Nine Francois, "Animalia II"

This exhibition will feature 14 new images within Nine Francois' Animalia Series. Nine produces close-up photographs of animals which are presented against a stark white background. Traveling to various animal preserves, the artist shoots up close – very close – with a wide angle lens, and frequently from below to get unusual perspectives. In describing this Francois says, “By isolating the subject against a nearly-bare background, and presenting these animals out of context, the innate power and beauty of their form becomes the subject of the photograph. In this way, these images can become iconic and transcendent. At the same time, photographing from such close proximity also brings particularity and individuality to the animal, especially if the animal makes eye contact with the viewer. At this point, the animal goes beyond being a removed, iconic presence and becomes a palpable unique spirit as individualistic and valuable as any human counterpart."

The opening reception will be February 17, 5-7PM. See all of the photographs here.

"Quiet", New Paintings by Chris Gwaltney

Chris Gwaltney is a painter from Southern California.  He paints in a lush style, combining areas of abstraction with loose figurative elements.  He experiments with sensuous surface finishes, compiling multiple layers of paint and oil stick that show drips and various markings.  Gwaltney’s paintings are open ended; the style is free and unfinished which allows the viewer to fill in the essence of each story. The opening reception will be June 30, 6-8PM. See all of Chris' paintings here.

This two-person exhibition will include paintings by A.J. Oishi and photographs by Thea Schrack.  Oishi's calm and peaceful paintings are created by compiling thousands of small dots. The circular designs that are common throughout her work symbolize individuals and their journey towards a more healthful, conscious life. Schrack's "Sea Glass" ocean-scape photographic series captures the essence of motion, wind and water.

Stephen Foss, "New Paintings"

Stephen Foss is widely known for the visually rich surface finish and color that show a return to heavily worked finishes in contemporary painting. The latest body of work combines organic elements with aspects of abstraction. Foss applies paint in numerous layers; he then works the surface to allow sublayers and carefully prepared groundwork to peek through the top layer.  This results in paintings with varied colors and great depth.  Join us for the opening reception on February 25, 4-7PM.

See all of the paintings here.

Rebecca Reeve, "Marjory's World"

The photographs in "Marjory's World" were shot on location in Southern Utah and Joshua Tree, CA; in composing the photographs Reeve finds dramatic vistas and then places curtains at the edges of the frame which gives the sense of viewing the scenery through a window.  Reeve says, "In our increasingly urban existence that ever distances us from the wilderness experience, the drapes serve as visual connectors to the familiar."

Philip Buller: Ice

In this solo exhibition, Philip Buller evokes the nostalgia of winters past, of childhood memories playing in the snow and rhythmic, figures skating across the surface of the canvas. His repetitive cast of characters, carefully rendered and abstracted, are a delight to behold.
