Fall Brush Exhibition with Irene Christensen in NYC
The Pen & Brush presents an international group exhibition with Irene Christensen, curated by Margaret Kelly Trombly. The “2009 Fall Brush Exhibition” consists of works on canvas, paper, and mixed media. The show integrates contemporary and classic forms offering boundless manifestations of traditional media today.
Margaret Kelly Trombly is a Creative Arts Executive specializing in curatorial work, teaching and museum administration. A seasoned corporate manager, she has built credibility and an excellent reputation for her unique ability to blend creative and aesthetic taste with astute business acumen.
“Irene Christensen’s art is about painting as a magical act. Her images repeat and are transformed, as words and images in poems. She likes to maintain a sense of wonder in her art. That life is strange and quirky, and contradictory, that tragedy and comedy are not played out in separate theaters, but co-exist, side by side,” said art critic John Zeaman about Irene’s work.
