Doug Lawler: Light and Color

Showing: November 3 – 30

Reception: Saturday, November 10, 5-7pm

The ongoing theme of Doug’s current work is light and color. He explores light as the driving force in our understating of the universe and the laws of physics. Complex color is the total effect of the environmental influences on the objects we perceive. The color we see is really a combination of surfaces, reflections, and shadows. Light emerges from objects, light also penetrates objects. Color then becomes the essence of things, rather than the description of things. He tries to capture an image where color and light combine to form a moment of grace.

AND YOU WERE THERE TOO

by Alison Moncrieff

Showing: October 4 – November 15

An ongoing meditation on loss, transformation, and the fluidity of identity, my empty-dress paintings are witness to that which is mourned, transmuting, or being born. Historically, clothing has communicated social information such as sexual availability or fertility, class, religious status. Garments communicate the restrictions and the freedoms of a culture, narrowly defining the people who wear them. What would the world would be like if the message a garment carried were under the purview of its wearer and not that of their society? Empty clothing is emblematic to me of how much we do not know about other people, how much is theirs to define. Inside every garment can be a personal sovereignty that holds out hope for freedom, spiritual opening, and change.
