Poems of Color
This exhibit by Jane Adriance and Debbie Pisacreta looks at poetry from a visual perspective. These two artists use shapes and colors instead of words to create visual poems. They introduce images that evoke creative interpretations not only by the artist, but by the viewer as well.

Jane Adriance's "Watercolor Poems" tend towards implied meaning with the intent to go beyond what we are likely to see in everyday life. Sometimes the perspectives are expressions that are startling and contradictory. However, color and dynamic compositions exist in harmony. As a result, a color poem is created that invites a dialogue between the viewer and this painter.

Debbie Pisacreta's oil painted landscapes use color to create mood and atmosphere. Like a Haiku poem, Debbie simplifies the landscape to convey the essence of her emotional connection to the scene. Her goal as a plein air painter is to capture the feeling of a particular place and time.
