Petersburg-based artists Dolly Holmes and Mark Pehanich like to paint in the abstract. They use line, shape and color to illustrate the intuitive. The duo’s colorful mixed media paintings will be on display Friday, Feb 12, at the Eric Schindler Gallery for the show “Paint and Other Materials.” The pairing makes visual sense: Holmes’ uncluttered expanses and Pehanich’s carefully considered simplicities complement each other in a push and pull rooted in primitivism and abstract expressionism. Both artists convey a vibrant tranquility that’s devoid of complication or distraction. By giving their paintings room to breathe, the elemental approach frees the viewer from the demands of literal interpretation. The opening reception for “Paint and Other Materials” runs from 7-9 p.m. The show will be on display through March 5. For information, call 644-5005 or visit ericschindlergallery.com.
