me, so I got late notice this time. But when Kimberly has another show, I will post something before it closes — hopefully before it opens!
