Obelisk Home at the Inspired Commerce Building 214 W. Phelps, Obelisk Home and OH Gallery presents Artist Stephanie Cramer. December’s Art Walk will be showing Stephanie Cramer’s new work in her tenth solo exhibition at Obelisk Home with her collection called “Second Look”.

Second Look: Painting is a push and pull of visual weight that seems to give the painting a life without exact representation. It starts with color and moves with a mark or gesture to begin the story. Painting has always been the language I find closest to my own internal dialogue. Most of my paintings are about relationships or rhythms.  I like the open space where the viewer can add their interpretation to the landscape or setting.  I do not begin to have the answers.  I am seeking to give the viewer a choice, to put their story into the picture. The abstractions are again a push and pull of the gesture. How does one color play off its complement? The exhibition is a balance of abstracts with elements of figures. The series is composed of mostly large canvases with smaller more moderately priced work.”

About the artist: “It all started in Stephanie Cramer’s first art class at age nine. She knew at that time she wanted to be an artist. Attracted to color and gesture she has not stopped creating since. From Springfield, Missouri, raised by academic parents, she found her own success through art. She graduated from Missouri State in 1983 and has her artwork in collections throughout New England and the Midwest. She was also the Director of Programs & Exhibitions at the Springfield Regional Arts Council for nine years and has since moved on to creating art full time. Painting has always been at the core of Stephanie’s soul, and has saved her through numerous difficult times. Her work exudes a reflection of self and her love for art.”

Join Obelisk and Stephanie Cramer on December 6th from 6-10 p.m. In addition to Cramer’s work, Obelisk will also have a display of art $500 and Under from OH Gallery represented artists. Open for FFAW from 11a.m. to 10 p.m. Normal business hours Tuesday – Friday 11a.m.-7p.m. Saturday 11a.m. -5p.m.
