Shape rules in Alice Pixley Young’s work. She is also interested in color, atmosphere, and multi-disciplinary approaches, but her exhibition “Nightfall” kept viewers attuned to seeing what she would do next with her inventive use of recurrent shapes. A couple of temporary walls divided the show into three distinct installations. Young staked out the entryway, physically the largest space, with individual but connected works on each wall. This section benefited from being “read” from left to right…see the full review in January/February’s magazine.
