58 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, June 7 - June 13, 1996 Michel exMbits art at Kings CreeK; reception set June 14 Hot off the walls of a solo art show at the Kramerbooks and Af- terwords gallery in Washington, D.C. comes the work of Barbara Michel to hang for the month of June at Kings Creek Country Club. A reception is set for 5:30 to 7 p.m., Friday, June 14 at the club, located in Rehoboth Beach. All interested art lovers are wel- come to visit the exhibit and meet the artist at that time. Reviewed in the Washington Post recently, "Terra Forms", Michel's collection of "warm, earth-toned paintings that evoke the desert and Native American cultures of the Southwest" is termed "amazingly good." The reviewer goes on to describe her larger works as "strong, tightly composed medications on the glo- ry of nature." Her rugged, abstract layered paintings and collages have been attracting interest area-wide in her Potomac, Md. home territory. No Chryssa Wolfe's paintings on display at Rehoboth's Blue Moon through Ju ae Paintings by Chryssa Wolfe of Washington, D.C. are on display at the Blue Moon, a restaurant lo- cated at 35 Baltimore Avenue in Rehoboth Beach, through the month of June. Wolfe, who comes from a long line of Washington, D.C. artists, started painting at the age of 13 and her works are sought by prominent collectors. Her social conscience is her dri- ving force, but her works are char- acterized by humor as well as compassion, expressing bold, im- pressionistic and abstract quali- fies. Women's concerns and prob- lems have figured prominently in her most recent efforts, seen in shows from D.C. to Charleston, S.C. to the Art Expo in New York City. Due to the demand for her work, Wolfe is presenting her first set of reproductions, limited edi- tions of 50 prints on archival pa- per, and a special series of 15 oil reproductions on canvas. Since the oil reproductions are repainted separately, each stands on its own as an individual work. Each of Wolfe's paintings is ac- companied by a story, often whimsical, not only explaining the painting, but offering her unique view of the world. Landmark Publishing has created a calendar devoted to her paintings and sto- ries called "From the Heart," which will be available late next year. For more information call the Blue Moon at 227-6515. "Shoe Sales Man  by acclaimed native Washington, D.C. artist Chryssa Wolfe, is one of the paintings in her exhibit at the Blue Moon restaurant, Rehoboth Beach, through the month of June. J.D.

For more information, contact the Recreation Office at (302) 736-7050. stranger to the metropolitan art world, Michel has shown at the Foundry Gallery in Washington, at Strathmore Hall Art Center in Bethesda, and in the Rockville Civic Center Mansion, where her "Maul Surf" was awarded the Best in Show award late last year. Michel's specialty of abstract naturalism has its origins in her Albuquerque, N.M. childhood years. Her mixed media land- scapes portray the depth and meaning in the mysterious splen- dor of that region. "I strive to capture the awesome forces and fragilities that shape our physical landscape. To do that, I celebrate nature's kaleido- scopic layering of colors, textures and patterns." Primarily a studio painter, Michel works from composite of her own photos and sketches, inte- grating into her compositions ob- jects she has found in various nat- ural locations. Many viewers en- joy the challenge of spotting these cleverly hidden forms on her can- vases.
