ALL WE NEED IS LOVE!

The new art exhibit at Peace by local artists Sher and Sterling Love will welcome you and astonish you.  The work is exuberant: big, bold and beautiful.  The colors are contemporary and the designs are abstract.  As a collection of visual images this exhibit provides a visual path into the season of Easter.

The Loves have been painting together since 2005. They have painted well over a thousand canvases.  Collaboration like this among artists is rare.  There are many examples throughout the history of art where paintings are made in an atelier, where one artist paints the trees, another paints the face, another paints the animals until the master puts on the essential details and signs the painting.  What is unusual in these works is the fact that the Loves work at the same time and the results are so wonderful.

Joy in its most intense visual expression is the emotion I felt the first time I saw their work.  It is evident in every piece.  I wondered how such a consistently positive expression could be maintained over such a long period of time?  After a very short time with them, their admiration, respect and passion for each other became evident. These images express a love that is grand.  I hope that you are able to truly walk into this exhibit and feel this beauty and joie de vivre that is life at its best.
