Jane Sandelin Gallery.
NATURE'S PATTERNS AND ABSTRACTIONS by Marta Downs Marta Downs is a resident artist at Art Works. She makes her own paper and paints both landscapes and abstracts. MARTA'S show this month reflects her love of Mother Nature through use of natural patterns and abstractions. The exhibit will include twelve oil paintings. In several significant ways, the artist's impressionistic style has become more abstract than in previous works. Her exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery, East.
RECENT WORKS BY LESLIE CORBITT Centre Gallery West. "This show reflects a year of study in different mediums. I have been busy attending studio classes from 3-D Design, basket weaving, photography, charcoal and even Plein Aire Painting, constantly searching for ways to express my creativity. I have had the opportunity to study with some terrific instructors and participate in some new events that prove it's never to late to learn new things or see things in a different light. Take the time to walk through the gallery and hopefully you will enjoy the view as much as I enjoyed creating these works."
EYES OF THE FOREST by Sheila Holland
Sheila’s award winning artwork is in corporate collections and local galleries. Her paintings will be on display in the Corner Gallery.
ARCHIPELAGIC ENCOUNTERS: THE RED CINDER SERIES by Geraldine Kiefer
Skylight Gallery. "The Red Cinder Series is the continuation of Geraldine Kiefer's graphic explorations into the imaginative and cultic richness of the Hawaiian Islands. Created under the auspices of the Red Cinder creative arts colony on the Big Island and utilizing found objects as well as coffee- and tea-stained papers, these drawings explore regions floating between the known and the unknown, exploration and discovery, expeditionary clarity and obscurity, control and fear. Most of the works were drawn freehand from models culled from Hawaiian exploratory expeditions from the late 18th century through the early 19th century. A detailed map of the Big Island initiates the exhibition; an imaginary exploration by means of panoramic island elevations centers it."
