Shared Pathways: Steven and Katherine Aimone at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery

Exhibit dates: February 2 - February 28, 2016


Two weeks remain for viewing Shared Pathways: Steven and Katherine Aimone. This is a rare opportunity to experience this pair of artists’ work. Both of these strong artists works are based upon internal work, communicated through abstract means. Shared Pathways: Steven and Katherine Aimone is an excellent introduction to abstract art if you are not familiar with it, and a wonderful exhibit for the experienced abstract lover.

 

This exhibition features some of the work recently created on a painting sabbatical in Cortona, Italy. The couple maintains studios in Asheville, NC and on Monhegan Island, ME. They work and grow as artists, supporting one another in the pursuit of their dreams, aspirations, and goals.

Katherine says about her work: “My work is about experiencing beauty—that vulnerable state that is accessible each day, but often overlooked in our push to succeed and take care of practical concerns.” Her paintings were hung at the American Embassy in Moldova from 2010-14 through the Art in Embassies Program, and she had a solo exhibition in Asheville during 2015. She is currently organizing a national exhibition that opens in April for the new Greenville Creative Arts Center. Together with Dr. Nancy Hillis, she teaches workshops called Doing the Work of Your Life: Moving Beyond Fear in Abstract Art.

Steven says about his work, “My work is visual poetry, speaking indirectly and metaphorically about the human experience. The paintings serve as gateways, affording access to complex, internal states of emotion, psyche, and spirit.” Steven’s work has been the subject of solo and group exhibitions in Florida, New York, London and more. His works are represented in corporate and private collections. 
  
Steve, a nationally recognized painting teacher in both the US and Canada teaches the Master Series Workshop-Residences during January and February every year at the Atlantic Center for the Arts in New Smyrna Beach, FL. He also teaches in Asheville, Maine, and New Orleans. He is the author of the popular book, Expressive Drawing, published in 2010. Katherine’s company, ArtsWrite, provides professional writing for artists. 

Shared Pathways will run through February 28.
