Ron Haynie: Playing with Light

Ron Haynie: Playing with Light

September 8 through October 25, 2009

Ron Haynie's work is the culmination of a painting tradition encouraged at American University that delicately balanced representation and abstraction while the various "isms" of the postmodernist era came and went. In Haynie's hands, paint performed as material, light, color, space, gesture, and feeling all at once.
