Announcing the final opening in the series of three shows that I am curating, featuring the artists of Women’s Art Power. The exhibition, “Color Speaks: Exploring The Language Of Color,” will run from December 1, 2018 through January 31, 2019 at The BIZ G87 Gallery, and will feature works by Michele Caplan, Janice Ferro, Leslie Fenn Gershon, and Rhonda Tawil.
The gallery is located at 1987 Palmer Avenue, Larchmont, NY 10538.
A group exhibition featuring the works of Michele Caplan, Janice Ferro, Leslie Fenn Gershon, and Rhonda Tawil. These four artists are examining the connection between color and emotion and responding to the message.
Color has been known to have many psychological effects on the human psyche and can elicit emotional reactions. Cool colors such as blue are often associated with the elements of water and sky and can bring about serene feelings. Green is linked to nature and to the tranquil effects that trees and green grass have upon the soul. The color purple is thought to awaken creativity and the imagination. And orange is a strong and energetic color that expresses vitality. Red is a warm, vibrant hue and is connected to intense emotions such as love, and passion. The color yellow is associated with the sun and therefore yellow is warming, revitalizing, and evokes joy.
Michele Caplan says that “color is like ringing a bell, it is hard not to respond. Color is simultaneously emotion and abstraction.” Janice Ferro comments “that a color dialogue will start to take place with each brushstroke of hue, and the colors that are chosen begin to tell a story.” Leslie Fenn Gershon explains, “that she will often abstract the natural colors to bring a fresh and new perspective to her land and waterscapes.” Rhonda Tawil states, “that color and the combined colors are the most important element in her paintings.”
In “Color Speaks: Exploring the Language of Color” we consider how color is a powerful tool that an artist will use to express their ideas and emotions, and to speak to the viewer.

I am excited to announce the second in a series of three shows that I am curating, featuring the artists of Women’s Art Power. The exhibition, “Inspired Journeys: Through Art,” will run from September 7, 2018 through November 1, 2018 at The BIZ G87 Gallery, and will feature works by Renee Baley, Sunny Stubin, Melissa Noah, and myself.
BIZ G87 is pleased to present its newest exhibition, “Inspired Journeys: Through Art.” A group exhibition featuring works by Renee Baley, Melissa Noah, Donna Scarpa, and Sunny Stubin. Curated by Donna Scarpa.
“Inspired Journeys: Through Art“is about the inspiration an artist feels to create. What is that special something that sparks their soul and their imagination? “Inspired Journeys” allows the viewer to travel with each artist to experience their unique and individual voices. All four artists have chosen different artistic directions and have made creative choices along the way.
Renee Baley states “that her art has always been inspired by her chosen subject and her desire to explore it. My goal is to use art as a place to explore a world of new chances.” Melissa Noah says “that she is an avid follower of global current events and is inspired by the news and media images that are seen on a daily basis. I am drawn to expressions of strong emotion.” Donna Scarpa feels “that her art is often inspired by her surroundings but could really come from anywhere. I will often jump start the creative process by loosely drawing and painting on a surface, while connecting my internal feelings and reactions to visually guide myself.” Sunny Stubin comments that “she uses color to ignite her creativity, and that she loves the mysterious, and her art reflects surrealistic overtones. Just as she has been inspired by past events she now finds inspiration in what the future may hold.”
Every journey is as unique as the individual but perhaps they are universal. Whether the journey is driven by external influences, emotional and internal reactions, social causes or the desire to tell a story. The overarching common thread for these artists is the need to create based on the pure love and joy of the creative process itself.
Last year, together with a group of eleven other creative women, we formed an artist collective to share our passion for painting. I am pleased to announce the launch of our group website WomensArtPower.com. Be sure to check out the website to read more about us explore our artwork.
