 March 29, 2013 (Raleigh, NC) ? Auction First, a professional real estate auction agency, and the ChromaZones, a local group of award-winning artists that specialize in two-dimensional abstract art, will present a special art exhibition onSunday, April 14, from 2-4 p.m., at the mid-century modern home of Al  and Suzy Purrington at 6108 Lost Valley Road, Raleigh, NC 27612. The event is free and open to the public.

?Abstract art is beautifully presented in the sleek, open ambience of a Modernist house,? said Sarah Sonke, auctioneer/broker with AuctionFirst. ?The Purringtons and I are delighted to give the ChromaZones this ideal setting for one of their shows.?

The 4500-square-foot, Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired house, designed by Raleigh architect Abie Harris and built in 1967, features an open floor plan where the entrance foyer, living room, dining space, and sunken media room with built-in seating and stone fireplace flow seamlessly into each other.  Floor-to-ceiling glass across the rear elevation and clerestory windows above a loft-like office overlooking the living space bring an abundance of natural light into the interior. The glazing also provides panoramic views of the forest surrounding the house near Umstead Park.

Built in 1967, the house and eight-acre property will be sold at auction on May 21.

?Sarah and the Purringtons have provided us with this phenomenal venue to showcase our work, ? said Sys Oppenlander, one of the founding members of the ChromaZones.  ?And likewise, we?ve provided them with a colorful backdrop to showcase the house.  The contemporary style, vibrant color scheme, and even the dimensions of both the house and the artwork really complement each other.?

The ChromaZones members originally came together during a charity fundraising effort and promotion of the 2009 Raleigh SPARKcon celebration.  They created a 15-piece collaborative work for display during the event and, as an educational effort, painted en plein air on Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh.  They donated the proceeds from the sales of both their individual artworks and their collaborative piece to charity.

These collaborative donations and live painting events form the foundation of the ChromaZones? mission, but the members also mount group exhibits showcasing their individual artwork in various venues throughout the Triangle ? such as the Purrington house.

Sonke and the ChromaZones invite anyone interested in abstract art and mid-century Modernist residential design to join them for the April 14 exhibition and open house.
