New Exhibition in spring 2013 “EARLY BLOOM”

February 8 – April 7, 2013

Opening Reception Friday, February 8, 6 – 9 pm


On view at AG Gallery for the early Spring will be the work of four artists whose works are inspired by natures surrounding us and we would like to give our friends and neighbors the hint of spring breeze bit earlier.

Chris Carter | Aprile Elcich | Maria Montiel | Sasha Prood

Chris Carter has a long career as an artist and is actively creating many projects related to art and people. She lives and works in Califon, NJ. Her art spans from realism to the totally abstract, from illustration and architectural renderings to expanses of color fields. Her diversity includes the media in which she works as well as the sources of inspiration for her paintings, music, dance, mythology, textures and patterns. The common thread is her expression of movement through space, of the moment before as well as the moment yet to come.

Aprile Elcich is a graphic designer and collage artist from Toronto, Ontario. Aprile is forever grateful that she gets to create for a living. She has exhibited her collage works in Toronto and New York, and has been published in Cutting Edges, Kolaj, and How Magazine. She is also the founder of the well-loved collage blog Notpaper.

Maria Montiel is an artist/graphic designer specialized in textile design, with several years of experience in the field and with clients originating from Venezuela, Canada, United States, United Kingdom, among others. Originally from Venezuela, the study of Maria stands at Madrid, but she acknowledges that much of her influence comes from Latin American with its vivid colors and organic textures. However, the Iberian metropolis also defines some sight with experimental organized chaos and neon signs. Maria, comes from a home where art and architecture were a constant stimulus and now translate into a fresh and vibrant work of varied influences, where shapes and natural colors are bi-dimensional conception.

Sasha Prood grew up just outside of Philadelphia, PA and trained at Carnegie Mellon’s School of Design, St. Gallen, Switzerland’s Schule fur Gestaltung and Cooper Union’s typeface design certificate program, Type@Cooper. She is a full-time freelance designer, illustrator and artist who currently resides in Brooklyn, NY filled to the brim with plants. Sasha creates hand lettering, illustrations, patterns and graphics using pencil, pen and watercolor with the computer. Thematically, her work leans toward the organic, natural and scientific with vintage, utilitarian and childhood influences. Animals, vegetables and minerals of all kinds are commonly found in Sasha’s illustrations, creating everything from logos to posters to apparel graphics.

Opening reception will be held on Friday, February 8, 6 – 9 pm.
