 AUGUST: Freedom and Constraint:  Fused Glass by Lisa Chernoff and Paintings by  Rachel Popowcer and Raul Dorn

Lisa Chernoff’s fused glass pieces evoke a soothing tension between the bold use of color along with the cold density of the glass itself. She captures intricate subtleties within the layers of glass and which are reinforced by the shadows projected on the wall. Rachel Popowcer carefully builds up her paintings with layers of color and personal symbols such as hummingbirds, lines, and the female form. Raul Dorn’s pieces “have no prescribed footwork – only impulse, no finger on the map – just direction. His work has become increasingly less cerebral and calibrated, gaining contact with the turbulence of painting from the gut.”

SEPTEMBER: Human/Nature – Paintings by Alexander Eulert

Alexander Eulert is a California native whose paintings represent humans’ interaction with nature. Delicate and dynamic string lines of paint buzz and trickle around often-bold bands of color, evoking rhythmical compositions, emotional states and natural phenomena. The cubical forms are suggestive of monoliths, pueblos, golden-green fields, or technology and urban constructs.
