"Rhythms in Translation," an exhibit featuring abstract impressions of movement, opens Friday, Feb. 18, at the Nuartlink Gallery on Post Road East.

The exhibit features work by seven artists who share an interest in investigating rhythmic languages and translating the abstract concepts into visual forms. Mediums include painting, relief, drawing and works on paper.

The show opens with a reception Friday evening from 6 to 8 and will be on view until March 21.

On display will be the work of Peter Barrett, Rachel Budde, Michi Colacicco, Lori Ellison, Lisa Hamilton, Kathleen Kucka and Jesse Lambert. Their influences are drawn from intuition, pop-culture, geometric and organic patterns, and an admiration for the traditional elements and shapes referencing fluid dynamics and motion in nature.
