(Galveston, TX) – Selected digital paintings from Chalda Maloff’s “Sea Jewels” series will be featured at PeckArts Gallery from March 5¬¬–June 5, 2016. The exhibition will open during the Galveston ArtWalk in the Historic Downtown District on Saturday, March 5, 2016 from 6:00-9:00 p.m. The ArtWalk is an organized evening of gallery receptions and art related activities that are hosted by local commercial galleries and non-profit art venues. This event is free and open to the public.
Chalda Maloff describes her “Sea Jewels” series of artworks as “underwater flights of the imagination, mini-vacations for the eye and the psyche. Each piece employs a mixture of aesthetic techniques designed to engage and stimulate.” Maloff’s art reflects her abiding optimism and faith in the order of our world. Her process, sometimes intellectual and sometimes intuitive, consists of working and reworking shapes and colors towards an expressive whole that will have the power to evoke emotion, sensuality, and spirituality.
Maloff has exhibited her art throughout North and South America. Recent awards include the Guerilla Painter Award from the Visual Arts Society of Texas and Second Mention of Honor at the VIII Salón de Arte Digital in Venezuela. Recent solo exhibits have been at Ceres Gallery in New York City and Morris Graves Museum of Art in California.
Austin artist, Chalda Maloff, is a former resident of Galveston and has worked at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB). To learn more about her digital paintings please visit www.chalda.com.
