“The works in this exhibition are bold and evocative images,” said Ty Tabing, Cultural Affairs Director. “The viewer is initially enticed by Silverstein’s use of strong textures and stunning colors, and then is captivated by the intricacy of her technique.”



Silverstein believes that it is not necessary to go too far to find the universal in everyday things.  She reveals liminal interpretations of her sunlit surroundings.





“Sea Painting 1”  by Harriet Silverstein





Harriet Silverstein tells The Rickie Report, “I am inspired by natural color and light, in the ways they define organic form, texture and color. The illuminating light of South Florida, with its brilliant brightness and deep dark lushness in its shadows, is especially inspiring to me,” said Silverstein. “My goal is to create feelings of energy, spontaneity, and the joyful process of creation for the viewer. Integrating traditional and non-traditional approaches engages the viewer in visual, sensory, corporeal, and cerebral levels of cognition.”
