Artist Reception: Saturday, October 20, 4:00 -6:30pm

Urban Array

Cynthia Chatman

Any big city is made up of multiple facets and layers. The people, animals, traffic, buildings, even the inevitable decay come together to create a certain texture and beauty. Cynthia Chatman uses spatters, layers of paint and fragmented images to capture this vibrancy in Urban Array, a selection of paintings and mixed-media collages. Please join us for the artist reception on Saturday, October 20, from 4pm to 6:30pm, for live music, wine and refreshments.

About the Artist

“I enjoy depicting various subject matters in a variety of media.  I’ve been an active member of the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition since 2003 and exhibit with them three times a year.
I’ve recently retired from a 28-year career as an art teacher in the N.Y.C. public schools.  This marks a new beginning for me as I continue to explore my mastery of oil, watercolor, collage, portraiture and cityscapes.” - Cynthia Chatman,
