South Gallery: rebirth of dialects
Curated by Cindy Rinne

January 22 – March 22, 2015

Cindy Rinne curates an exhibition of mixed-media fiber art using various materials including: found objects, fragments of cloth, yarn, and sticks to construct sculptural forms or art quilts. The artists in this exhibition, Sharon Algozer, Susan Feldman, Sumi Foley, Laura Larson and Cindy Rinne, create conceptual and narrative objects by building form with their hands using stitch as language. Through a visual vocabulary, both gritty and fluid, the artists reinvent myth, identity, absence, and place.
Through March 22, 2015.


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:
Adriana Ramos

February 19 – March 29, 2015

From the artist:
"Art has always been an easy way to forget about all the chaos for a moment. It makes me feel serene and calm, in my own world, away from all the distractions. The feeling that overwhelms me when I create art is indescribable. I enjoy art because it makes me feel complete."
Through March 29, 2015.
