The Fleeting Moment at Art Times Two

Abstract Expressionist painting communicates emotional charge and formal intrigue, and with it a subtle sense of the present and fleeting moment. Three artists working in the Princeton area today are represented in the show The Fleeting Moment opening at Art Times Two, the gallery at Princeton Brain and Spine. Joy Barth, Fran Eber and Pat Maritn work with a mix of materials and a variety of techniques. Pouring, attaching, layering paint on sand, plaster or digital prints, each artist responds intuitively to the present moment, engaging in a dialogue with their work. Each artist refers in their work to nature and to their response to it. Each artist works in that unique space within themselves that shepards unconscious feelings and ideas into physical activity and the resolution of their paintings.

Research pertinent to this venue has shown how art positively affects patients, their caregivers, and their families in a medical environment. It has been shown that art referring to nature has been the most powerful in changing the thoughts and feelings - the anxieties and stresses - of those individuals. This conscious and sometimes unconscious process has been an important goal of the art program at Art Times Two, the gallery at Princeton Brain and Spine.

The show opens with a reception on Thursday, June 15 from 6-8 pm, and is open to the public. After that date, the show can be seen upon appointment during office off hours; call the curator Madelaine Shellaby at 609 203 4622. The show will run for six months, ending in Novermber.
