Running from Friday, May 22 through Saturday, July 18, the Spring show will feature the work of Rigo Peralta, Ana Hamilton, Sean Turrell, Michelle Neifert, Lauren Beauchner, Janet Bishop, Evelyn Deutsch, Andy Vasquez, and Valerie Young. The exhibit will also include furniture by Mark Southard and Chelsea Southard that shapes Bethlehem Steel foundry artifacts into fine furniture, and “time machines” by Doug Kozo.
Inspired by the Polymita shell and her Cuban background, Ana creates wonderful works of portraiture infused with color.
Chelsea Southard's work is greatly influenced by the organic process of degradation/transformation that captures the passing of time and the transfer of memories.
Evelyn, an avid bead collector, turned her collection into beautiful works of jewelry.
Janet's artwork spans seven decades, inspired by her diverse background and travel experiences.
Inspired by color and the qualities of paint, Michelle layers multiple experimental processes in her artwork to create a sense of translucent color and luminosity.
Using an organic method, Rigo skips preliminary sketches and begins his artwork on a bare canvas, driven only by the urge to paint.
Inspired by her family and friends, Valerie takes ordinary objects and creates extraordinary lamps.
Mark Southard is captivated by the human Spirit shared across cultures and driven to understand the complex political-economic dynamics which frame exchange relationships.
