About This Initiative
From painters to sculptors, on August 28, we welcomed five new artists into the AOL Artists program. Erika Somogyi, Jessica Snow, Lauren Cotton, Matt W. Moore, and Rebeca Raney created eleven new canvases. Erika Somogyi, a Brooklyn-based artist, creates complex sculptures and paintings that are both beautiful and fun. Rebeca Raney, another Brooklyn-based artist, creates work of a similar nature, using paint and sculpture to create work that is exciting and playful. The two actually met prior to joining the AOL Artists community while exhibiting at Monya Rowe Gallery. Jessica Snow, a San Francisco-based artist, is known for her colorful geometric paintings and installations. Her most recent group exhibition included the work of renowned artists such as Ellsworth Kelly and Sol LeWitt. Lauren Cotton, a Connecticut-based artist, creates large-scale installations out of neon tape. Her work has been exhibited at multiple galleries along the East Coast. Matt W Moore, based in Portland, Maine, creates work that spans a multitude of disciplines. His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums internationally.
