Artistic adventure fallen flat

Can graphic design ever truly be considered as a fine art form? Ren Adams has taken on that question by exploring the combination of printmaking and digital media into a collection of surreal two-dimensional images called “Alchemy of Image/The Language of Information Space.” These graphic pieces are striking aesthetically, yet leave something to be desired after initial observation.   Adams blends an interest in history, science, technology, art, and basically everything about the...

For the Child Within

Maseman’s colorful and quirky etchings feature anachronistic modes of travel and incongruous characters.  These protagonists travel through their world, perhaps looking or searching for something. They don’t know where or when they will find it, or maybe even what “it” is, but they have an abiding faith that they will reach their destination.  Underlying much of Maseman’s work are reflections about home—whether it is a place one is going to, leaving from, or is carried within. Maseman’s works... [more]

Prints by Jeff Simpson

Jeff Simpson's work focuses on the beauty of man-made structures such as buildings, power lines, and bridges. He juxtaposes them with natural settings which include the sky, moon, or trees. Simpson's black and white relief prints create a timeless feel. Demonstration during the reception: There will be a relief demonstration by Jeff Simpson from 6:30 - 7 PM. For years I have been fascinated by relief printmaking. My first attempts were back in 2000. My work today is very much based on... [more]

Beth Kassay

    'Everything in life I learned from the chicken coop' is the motto of this playful exhibition. From kindness to sorrow, politics to social behavior, Kassay gets her inspiration for life and work from the chicken and roosters she raises. Rendered in a sophisticated color palette, she captures their fluffy back ends, scaly legs, rubber-like wattles and silky feathers. This is a joyful show which brings to life these complex and beautiful... [more]

Pamela DiMauro

      Composed out of hundreds of small lines, and overlaid with graphic blocks of color, DiMauro's etchings are reminiscent of both the work of Albrecht Durer and Japanese botanical wood block prints. DiMauro wonders at plants and how effortlessly they make growing look, how beautifully they cycle through the seasons, and how graceful they are in their dying. DiMauro's etchings are elegant, subtle, and far removed from the average... [more]

Elegently Blended Collages

      Shirley Levy's one-of a kind abstract pieces are rooted in a life-long love affair with paper and papermaking. She combines etchings and colored papers in a playful, yet systematic and explorative manner. The resulting designs are colorful yet subtle, and elegantly blend organic textures with geometric shapes.     ARTIST STATEMENT My images are very process-oriented because I love to explore new and different materials. At the same time, I am always curious to find out how a... [more]
