Marty Kremer and Cate Leach: Architecture and Landscape in the Abstract
The Flinn Gallery at Greenwich Library will exhibit Marty Kremer and Cate Leach: Architecture and Landscape in the Abstract from May 1 through June 12, 2008. The artists work in very different mediums. Marty Kremer, a resident of Pound Ridge, N. Y., works with glass, particularly fused glass. He creates three dimensional architectural sculptures in glass, by turns opaque and transparent. The dramatic sculptures, with their free standing pieces, glass walls and empty spaces creating counterpoint and tension, could be taken as maquettes for large public monuments.
These are interestingly balanced and complemented by the abstract oils and acrylics of Cate M. Leach of Darien. Says Ms. Leach, "In my imagination, I walk in my abstract landscapes, my other world. In this exhibit I step out and explore a city of glass." For many years Ms. Leach was a dancer with George Balanchine's New York City Ballet and her work reflects the indelible impression of art on a grand scale that she perceived there. Large, complex and moody, her spacious abstracts suggest great drama. Says Mr. Kremer of their pairing "Her work gives mine context and ...mine gives hers depth. Or vice-versa?" The artist's reception on Friday, May 2 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. is open to visitors. The artists will give a Gallery Talk on Saturday, May 3 at 1:00 p.m. The Flinn Gallery is open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., Thursday 10 a.m. - 8 p.m. and Sunday 1-5 p.m.
