Press Release

 The Eye is the First Circle

May 3rd to June 2nd, 2007

Opening reception: May 3rd, 6 – 8 P.M.

On May 3rd, 2007, Betty Cuningham Gallery will open its second show for Abby Leigh. Leigh will be presenting a new body of work titled: The Eye is the First Circle.  The exhibition includes a selection of drawings and nine paintings.

The title for this exhibition is taken from Ralph Waldo Emerson’s essay “Circle” from 1841.

“The eye is the first circle; the horizon is the second and throughout nature this primary picture is repeated without end.”

This view of the natural world is a fundamental assumption that informs all of Leigh’s work.
