NEW YORK - June 5, 2014 - PRLog -- Christi Scofield Fine Art is pleased to have two works featured in a group exhibition opening today at prestigious Brooklyn gallery Arcilesi & Homberg Fine Art (AHA). http://www.christiscofield.com/

The first work, new to Scofield's oeuvre and entitled Gratitude, features silhouetted poppies on a serene blue background.  "Poppies are a symbol of remembrance," Scofield said from her studio on Manhattan's Upper East Side, "and that reminded me how important it is for us to remember all of the things we are thankful for. Studies have shown that regularly being grateful improves both health and happiness."

Gratitude is mixed media and acrylic on canvas. It measures 28" x 22".  It is the first work in a new series on the theme of being thankful.

The second work, True Love, is acrylic on panel and measures 12” x 12”.  It is based on the biblical passage Romans 12:9, which reads: "Let love be genuine, abhor what is evil, hold fast to what is good."

"The heart represents genuine love that is overcoming evil, represented by the lightning bolts behind the heart," Scofield commented.  "The hands on the four corners symbolize the support and embrace of what is good."

The exhibition will be on view until June 29, 2014, at AHA, 111 Front Street in the heart of DUMBO, Brooklyn.  http://www.aha-fineart.com/ For more information and visuals, please contact Francesca Arcilesi at Francesca@aha-fineart.com.

Based in New York City, Scofield is known for creating artwork with positive, uplifting themes and bold, vibrant colors.  Her most popular series of paintings, entitled Pop Up Theology, highlights inspiring messages from world religions.  Pop Up Theology has been a big hit with collectors across the United States.  http://www.prlog.org/12228311-christi-scofields-pop-up-th...
