Linda Tharp – Bloom: paintings and monotypes 

a solo exhibition at Sweet Lorraine Gallery
April 7-29
Reception with wine and hors d’oeuvre Saturday, April 14, 6-8 pm

“Efflorescence,” (detail) monotype, 2011 

Bloom can be flowering, soft petals pushing through the hard casing of a bud. It is also the bloom of mold through the rind of a cheese or a damp wall; the efflorescence of mineral salts on the surface of concrete; the bloom of oil on water or algae in the sea. In this sense bloom is a process where transformation occurs from within and without simultaneously, which finds a parallel in the abstract paintings and monotypes of Linda Tharp.  Come share a glass of cheer and toast all things blooming at Sweet Lorraine Gallery on Saturday April 14th, from 6  to 8 pm. Sweet Lorraine Gallery is a hidden treasure in Red Hook, Brooklyn, a short walk from the shops and restaurants of Carroll Gardens. Located in Screwball Spaces on the third floor of the Treasure Island Storage building, the gallery is open to the public by appointment (718.938.5505).
