Steven & Katherine Aimone
Shared Pathways: Steven and Katherine Aimone will open on February 2, 2016 at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery in the Eau Gallie Arts District of Melbourne, FL. Katherine and Steven will be present at the First Friday Opening on February 5th, from 5:30 pm through 8:30 pm, to meet, greet, and discuss their paintings. Both artists’ bodies of work are based upon internal work, communicated through abstract means.
Steve and Katherine are freshly returned from a painting sabbatical, from October through December of 2015, in Cortona, Italy. This exhibition features some of their work created there. The couple maintains studios in Asheville, NC and on Monhegan Island, ME. They work and grow as artists, supporting one another in the pursuit of their dreams, aspirations, and goals.
Katherine says about her work: “My work is about experiencing beauty—that vulnerable state that is accessible each day, but often overlooked in our push to succeed and take care of practical concerns.” Her paintings were hung at the American Embassy in Moldova from 2010-14 through the Art in Embassies Program, and she had a solo exhibition in Asheville during 2015. She is currently organizing a national exhibition that opens in April for the new Greenville Creative Arts Center. Together with Dr. Nancy Hillis, she teaches workshops called Doing the Work of Your Life: Moving Beyond Fear in Abstract Art.
Steven says about his work, “My work is visual poetry, speaking indirectly and metaphorically about the human experience. The paintings serve as gateways, affording access to complex, internal states of emotion, psyche, and spirit.” Steven’s work has been the subject of solo and group exhibitions in Florida, New York, London and more. His works are represented in corporate and private collections.
Steve, a nationally recognized painting teacher in both the US and Canada teaches the Master Series Workshop-Residences during January and February every year at the Atlantic Center for the Arts in New Smyrna Beach, FL. He also teaches in Asheville, Maine, and New Orleans. He is the author of the popular book, Expressive Drawing, published in 2010. Katherine’s company, ArtsWrite, provides professional writing for artists.
