Arrangements features current paintings by Roosevelt Islander Toshiko Kitano Groner. Groner is a colorist whose works we’ve admired and reported on many times in the past. Often, we’ve appreciated her art at local galleries, but we’ve also seen it in other juried shows around the city. We have no doubt you’ll find the same satisfaction we have in this collection at the Octagon Gallery, 888 Main Street, Roosevelt Island.
In recent artworks, while never losing her passion for colors, Groner perfected her ability to discover the art in geometric design, but now, she’s brought in the floral touch she’s used before.
This artist has a profound gift for inserting vivid colors into context. These arrangements almost dance with joy.
