The Abstract Art of Donna Mohan and Cyndie Katz
on Exhibit Now Through August 31
“Hiding in Plain Sight”, 24x24, acrylic on canvas by Cyndie KatzAMHERST – The Friends of the Amherst Town Library are pleased to present the Abstract Art of Donna Mohan and Cyndie Katz, friends from New Boston since the 1980s. In the spring of 2018 they got together to talk about their art. It didn't take long to realize how similar their processes were.
Each had used her quilting background to propel her into less traditional abstract work. Since that meeting they've taught a workshop together and spent a week in Mexico painting canvases and papers collaboratively for inclusion in new works. This is their second joint show.
