Complementary works by four artists inspired the name of an exhibit opening Sunday, May 1, at Artisans at the Dahmen Barn in Uniontown.
“CONFLUO,” Latin for “to flow, flock and come together; abundantly meet, assemble, gather, collect, be brought together,” features paintings and sculptures by Beth Ann Rimmelspacher, Theresa Henson, Linda Hyatt Cancel and John Sebastian.
Hyatt Cancel’s oil paintings are influenced by the Colville River Valley of Washington, where she grew up.
Sebastian, a New York native whose paintings will be on display, uses art to work through uncertainty. “In a place of uncertainty, there is a fear factor, an awareness of our short time here on this planet, an awareness of our mortality,” he said, in a Dahmen Barn news release.
Henson, of Cottonwood, finds inspiration for her sculptures in the proliferation of forms found in healthy ecosystems — in nature, communities and the self.
Rimmelspacher, a self-taught artist from Clarkston, describes oil painting as offering a depth and dimension to a scene that a camera cannot capture.
