Opening Reception: Saturday May 14 from 5pm to 8pm
Evolve Urban Arts Project presents Shenanigans featuring works by Lindsey Applebee. This is the third featured show for Ms. Applebee who says “painting and design are my tools for expressing myself, [they provide] freedom from everyday life, and a chance to get away.” The medium of photography is what introduced Lindsey to pursue a career in graphic design and it gave her the appreciation and attention to detail that has become so apparent in her recent works.
Applebee enjoys exploring many different mediums and applications, using materials such as acrylic paints, metals, tapes, fabrics, and granulated paints to create textures and depth. She applies her materials with an assortment of brushes, spatulas and sponges to create different textures and depths. “My work is constantly changing from size to color, scale, and theme. The processes also vary at times, beginning with the background alone and other times working in layers”, says Applebee.
As the title of the exhibition implies, the artist’s latest body of work was designed to remove observers from the routines of day-to-day living and replace it with jokes, fun and horseplay.
Shenanigans runs May 14, through June 25, 2011. The Project space is located in the Pierce School Lofts at 1375 Maryland Avenue, NE,. To view this exhibit, please call (202) 359.7368 for a private appointment.
