Cynthia Knapp Featured Artist at The Umstead Hotel and Spa @ The Umstead Hotel and Spa
Sep 18 – Nov 30 all-day

Based in Atlanta, Knapp will be bringing her expressive art to The Umstead Hotel for exhibition August 1 through November 30. Knapp is known for her musings on the interdependent relationship of natural forms. Fields of color blur, overlap, and interact creating an amalgam of natural shapes, not through representation or expression but rather in portraying the essence of abstraction as seen in the physical environment. At times the work references topography, rock formations or repetitious natural patterning.
