The new Elisa Contemporary Art Gallery exhibit, Summer in the City, opens June 5 at the Elisa Contemporary Art Riverdale Gallery. This Summer group show focuses on architecture and cityscapes. The show will run though September 18 (open in August by appointment only). Summer in the City features the artwork of Turkish artist, Yasemin Kaçkar-Demirel, Connecticut artist, Dale Najarian and Hawaii artist, Jason Wright. The brightly color abstract cityscapes of Yasemin Kaçkar-Demirel are composed of buildings and structures, both real and imagined from around the world. The exhibit features three Cityscape Shadow series paintings by Dale Najarian. This latest series merges the realistic quality of a photograph with the abstract translation of a landscape to depict a dreamlike painting that draws you in. Through the use of clean geometric lines, precise shapes and complex perspectives, Hawaii artist Jason Wright creates dramatic landscapes that are both inviting yet isolating.
