DESCRIPTION

Although the artists use diverse media, they share a commitment to the purposeful exploration of the personal, intagible and the transcendent.

Linda Pearlman Karlsberg, Transient Visions, Paintings, inspired by evanescent moments, that reveal the light, lushness, tranquility and atmosphere at play in intimate corners of the landscape.
(Treasure Room)

A particular time and light is the generating spirit of Karlsberg’s landscapes. She depicts the resulting
interplay of color and atmosphere, and the play of one texture and shape against another. The places
depicted suspend us in their stillness and capture our attention through their compelling beauty. While
celebrating this splendor these scenes also evoke life’s fragility inherent in this perpetual reshaping and reordering, this cycle of abundance and loss.

Carole P. Kunstadt is exhibiting a comprehensive selection from her ongoing series Sacred Poems. The pages of an antique book of Psalms are reconstructed forming a series of works which are a celebration of life and the beauty that's contained within. (Corridor Gallery)

The aged paper suggests the temporal quality of our lives and the vulnerability of memory and history. Kunstadt is embracing its inherent qualities while transforming the book’s pages. The paper itself gains significance through the process and merges with a new intent resulting in a presentation that evokes an ecumenical offering: poems of praise and gratitude.
