Opening reception for local RiNo artist, Susan Martinez, First Friday March 1st from 6–9pm at RiNo Made inside Zeppelin Station. Drinks and snacks available.

While using acrylics, oil bar, graphite and oil pastel Martinez says her process is all intuition. She begins each painting with initial mark making and then starts a conversation with the piece letting it evolve as it will, building layers by applying paint and then scratching or wiping paint away until the point of completion. This point varies constantly as it could take hours or months to finish one painting. What emerges is a body of work that reflects the energy of abstract expressionism as well as the strong combination and placement of color. For Martinez it is the process that is the important part of creating. Just as she prepares food and layers ingredients to find the perfect balance that excites the taste buds, her paintings are created to excite the eyes and stir the soul.

Winter Store Hours: Mon–Sat 11am–7pm, Sun 12–6pm
