Rebirth,” watercolor, mixed-media, sculpture

Opening Reception:  Friday, May 28, 6-9pm 
CLOSING RECEPTION: SATURDAY, JUNE 19, 3-6PM 

“Rebirth” is a two-person exhibit of works by painter Anne Farley Gaines and sculptor Geoffrey Novelli. Most of the works involve natural imagery and contain covert metaphors for different emotional states. Gaines’ icefall and waterfall series in watercolor and mixed-media are exemplary of this. Novelli’s recent copper works capture some of the oriental whimsy found in personal fantasy. Recently married, Gaines and Novelli have experienced unity in collaborating on some of their three-dimensional works, most recently an icefall created in wax and cast in iron. Their goal is to convey a positive and joyful view of life through their use of exuberant imagery.

 “Past and Present:   A Retrospective, mixed media  Curated by Greg Knight

 Opening Reception:  Friday, May 28, 6-9pm 
CLOSING RECEPTION: SATURDAY, JUNE 19, 3-6PM

Charlotte Segal says that she has never been one to connect to particular art “isms” as she follows her own paths. Though she does respect the work of Picasso, O’Keefe and Pollock, she paints intuitively and finds shapes and themes that tell personal stories.  She often concentrates on the feminine mystique as well as forms borrowed from nature.  Since travel has been a part of her experiences, several paintings in this mini retrospective document other cultures that she has visited.  She says that every mark and shape placed on canvas she views as a kind of self portrait in that while making art, she is totally absorbed by the process. She has tried in the selection of works for this show to choose those that best tell how her career in art developed over the years.  Choosing the work has been an interesting challenge and very introspective.
