DESCRIPTION

Peter Honig is an assemblage artist and photographer. A scrap-yard philosopher, his compositions of melancholic objects embody wit and pathos.

Drawings of people reading, sketched during her daily commute, are translated into prints on library cards and newspapers by artist Mary V. Marsh. Commuters engaged in their own private world intersect with the surfaces of the materials, the nostalgia of the old cards and newspapers suggest expiring mediums and a history of the changing methods of reading.

Painter Jamie Morgan’s interest in the urban landscape has evolved from a desire to make art from daily experience and to focus on moments of silence amidst the bustle and change of city life, where the interface of the constructed world becomes seamless with the natural.

Responding to the interplay between natural phenomena and the manmade structures that surround her, artist Anna Vaughan utilizes the formal elements of line, form, color and space as she intuitively draws out points of connection and diversion between these two worlds.
