Piles of Colored Pencilsby Yolanda Ramirez, 2015, colored pencil on paper, 22.25 x 30 inches (left); Cakes with rubberband by Evelyn Reyes, 2003, oil pastel on paper, 11.25 x 17.25 inches © Creativity Explored Licensing

A two-person exhibition of work by Evelyn Reyes and Yolanda Ramirez.

This exhibition of artwork by Evelyn Reyes and Yolanda Ramirez explores the transformation of shapes in a variety of colors and media.

Reyes works almost exclusively in the medium of oil pastel on paper. Her highly abstracted Carrots are a favorite theme. Perhaps inspired by her fellow artist, Ramirez also draws simple domestic subjects in colored pencil and graphite, but her style is less abstract and more stylized.

Both artists have been working at Creativity Explored for over 20 years.
