Summer exhibitions open now, featuring bold color and dynamic compositions capturing moments in time

A detail of Erika Ranee's "I Wonder if You Know What I Mean," 2022, an acrylic, shellac, spray paint, and paper collage on canvas. This abstract piece features lime greens, pinks, teal, light blue, purple, and lots of neutral colors. Some of the lines look like the root system of a plant, some look drips, others look like sharp shapes.
