Karen Payton and Adonna Ebrahimi show together at Fox Fine Jewelry in Ventura. The joint exhibit, “Flower Power,” will be from March 16-May 12, 2019 with a reception on March 16, 6- 8 p.m. It’s all about the Power of Flowers and surrounding yourself with Joy. Instead of brushstrokes, Karen uses needle and thread to paint her canvas with textiles. Karen celebrates hippies with fabric portraits that look like paintings from far away.
Primarily working in acrylic and incorporating other mixed media, Adonna creates bright, colorful compositions of flowers atop abstract backgrounds. The strokes and colors convey tremendous movement and energy, in a way that is almost chaotic but also somehow serene.
