Heart Conversations exhibition

Gallery 527 in Jerome gave me a featured exhibition for the month of September 2016. I called it “Heart Conversations.”

Articles about the exhibition were printed in 4 area newspapers, along with a huge color photo of the painting on the upper left, “Nighttime Conversation.”

From the press release:

“The paintings are like personal stories, only just their distilled essence,” said gallery owner Donna Chesler. “Each one has a very specific feeling, distinct from the others, which is unusual in abstract art.”

Engelmann explains, “The title, ‘Heart Conversations,’ refers to my heartfelt relationship with what I call the painting spirit. Like a dynamic conversation, the painting spirit actually helps me make a much better painting, leading to a surprise ending that reflects my seed idea in an intriguing way.”
