Naeema and Krystle have teamed up with Brew Council to produce a monthly “paint and sip” event (but much cooler) at ORNG Ink. Each month there are new craft beers to taste as well as theme for group painting exercise. The event partly sponsored by ORNG Ink takes place Thursday January 14th 8:00pm at the Kelli Copeland Creative Co Op 355 S Jefferson Street in the Valley Arts District.
For this month the theme is inspired by “Chromatic”, an exhibit opening the same week at Newark Museum. Here is a little bit about the exhibit:
Chromatic: Minimalism and Color Field Experiments
Long-term Installation, Second Floor, Picturing America Contemporary Gallery
This exhibition presents highlights from the Newark Museum’s collection of late modern abstraction, bringing together works by major figures and innovators experimenting with color and light, including Mark Rothko, Josef Albers, Donald Judd, Richard Anuszkiewicz, Alma Thomas and others. Minimalism and Color Field painting emerged in the 1950s and flourished throughout the 1960s and 70s. Favoring simplified geometric shapes and machine-made materials, such as steel, plastic, and fluorescent light, these artists created works that feature sleek, streamlined surfaces and bold inventive approaches to color.
