20/20 Hindsight by Titus Marques - Marques works primarily with a mixture of acrylic and found materials. These found materials serve as a visual diary as they come from personal experiences, activities, and acquaintances. He approaches his pieces with very little expectations but only a mental framework of what needs to be seen or included. The working process is very primal and spontaneous as a relationship develops between the artist and the image."

Featuring 6 new art shows, including:

 

Recent Work by Mary Storms - Mary is intrigued and inspired by the natural environment. Her intent is to provide the viewer with a sense of the symbiotic relationship between primeval elements - stone, soil, water and sky - and the life these elements nurture.

Mary’s canvases are noted for their rich textures and intense color, from bold and vibrant to quiet and subdued. In addition to acrylic paint, she uses sculpting paste, along with layers of torn or cut handmade paper and recycled magazine paper. To add additional depth, portions of some layers are scrubbed or scraped off. Paint is applied with brushes, palette knives and her hands.

Deshia Williams

August 24th, 2018: 4th Friday Art Shows

Featuring 6 new art shows, including:

 

Recent Works by Deshia Williams "My brain interprets the world in high contrast. I am especially aware of this because my visual perception was altered when I suffered a head injury in 2010. This constantly observable change brought me to a novel view of the visual world and art making. It was near this time that I began sketching and logging art ideas. My work involves the application of paint to transparent surfaces, which are then transformed by the addition of variable lights. I use plexiglass, acrylics and LED lighting and presentation and mounting experimentation. Looking at artists such as Dale Chihuly, James Turrell and Robert Irwin keeps me interested in moving toward more investigations into the innumerable combinations that can be seen when blending light and transparent materials." Jane Sandelin Gallery.

Eric Nye

September 28th, 2018: 4th Friday Art Shows

Featuring 6 new art shows, including:

Interactions by Eric Nye - Nye likes people to experience my creations in an active interactive process rather than as passive observers. The viewer has not only the opportunity to discover and explore but also the ability to compose and create using their own intuition. Each piece has the possibility of being rearranged into many millions of compositions so the chances of two viewers setting the same combination are staggeringly low. In essence a new creation is made with every new viewer. He seeks to engage the playful nature that all people possess.


In his latest body of work titled "Metamorphosis" he turns the subject to more intimate and vulnerable mixed media portraits of people and explores their transformations into different iterations of themselves, into animals, the elements, and other people and can be rearranged into countless compositions by the viewer.

Ola Balogun

November 23rd, 2018: 4th Friday Art Shows

Featuring 6 new art shows, including:

Ola Balogun Recent Works- Ola Balogun is a graduate of Auchi Polytechnic in Nigeria. He engages in issues ranging from political satires to social commentary. "My work presents dramatic enactments of private conversations between individuals concealed in silhouettes. [They reflect the] ephemeral moments in the busy and boisterous metropolis where I've worked and lived. My fascination with these disconnected and culminating experiences inform my vision in these paintings. Beyond their abstract nature, I've incorporated luminous colors, words, and intricate motifs that play with exotic plants and designs found in native prints." This exhibit will be in the Jane Sandelin Gallery.
