Reception - April 29 6-8PM
The Artist will discuss her work
On May 8 and May 22 at 2:00PM
“About a Beach” is an art Exhibit by painter Harriet Sobie Goldstein. Goldstein has attempted to recreate the atmosphere of her favorite Florida beach in Gallery I of the Phoenix Gallery. Oil paintings, which are accompanied by the sound of the surf, line the walls. The paintings depict the beach and water during various times of the day and weather. Each of the paintings recreates and reflects a different time of day, night and weather. I have included calm days with beautiful pink tinged clouds and luminescent water as well as the frequent windy times when the air is filled with drops blown across the tumultuous ocean.” Harriet Sobie Goldstein. Regular gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday 11:30 – 6:00 PM.

The Phoenix Gallery is proud to present “CIRCLE SQUARED”, New
Work by Busser Howell April 28 through May 22, 2010.
My new work deals with a vedantic search for harmony and truth. The basis of these works started several years ago as paper collages on canvas. It is through revisiting these works, adding paint and new techniques, and making them new that I attempt to merge time in search of a greater universal message that is not the product of a particular period or emotional state, but rather, an evolution of the self.
Creating these breathtaking works in spite of his sight impairment is truly a testament to Mr. Howell’s determination. Blindness forced Busser Howell to find his vision from within his imagination, his intuition, and his soul. “Vision is centered in the brain, mentally, I see every stroke that I paint” Busser is writing a book, Perceiving Art Without Sight.
Busser Howell has exhibited his work with the VSA, the international organization on arts and disability at the Armory show in New York in 2009 and 2010. His work is in the permanent Museum Collections of the Hunt Morgan Museum, Lexington, KY and the New Britain Museum, New Britain, CT.
Please join us on Thursday, April 29th, from 6-8 PM to meet the artist. Regular gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11:30 – 6:00 PM.
