DESCRIPTION

The public is invited to a reception to meet the artists on Sunday, February 24th, from 3 to 5 pm.    Cosmic space and dimension are explored combining traditional methods and new technologies. Diane Destiny creates many of her computer-generated images with the aid of and ink-jet large format printer. For her, the computer’s capability of duplicating images allows for a more intuitive and improvisional way of working. The images are captured using photography or actual objects places on the scanner, selecting all or part of several scans, the images are then manipulated into many layers, enhanced, partially erased, duplicated, painted and collaged. Destiny treats digital technology as one more way to expand the range in which to express her vision.

Merrilyn Duzy, in the Cosmic and Language Series, combines her interest in the universe, with its galaxies, stars, the quarks and quasars, universal languages and symbols with a spiritual aspect. She uses impressions of the vastness of space and symbols that relate to humankind or other intelligent life forms that may exist.

Norma Jean Squires becomes an artist advocate when she describes the meaning of her work. She states, “With a glimpse at the grand scheme of things (both microcosmic and macrocosmic) I want to draw the viewer into a deeper understanding – that we are all constituents of the whole and that, as such, we can and must heal ourselves and our earth.”
