We are pleased to present the first wave of this expansive collection of mixed-media works by abstract artist Beth Donahue.

Pieces include several from Donahue’s “American Zen” series (exhibited in the South Gallery at West Branch, Stowe, VT in 2015) which are boldly painted, non-representational imagery where language and painting are infused with spirit.

“The core of my work can be read as having a meditative quality, passages which are at their quietest, contemplative and at their most energized, fully brazen.”
“I am drawn to and respond to the multiplicity of repetitive patterns which occur at different scales in nature. These forms repeatedly surface throughout my paintings.”
“I am most centered when I am painting,” Donahue said. “For me, the act of painting is emotionally nourishing. It creates a meditative space. And because abstract art is non-literal, it can take you to places where the confines of description cannot. Painting for me requires complete surrender, tweaking the genie within to respond. I consider the studio my sanctuary.”
