The theme of the 2010 WCA National conference which is being held in Chicago at the same time as this exhibit is “From the Center.”  In response, this show is called “Off Center”, which could mean: out of focus, quirky, or off the beaten path.  The significance of the theme “Off Center” will be open to individual artist”s interpretation.

“Conversations”  Paintings and Drawings

Opening Reception:  Friday, February 5, from 6-9pm
2nd Reception honoring WCA: Friday Feb 12  6-9pm

Rine boyer’s most recent series, “Conversations” eschews facial expressions and focuses exclusively on body language.  Her emphasis on color and the contrast between the icons that are drawn on the subjects invites the viewer to examine human interaction from a less direct angle by showing those small involuntary actions which often say more than we intend.
