Spotlight Gallery: Breathing
Stevie Love

April 9 – May 24, 2015

From the artist:
"I choose acrylic paint for its inherent properties, thick or thin, opaque or transparent, malleable, pourable, squeezable. I get the most pleasure from color; form is secondary although important because it is the form that brings colors into juxtaposition with one another so the colors can sing. Color = spirit. Form = physicality. Color feeds my need for the nonverbal, while form feeds my need to be grounded. When they play well together, something new is born, and this story, this metaphysical drama, is my drug of choice. Some of the paint hanging things conjure up the absence of a person or personality that could have been connected to the artwork before its life hanging on the wall."
Through May 24, 2015.




Young Artist Alcove:
Leslie Montalvo

April 2 - April 26, 2015

Artist Statement:
"People and animals have always caught my attention because of their unique characteristics and personalities.  Facial expressions and body language are fun areas to explore as I create my work.  The messages in my work are not always obvious because I like the viewer to explore and find it themselves.  I have enjoyed creating my favorite subjects 2-dimensionaly with watercolor and colored pencil, as well as experimenting with 3-dimensional work in ceramics this year."
