Nina Johnson is pleased to announce Snowbirds, Ann Craven's second solo exhibition with the gallery, opening with a public reception on Friday, January 26th (7-9 pm), and remaining on view until March 10th, 2018.
As the Northern United States are blanketed in an atmosphere of frost and snow, Ann has found herself delving deep into the coldest recesses of the country, painting extensively in her native Northeast Corridor – from Maine to Connecticut. Continuing her interest of the classical image of a bird perched on a branch, this exhibition is filled with Craven’s iconic bird paintings- intuitive, gestural and responsive to a frosted climate and the creatures that choose to stay within it. These singular small-scale paintings relish in the isolation and frosted blue light of winter, meanwhile Craven’s pinks and bright colors remain steady, bearing and possessing the promise of spring.
