Amy Pleasant and Shift: New World Coming
New work by Amy Pleasant is now on view at Shoreline City Hall on the second floor.

Her previous exhibition, Lessons Learned has been replaced by Shift: New World Coming, a series of acrylic and india ink abstract paintings

In the continuing thread of Pleasant's exploration of generational transitions, these paintings, contain a barely visible traditional underpainting covered by painterly layers and fluid ink images reflecting one generation's willingness to relinquish the role of power to next generation.

These images reflect the old paradigm replaced by the new. In her words, 

While I have made it a focus of my art, we have all been marking the exit and entrance of a generation or two or three. As much as I appreciate and honor the contributions of past generations and of our own, history is the final arbiter of a generation's impact for good or for ill.

The artist will be onsite on August 1st and 2nd, 10am-3pm and will be setting up a studio area in the main lobby of city hall working on a painting over the course of the two days. The public is invited to stop by and see the process and progress of the painting. Shift: New World Coming will be up until mid October.
