Debby Krim’s studio is located at 450 Harrison Avenue in the SoWa Art District of Boston. She has been photographing life around her with the intent to go beyond simple visual representations since the 1970s. This photograph was shown in the artist’s solo show, The Colors of White, at the Copley Society of Art. Debby Krim has referred to her studio as, “the incubator for [her] explorations and [her] foray into new artistic mediums.”
Rose Leitner, Katama I, acrylic, 8” x 10”
Rose Leitner’s abstract paintings focus on transforming an emotional or visual concept into its abstract essence, often as a direct interpretation of music, a figure, or a landscape, as Katama I demonstrates. Rose Leitner’s studio is at 59 Wareham Street in Wareham Studios. Take this opportunity to witness and learn about the artist’s creative process of layering and removing paint in pursuit of color, form, and mood.
You can currently see Katama I in Small Works: Fruition, on view at Co|So through April 28th.
