Please join us on Friday, July 5 at Commerce Gallery as we celebrate the opening reception of Simplify, a new exhibition from Austin artist Stella Alesi. The free event takes place from 6-9 p.m. at Commerce Gallery in Downtown Lockhart. Additional work will be showcased by Commerce Gallery resident artist Christopher St. Leger.
Simplify showcases hard-edge, minimalist abstract paintings from the celebrated Austin painter, Stella Alesi. The exhibition was created in direct opposition to our current fast-paced and visually overloaded existence. The paintings apply simple shapes and a limited palette intending to activate the viewer’s mind. With influences from minimal abstraction paintings from the 50's and 60's as well as American Northwest Indian painting, Alesi’s work introduces a unique vocabulary for the present.
Stop by, meet the artists, enjoy music from jazz vocalist Sara Arenella and complimentary refreshments.
July 5 also marks First Fridays Lockhart, a free monthly event that takes place throughout historic town square. Come explore local businesses — from restaurants to boutiques to galleries — and get to know our wonderful creative community.
