Aligned with Nature Paintings by David Welch and Cynthia Wister

Welch’s paintings express his interest in the landscape, gardening, and human existence in harmony with nature. Wister works in plein air to capture a moment from the outside world in her paintings. Using rich colors and impasto-like brushwork Wister captures the life force of nature.

Female Gaze/Male Figure (curated by Diane Alire)
How do women view men? Is it through the lens of desire or objectivity? What does it mean to reverse the roles and examine how women look at men? This show will feature eight photographers exploring the concept of “the female gaze” by photographing the male nude.
