Show Closes: December 28, 2018
New Work By: Mark Foster, Louis D'Amico, Allen Powell, Charles La Fond, Chris Casey, Linda Holland, Anne Englehardt, Margot Geist.
Linda Holland's abstract paintings evoke realms, enigmatic, yet with palpable sense of place. Layered and blended colors, textures and motion invite the viewer to participate in a journey. Her abstract sculptures and paintings have been featured in solo and two-person shows in New Mexico as well as juried regional exhibits. In addition to corporate and private collections, her work has been selected for university, state and municipal art collections.
Margot Geist, states, "Late summer, early fall...and the Farmers' Markets in our city offer panoplies of vegetables that delight the eye as much as the palate. We turn a corner and chance upon an aliveness that nourishes body and mind, if we remain open to kaleidoscopic space. The work here part of a larger series, might be imagined as an invitation to dance with elements, atop fields' brown-wet earth, in the rainbow light of a market mandala."
Chris Casey artist statement, "My pottery is adorned with lines that explore the liminal zone between the concrete and the abstract. These designs are improvised and play to our pattern seeking brains. I'm focused on movement and composition by drawing lines in space."
