A reception will be held from 5-8 p.m., Friday, May 4, as part of the city's art loop. The solo exhibition will showcase paintings that explore Dmytrenko's combination of visual and musical emotional abstractions, projected in a two dimensional work. In this series of works, the artist uses acrylics, oils, and pastels to depict a certain state of mind and mood that she takes from music and her world. The artist is a member and representative in the United States for the International group of six artists, 3rd Paradigm.
