Abstract Paintings by Lori Key

“Inspired by Nature”

Lori graduated from ECU with a BFA in Textile Design and worked as a designer, stylist and colorist in the home furnishings and apparel industries for 20+ years. She was fortunate to be able to freelance for many of those years while starting a family that resulted in two wonderful sons. Even though design work was very enjoyable, Lori found she needed more creative challenges, so she shifted her focus to studio painting and fell in love with self-expression on canvas.

Her goal as an artist is “To explore the nuance of color and texture in all of my work … to evoke emotion and feeling for the viewer…. I paint rather loosely, mostly in the abstract, layering a mix of acrylic, pastel and glaze while experimenting with a variety of methods and tools for added dimension and texture. My subject matter includes old barns, earthscapes, flora, fauna and figurative works.”

Visit the Gallery Wall just outside the Hirsch Center classroom, where these works are currently on exhibition. Also, please join us on Friday, December 8th from 5-7 pm and Saturday, December 9th from 11 am – 3 pm for Artists Holiday Open House at Revolution Mill. Meet Lori Key and the artists of Revolution Mill’s “Studio Row”, and enjoy light refreshments as you meet and mingle with creative folks in their working environments and other art lovers.
