KALEIDOSCOPE Designers’ Reception June 24th 5-7:30pm.

Are you an Interior Designer, Decorator, Architect or Realtor? As part of our Kaleidocope exhibition in the North Gallery, we’re introducing a new collection of cutting-edge digital evolutions developed by Marko Shuhan that push his oil paintings to explore metaphor, illusion, through multi-media manipulation. Pushing perception to its limits, we present mixed media collages by Maya Farber that evoke the question of what is preconceived and what is created in a still life dialogue. “Painting still life in collages is like working with a jigsaw puzzle, fitting the pieces which must combine, including light and shadow, size and perspective, color and subject, into a seamless blend of painted and cut-out images and objects, ultimately achieving a photorealist work.” Abstract glassworks by Glenn Abel allow us to see the world through his vision of fused and cast glass, manipulated and expressed through color. Introducing Color Field Sculpture® by Shelley Parriott, transparent layers play in changing light as miniature interior wall pieces or large-scale installations. View the latest large sculptural addition to the gallery called ‘Transitions’ on the West Lawn. Exhibit in North Gallery extended through June 26h, 2017.

VIEWPOINTS: ILONA SOCHYNSKY

These works provide glimpses into a well-developed sensibility, articulating different aspects of Sochynsky’s art growth and essence. A variety of pieces that are informed by Pop, Cubism, Photorealism, Surrealism… all serving as a point of departure leading to a distinctive treatment of shape, plane, use of bold color and fragmented imagery. The exhibit includes excerpts from a variety of Sochynsky’s series (Capriccio, Fetish, Fragments) including her latest, Fugues. “Using the circular form I attempt to interweave fragments and textures into a contrapuntal composition, whose basic structure consists of themes stated successively in different voices. With these paintings I aspire to create a state of harmony and to provoke a dreamlike state of altered consciousness in the viewer.”
