April 20 – June 1, 2013, ZIA Gallery presents Mary Burke and Beverly Zawitkoski two artists who share an intuitive approach toward beginning a work, yet arrive at very different aesthetics. Burke turns her attention to surface, pattern, texture and rhythm, enjoying the process of analyzing all elements of building a successful painting. Her focus becomes about paint and mark-making; taming infinite possibilities into something that continues to engage. On the other hand, Zawitkoski’s process of exploring paint and surface always returns to an emotional impulse. Her abstractions of nature and humanity are the means to evoking ineffable beauty and mystery.
Mary Burke and Beverly Zawitkoski at ZIA Gallery, 548 Chestnut Street, Winnetka. The opening reception is Saturday, April 20th, 4:30 – 7pm. As always, all are welcome. The event is free and an opportunity to enjoy viewing art, meet the artists, and ask questions.
The gallery is located two short blocks from the Winnetka Metra Station.
