​Current Exhibit

Twirling Present, Colorful Future -- Jill Centino
Variegated -- Melissa Schleuger
June 16 - August 31, 2018

Jill Centino's paintings are some form of life's various personal quotations. In this series, she sees each painting as a kind of codex.


Melissa Schleuger begins her paintings without preconceived influence and continues by following the lead of brush strokes and colorful acrylics. Her mark-making is influenced by her studies in Chinese abstract and interest in architectural photography. Colors are selected at random.

Join the artists for a First Friday reception from 6:30-8 p.m. on Friday, July 6 with live music by the Reid Riddiough Trio.

​Recent Exhibits​"Before Time 9" painting by Shelley Whiting

Before Time -- Shelley Whiting
June 2 - July 14, 2017

In this series of paintings, artist Shelley Whiting explores the concept of preexistence.  Her hope is to make viewers wonder, “What was life like before time existed?”

 

carolina-escobar-IMG_3354__lowres-200px.jpgMapping -- Carolina Escobar
April 21 - May 26, 2017

Carolina Escobar's images are inspired by years of living in the desert infused with many years spent in the tropics.  Her drawings are an exploration of color, each beginning with a familiar desert plant morphed into tropical plants, flowers, architectural structures—some even take on a human quality.
