In the Main Gallery - Earl Chuvarsky & Donny Dixon
Closing Reception: April 12, 6-9 pm
Through exploring more traditional working methods while focusing on contemporary subjects in unexpected or unfamiliar situations - Chuvarsky’s paintings seek to document current events, the artists daily life, the absurdity of modern politics, and childhood nostalgia. All while examining the placement of the subject within the picture plane and the feeling it invokes.
Donny Dixon manipulates fire to explore powerful imagery of daydreams and nightmares. Drawing upon ideas and pictures that flicker just outside of consciousness, Dixon uses elements of fire such as smoke and ash to permanently sear these images onto his canvases.
In the Annex - Kristen Wright
Opening Reception: Friday, March 29, 6-8 pm
"Paper Dreams" is a collection of dream-inspired illustrations made over 5 years.
The stories of my dreams are vividly fantastical, and I use paper to illustrate the icons, figures, and scenes of my subconscious. Paper cutting and color choices are deliberate, and the transformation in form and meaning, from memory to paper shapes, is what inspires me to create.
