The Spirit That Moves Me at Gallery 64 Examines the Divergence between Abstraction and Illustrative Painting

Share Article

Alice Zinnes' abstractions are suited to an architectural or interior designer palette, exuding a powerful painterly presence. Skip Noah's paintings and constructions will charm even the novice collector.

Gallery 64 is pleased to present two divergent artists in a show titled "The Spirit That Moves Me" -- featuring the paintings of Alice Zinnes and Skip Noah. The show will run from Saturday, April 22, 2006 until Saturday, May 13, 2006.

Park Slope artist, Alice Zinnes' abstract works make use of an old masters palette, evoking a poetic mystery within a landscape context. Mark David Cohen of Art New England wrote "...a young painter who gets the point of abstraction, who paints with an evident understanding of why the mode was created." She has had an extensive exhibition history including numerous solo shows and currently teaches at Pratt Institute and New York City Technical College, CUNY.

Skip Noah's paintings and constructions derive from dream imagery. Being self taught, Mr. Noah composes works unencumbered by the usual rules of composition. It gives his work both a whimsical and sublime quality. "The bold abstract designs are sure to intrigue even those with limited art backgrounds. His colors are vivid and thought provoking" says the Dallas Observer of Noah's work.

A wine reception is scheduled for Saturday, April 22, 2006 from 6 - 9 pm. Gallery 64 is located at 64 Saint Marks Avenue between 5th and 6th Avenues in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Normal business hours are noon to 6 pm, Saturdays and Sundays, or by appointment.
