OK, OK by Kevin Sabo

OK OK is a collection of gestural figures that twist their way into the perimeter of the canvas. Sabo is insistent on keeping their bodies and limbs squished inside the borders of the painting, which is a challenge to engineer new proportions of the body.


Sabo says, "Thematically, I dance with the idea of domestic spaces. My home consumes me with the maintenance I believe it deserves. My plants need watered, my cat needs her wet food in the morning, my kitchen begs to be used and my partner needs to be loved. At 26, I understand the concept of a happy homebody. I have created a safe haven inside my own walls, which makes me certain that my experiences outside of art-making are the reason why my figures never want to break the border of their canvas. The exhibit will be in the Jane Sandelin Gallery.

People and Places by Robert Wynne

Robert Wynne’s paintings range from abstract to figures, nature to mechanics. They are an expression of the artist’s travels, love of nature and nature’s creatures. This exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery, West

 



Experiencing Nature by Mark Best

Mark Best grew up in Waynesboro, Virginia and spent many hours rafting the South River, building tree forts in the woods, and hiking in the mountains. In fact, he felt more at home in the outdoors than inside. In nature he found a feeling of peace and wonder rarely experience elsewhere. In his photographs he hopes you will experience the same sense of peace and wonder that he does. The exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery, East.



Superman? by Steve Applegate

Steve Applegate created a series of ten assemblages to explore the following truths about Superman. Is Superman our struggle between spirituality vs. self-will? Is Superman the magic bullet of society?  Is Superman a societal enabler, solving social ills with one painless swoop, allowing us to avoid personal responsibility? Is Superman ironically an anti-hero?  Is Superman actually a stubborn, clueless man who awaits the "House of Mirrors" as Don Quixote did?  Finally, will Superman on Judgement Day have to answer to a power greater than himself? The exhibit will be in the Corner Gallery.


 

 

 

Hope and Struggle by Crystal George

Crystal George is fascinated with the human face and form and how it can be the physical expression of intangible emotion. She uses mixed media-acrylic, photography and ink to express ideas about humanity and about our human experience. This collection is realistic surrealism. The work expresses the battle between hope and despair and seeks to find beauty in the forgotten. A mini collection within the collection is a four-part work based on the statement of President Trump that there are “shithole countries”. The four-part series focuses on the hidden treasure that the people of those countries are and is a contrast and a rebuke to the idea that any person or nation is a throw away. The exhibit will be in the Skylight Gallery.
