Walking into the Kellner Gallery at Abington Art Center is a silent color explosion. Our favorites were the yellow paintings which were promises of the warmth and energy of Spring. 

Each of the paintings consists of brush dabs of thick pigment that obscure energetic underpaintings. Just a peek shows through the calm repititive quieting.
