‘Hidden Color’ Opens in Romano Gallery November 5
Joanne Miceli

The paintings of Catherine Drabkin are on display in The Romano Gallery from November 5 to December 8, giving students and members of the community a chance to observe and study works that have been inspired by the rhythms of nature and music. The painter and animator’s work includes everyday elements from a found object garden or a chaotic kitchen. Ms. Drabkin translates these forms into paintings that use color to apply musical structure to her lived experience, and her pieces create visual dances of form to build a conversation between exterior reality and the imagination.

Ms. Drabkin holds a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art and an MFA from Queens College (CUNY). Represented by Kraushaar Galleries since 1994, her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is included in many public and private collections. A founding faculty member of the Delaware College of Art and Design, she has also taught at the University of Nebraska/Omaha, Southern Connecticut State University, Seton Hill University, Point Park University and Dartmouth College. 

An artist’s reception will be held at The Romano Gallery on November 15, beginning at 7 p.m., and members of the public are welcome to attend.
