Cheryl Betz: On the Periphery

During the month of September, Cheryl Betz will be exhibiting mixed-media paintings from five different series begun during the pandemic. Betz’s work reflects her interest in the shifting, impermanent nature of form, perception, and thought, and in all that lies on the periphery of our understanding. The opening reception will be September 3rd, 4-7pm; the show runs through September 26. The gallery is open Friday 4-7 and Saturday and Sunday 11-5.

Sam Thurston: Paintings, Pots, and Sculpture

July 2- August 1, 2021, Opening Reception July 2, 4-7pm.Artist Talk Thursday, July 22, 7pm – see the recording here with passcode iY5+%T9C Sam Thurston’s work communicates an interest in contrasted flatness and architectural space. Using various media (oil paint, wood, ceramics) and working in both two and three dimensions, he explores many traditional themes and motifs such as the figure, landscape, and still life. He often paints directly from life and sometimes works from his imagination.  Some scenes reference poems, creating a narrative sensibility without revealing the whole story to the viewer. Thurston is interested in architectural space, and the tension between the flatness of a drawing and the idea of volume comes through in his pottery – much of which uses blocky, angular forms glazed with drawn and painted images. By contrast, his sculptural figures use mass and dimensionality to full effect. In playing between flatness and dimensionality, Thurston’s expressions almost seem to live in an earlier era, hearkening to iconic work of the 1920s and 30s. The opening reception will be July 2, 4-7pm, and the show runs through August 1st, with an artist talk July 22; gallery hours are now Fridays 4-7 and Saturdays and Sundays 11-5.
