Big thanks to the Post & Courier and Scott Elingburg for the write up of Exaggerated Nature last week. Elingburg writes:
"The Art Mecca unveils a new group show that tackles a traditional theme and twists it to fit a new vision of their artists. "Exaggerated Nature" is a study in reworking the reliable landscapes of Mother Nature.
Featuring the work of three artists, Julia Deckman, Jane Ann Sweeny and Erika Allen, this group show is packed with color, imagery and innovative designs that provide a welcome respite from ordinary landscapes. Seeing these subjects from a fresh perspective is time well spent.
Deckman’s floral subjects and colors pop off the canvas with wide-eyed purpose, while Sweeny’s relief prints are tangible as she carves wood block panels into one-of-a-kind pieces that display her patience and craft. Allen’s work shows that same patience and craft as she uses canvases of repurposed wood to form drip-painted trees. Part Pollock, part folk-art, Allen’s trees are engrossing all around.
Together you will be hard pressed to find a favorite out of these three multi-talented women."
