During the month of March, E Street Gallery will feature two abstract painters in “Color Fields.”
Matt Rhoades and Cherie Hacker’s art share common considerations in their painting process with vivid color, pattern, shape, and the formal elements of art and design. Most important is the dialog between the artist and the painting through a trust in the process, along with honed intuition and years of experience. Each artist follows their own artistic vision as they reflect on life and nature in spirited emotion clearly visible to the viewer. Devoid of pursuing current art trends, Rhoades and Hacker speak a language of their own, and welcome guests to E Street Gallery for a unique glimpse into their art making.
