South Gallery: Burnt Offerings
Curated by Karen Karlsson

October 30 – January 4, 2015

Burnt Offerings explores the varied artistic expressions possible using encaustic paint.  An ancient medium made from beeswax, dammar resin and pigment, encaustic can produce myriad textures and forms and is known for its luminosity.  The works in this exhibit highlight some of the most exciting Western artists working in encaustic today.
Through January 4, 2015.

Spotlight Gallery: Nacht zum Tag
(Night into Day) – Kerry Kugelman

October 16 – December 21, 2014

Kerry Kugelman’s abstract paintings reveal brooding, atmospheric spaces that evoke an air of mystery and possibility. Rooted in landscape, teeming with organic forms and textures, and orchestrated by a supernal light, the paintings suggest natural forms ranging in scale from the cellular to the cosmic. Sharp tonal contrasts and clouds of ink suspended in acrylic medium create rich surfaces that draw the viewer in, and suggest a mysterious voyage.

Through December 21, 2014.

Young Artist Alcove:
Jessica Hernandez

October 30, 2014 – January 4, 2015

From the artist:
"I enjoy drawing and creating art because it gives me comfort, comfort that I need and don’t get from other stuff. It makes me feel at peace and in my own space.
One of the things I enjoy drawing most are human facial features because they hold so many emotions.      I also enjoy using nature in my work because it holds purity and natural beauty."
Through October 26, 2014
