2021 FIREFLY COFFEEHOUSE JOINT EXHIBITION March-April
Show went well! Special thanks to Firefly Coffeehouse for their continued support of artists! Grateful for such generous words from art reviewer Chris Gargan.
"Two artists producing beautiful and complimentary work are now showing at the Firefly Cafe in Oregon, Wisconsin.
Marla Brenner, a bold and bravura filled painter of landscape, wildlife and still life is paired with Terri Beck-Engel who is showing small exquisite abstractions that combine painterly passages of striking color with direct calligraphic mark making.
...Terri Beck-Engel is in the business of manufacturing jewels in the guise of small abstract moments. There is a lithe, confident, and almost secretive allusion to pictorial subject that is referenced but never explicitly revealed in her small square offerings. Whispers of DeKooning, Hoffmann, and
perhaps Joan Mitchell inform her sensibility with a playfulness and authority not often seen in contemporary abstraction."
2021 "PAINTWORKS AT THE PRAIRIE"
PRAIRIE CAFE Solo Show
Great show! Thanks Dan Erdman, Mary Ellen and staff once again your support of local artists!
OTHER NOTES OF INTEREST
In Mineral Point, WI I have small works on paper available at Brewery Pottery Gallery on 276 Shake Rag Street. A fantastic gallery with a wide selection of artists and mediums. www.brewerypottery.com
HERE'S TO 2021!
Be well, stay strong and be a light.
"The artwork is rich in surface, gesture, and textures that move your eye around the picture plan in a satisfying journey. Some of the shapes seem almost nature-like, others are made by scrafrito scratches in the surface revealing mysterious possibilities in the colors underneath. Marks are made with courage and confidence, that create a complexity in the contrast of color, shapes and surface that seem to imply a narrative that I may discover if I stay with it long enough. It is an artwork that draws you to it again and again." (Award comments from Juror and Artist Helen Klebesadel)
