Artist Reception: Brian RileyAdult Events 11/14/2018, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM Main Library – Isabel Rose Café
You are invited to attend an art reception to meet the artist on Wednesday, November 14 from 6pm – 8pm.
The Montclair Public Library’s popular art series continues with “COLORS”, created by artist Brian Riley on display from November 1 through November 29 in the gallery of the Main Library, 50 South Fullerton Avenue, Montclair, NJ 07042.
In his latest body of work simply titled COLORS, Bloomfield, New Jersey Artist, Brian Riley expresses concepts of place, energy, body, balance, rhythm, nature, and abstraction into beautifully composed moments of colorful wonder. Under the influence of this artist’s hand, paint and pastel become vehicles to transport us into our own imagination.
Over the past 25 years Brian has found that the motivation behind the art he makes is rooted in a personal investigation into how the external affects the internal and vice versa. His art, like a murmuration, is the result of the melding of energies, guided by intuition. Creativity itself has been the muse he follows.
Choosing to not over explain his work, Brian allows doorways into our personal interpretive world to open thus enabling creative energy to manifest as inspiration for the cycle to continue. “If my love for creative energy can manifest into something that inspires, then the work I do is successful.”
This Colorful, expressive and fun body of work will be on view at the Montclair Public Library during the month of November and is not to be missed.
You can see more about Brian on his web site www.brlmt.com.
