Lawrence Street Gallery
Exploring New Worlds – Maureen Cassidy Keast and Suzanne Allen
Artists Suzanne Allen and Maureen Keast launch their third two-women show at Lawrence Street Gallery in Ferndale, Michigan during the month of June 2019. Building on their past strengths, these two professional artists present their newest creations, exploring new materials, techniques, media and styles.
In their first show, Allen and Keast celebrated “Our Mother’Worlds”. Allen used mixed-media collage extensively to trace the changes in the role of women during her mother’s 100 year lifetime. Keast explored her mother’s love of flowers with mixed media floral paintings. In their second show, “Play Is The Thing”, the two artists focused on play. Suzanne incorporated mixed media collage along with printmaking, acrylic, and assemblages. Maureen created playful acrylic animal portraits and ceramic pieces.
Once again they will ‘explore’ new work in June. Allen expands her work in printmaking, collage and assemblage. See her new large abstracts and now encaustics too. Keast is excited about her new water media including alcohol inks on ceramic tiles, Plexiglass paintings, Masa paper bags and painting on new sculptures and tiles.
“Exploring New Worlds” represents refreshing new directions for these two inspired artists. The show runs from June 5th through June 29th. The opening reception is Friday, June 7th, 6 – 9 pm. Mid month’s reception is Sunday June 16, 12 – 5 pm.
