Spotlight Gallery: What's in a Name
Rick Caughman

February 19 – April 5, 2015

From the artist:
"In much of my work, I leave it up to the observer to take some ownership. I feel that placing a carefully thought out title on the work helps “launch” what the scene or narrative is about. I try not to be, too specific, with the hopes that the observer’s imagination will take hold, therefore, completing the visual experience. Most of the work exhibited will be character illustrations and imaginative landscapes."
Through April 5, 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."
