Art Show 'On the Horizon' Opens Feb. 28 in Anaba Tea Room

Artist Beki Borman's paintings focus on an experience of color through the filter of landscape. An opening reception starts at 5 p.m.

Anabe Tea Room's latest art show, On the Horizon, opens 5 p.m. on Feb. 28.

Artist Beki Borman's paintings focus on an experience of color through the filter of landscape.

"I exaggerate the simple shapes and color relationships I find of interest to create a slightly hyper-realized image," Borman said in a press release. "I use a palette knife as my primary tool to build planes of thick creamy paint. The texture supports an experience of object as well as image."

An opening reception is set from 5  to 7 p.m., at the tea room located at 2107 E. Capitol Dr., in the basement of the Garden Room, and will remain on display through April 28. It is free and open to the public. 

Borman is a Milwaukee native who has attended the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design where she received her bachelors of fine arts in painting in 2004. Since graduating, she has exhibited both locally and nationally.

She paints landscapes in oil using bright colors and a textured surface. Some of her influences include Vincent Van Gogh, Wolf Kahn, and Wayne Thiebaud.

She currently works out of her home studio in West Allis, and her work is represented by the Woodwalk Gallery in Egg Harbor.
