The Strowd, an upscale nightclub and bar located on East Franklin Street in downtown Chapel Hill, is hosting an artist reception for nationally acclaimed artist, Murry Handler on Thursday, March 24th. Please join them for a festive night to honor one of Chapel Hill’s most highly respected abstract artists.
The Strowd will be displaying over twenty pieces of Handler’s work. His creative output has an exceptionally diverse range. Recognized primarily by his gestural abstract paintings executed with dynamic sweeping brushstrokes in acrylic on canvas, he also produces delicate filmy figural works on paper. His watercolors are conveyed in a brilliant palette, resulting in playful, spontaneous abstractions while large canvases are often swirls of stark black and white images. Inherent in all his work is a strong sense of vibrant movement.
The Strowd is located at 159 ½ East Franklin Street above Sutton’s Drug Store off Amber Alley. The reception is from 6-9 pm. Light hors d’oeuvres and wine available.
