MAY:

Motion/ Emotion – New photography by Pat Berrett, Tim Anderson and Carol Mell

 

Three local photographers come together in this exhibition of landscapes, architecture and figure. Tim Anderson enchants us with beautifully rendered images of French architecture in the vein of film noir. Pat Berrett captures a perfect point of stillness when a dancer’s movement is fully extended, however he surprises us by placing the dancers in the New Mexico landscape.  Carol Mell’s painterly photographs manipulate light, using the passage of time to produce colorful, ethereal landsapes.

 

Exhibition dates: May 1-30, 2015

Sneak Preview: April 28 – 30

First Friday Artscrawl Reception: Friday, May 1, 2015, 5 – 8 pm

JUNE: Touch/Tone- William Ruller, Susan Reid, and Saul Hoffman Newest gallery artists William Ruller and Saul Hoffman join Susan Reid in this group exhibition of textured abstract paintings that beg to be touched. Ruller creates large, tangible, subtly colored geometric paintings. He combines oil paint with textures of crumbled brick and concrete to represent the frailties of humanity; and the erosion of lives that once existed. Hoffman’s clay mosaics are diametrically opposed to Ruller’s in that they are bursting with small, colorful and almost candy-like details and pattern.  Middle ground is created by the aboriginal inspired dot paintings of Susan Reid.  Her deliberate geometric pattern have a meditative, yet mesmerizing quality about them that is uniquely her own. Exhibition dates: June 5 – 27, 2015

Sneak Preview: June 2 – 4, 2015
