Marcia Burtt Studio presents Artist Focus: Anne Ward, a group exhibition exploring color and pattern in glimpses of suburban life. Within these casual tableaux, Ward finds repeating forms and patterns, discovering examples of nature replicated in the manmade. Flowering tablecloths blend with cut blooms, an orange chimney plays off the fruit hanging on the trees. Her closeup still life paintings feature bright hues and impasto brush work.

Complementing Ward’s paintings and exploring similar themes and forms are works by Dana Hooper, Michael Ferguson, Patricia Doyle, Susan Petty, Ann Lofquist, Ian Roberts, Marilee Krause, Marcia Burtt, Jeff Yeomans, and Bill Dewey.
