Black-Hawk-webWORKS IN STONE
Featured sculptures by Mike McCarthy
August 30-October 21, 2015
Opening Reception August 30, 2-4 p.m.

Creating art has always been a necessity to me. It provides an avenue to bring my ideas to life. In working through the creative process, the vision of those ideas takes form and develops into a solid structure. The development of that structure and the melding of the idea into a completed work is one of the most fulfilling activities in my life. While my subject matter varies,it is all influenced by artists such as Michelangelo Bernini and Da Vinci. Regardless of if I am working figuratively or doing an abstract work, their command of line and form inspire me to strive to achieve their level of competence. The influence those masters have had on me has also effected my material of choice. While I do some work in wood and steel, my preferred material is stone. I like the permanence and the weight that stone gives to my work. As so many of the great works were done in stone, it gives me a connection to those great works.

Long, Long Journey to the Sea:An exhibition of gold-toned Albumen Prints
September 25-November 8, 2015
OPENING RECEPTION October 11, 2-4 P.M.

Photographer, philosopher, physician, and poet, Tim creates images to transform the “reality” seen through the camera lens into expressions of the “oneness” and wonder found in Buddhist/Taoist philosophy. Tim largely excludes human !gures, although humanity is alluded to through the cultural icons and remnants shown. Rather than photograph evanescent contemporary culture, he prefer that his images focus on cultural remnants left behind or on natural phenomena as a metaphorical substitute. These images are not, however, about landscape as a document of reality, but about landscape populated by a forest of symbols which are conduits of supplemental meaning. Some examples of the symbolic meaning of images include water, for the unconscious; rivers, for the passage of time; ruins, for the past; light, for knowledge and purity; and darkness, for the hidden and the unknown.


This, That and the other
Works by Martin rollins
October 11-November 17, 2015
Opening RECEPTION on October 11, 2-4 p.m.

This, That and the Other, as Martin Rollins describes it, is a retrospective, of sorts. The exhibition is not the usual chronological series of works showcasing the thematic or formal development of an artist. Instead, these drawings and paintings are Rollins’ personal selections of explorations in form, history and artistic reflection he has dabbled with over time.

Also, this exhibit is not the light-filled urban scenes and verdant glowing landscapes many of us are accustomed to seeing in Martin Rollins artwork. Instead, they are tightly-spaced still-lifes, some loosely executed, others finely finished. They range from the early 1980s to today. These are works that he has not often shared or exhibited with the public.
