Reception Friday, January 13 from 7pm to 9pm, featuring live music by Robert Ize.
Nina Caruso is a Detroit based artist creating work at her studio space at Hatch Art in Hamtramck. She holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Art Education from Oakland University and shares her love of art with Detroit's future artists by teaching elementary art at a local school district.
Her work spans many mediums but her primary focus has been abstract encaustic and oil painting as well as mixed medium sculpture, and has most recently been exhibited at the Scarab Club in both the Silver Metal and Gold Metal Exhibitions.
The paintings included in this exhibition are a collection of acrylic, encaustic, and oil on canvas. These works are representative of a process that often consists of repetitive adding and removing layers until imagery reveals itself, creating a space for the viewer to enter into a calming or meditative state if even for a moments time, revealing the transformative power of art.
