Gallery B is pleased to present its December exhibition: Cadence, featuring artwork by Kristine DeNinno, Damon Arhos, and Clare Winslow.
Cadence refers to a characteristic rhythmic pattern that indicates the end of a phrase and brings about a sense of resolution. Similar patterns can be found in visual art as well. In the exhibition, Cadence, at Gallery B in downtown Bethesda, a trio of artists explores rhythms of abstract painting and printmaking through a visual "conversation" on canvas, paper, and wood.
Visual connections found in the world around us are a source of energy for three local artists: Kristine DeNinno, Damon Arhos, and Clare Winslow. In paintings and prints completed over the past two years, the work of these artists, who are also friends, offers an unspoken dialogue about the relevance of various media and methods, as well as reaffirming the value of looking at the world
through an abstract lens.
The artists' three approaches reveal a variety of differences as well: surfaces vary between textured
and smooth, dense or delicate, depending on the medium and substrate used. The subject matter throughout often relates to nature and relationships, but is not exclusive to it. Ultimately the viewer is invited to bring his or her own response to the work, and will be rewarded by looking. This vibrant exhibition provides a range of opportunities for the viewer– from enjoying the sense of “flow” unique
to nonrepresentational art, to actively engaging in a search for the connections that bind all.
