November 17, 2017, through January 7, 2018
Reception: Friday, November 17, 2017 5-7 pm
Celebrate the season and another year of beautiful landscape art with our annual Holiday Show and Party featuring gallery artists and guest printmakers Sara Woodburn and Leonardo Nuñez.
Nuñez and Woodburn both create prints from carvings, but to very different ends. Precise detail is the hallmark of Nuñez’s reductive linoleum cuts and etchings; Woodburn’s emphasis on shape and overlapping colors invites symbolic reading of her subject matter.
Patricia Doyle, Marcia Burtt, and Marilee Krause emphasize landscape in flux.
Doyle’s big brush gestures relay the power of the Pacific.
Burtt’s rapid brushstrokes and dynamic color capture change in the weather and tides—ephemeral moments made permanent on canvas.
Using fluid line and pooling watercolor, Krause finds tranquility in impermanence.
Mixing watermedia on plastic paper, Randall David Tipton experiments with layering washes and line, discovering otherworldly terrain within the mundane.
Layers of color, optical mixing, and texture in Michael Ferguson’s large acrylics are as much his subject as the trees and ponds he depicts. Flora becomes decoration.
