Gallery 6000 Opens the Abstract Allure Exhibit

Posted Aug. 30, 2012

 
Kent State University at Stark is proud to host the Gallery 6000 exhibit, entitled Abstract Allure. Gallery 6000 is a collaboration between local artists and Kent State Stark, showcasing art of various media throughout the year. The exhibit, which is open to the public, is displayed in The University Center Dining Room, 6000 Frank Avenue NW in Jackson Township.
 
Abstract Allure features the works of two highly accomplished, local abstract painters: David Kuntzman and Patricia Zinsmeister Parker. The exhibit will be on display from September 4 through November 2, 2012. Most of the displayed pieces are for sale. The curator of Gallery 6000, Tom Wachunas, is an artist and adjunct instructor at Kent State Stark.
 
An opening reception will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 19 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the University Center. Please RSVP to Rebecca DeHart at 330-244-3518 or rdehart@kent.edu. The reception is free and open to the public. Representatives of the press are encouraged to attend.
 
Kuntzman’s large acrylic canvases are dense, ambiguous and intricate worlds comprised of grid patterns, overlapped in contrasting angles. Executed with uncanny precision, their intense colors vibrate and interact in surprisingly magical ways to produce mesmerizing shifts in spatial depth and light.
 
The recent mixed media paintings by Zinsmeister Parker are exciting, visceral and intuitive explorations of simple, organic forms and structures that exude a primordial energy. These forms, often rendered in or accented by bold, electric hues, seem to explode from subtly varied fields of darker, more brooding colors.
