The Triumph of Depravity

The Triumph of Depravity

“As an artist, I try to focus on having no overarching mission whatsoever. I am certainly not against one, and the artists I admire most always have a mission of some kind. However, I have found that for me to get anything done, I need to focus on what is immediately at hand for what it is rather than what I would like it to be.”

José Pedreanez | Epiphany Eternal
Acrylic paintings
June 22–July 28

De la Serie, Totems #1 (of the Totems Series #1)

De la Serie, Totems #1 (of the Totems Series #1)

“The reciprocal equilibrium between what is thought and which is observed…creates…a body of technique fused with a venerable admiration of all that is living. …beyond that which is human, beyond the merely experiential: It is focused on the will of the eternal.”

Lisa Tarkett Reed | Inner/Outer Space
Mixed-media drawing & sculpture
July 6–September 1

Shooter by Lisa Tarkett Reed

Shooter by Lisa Tarkett Reed

The artist explores ideas about sacred space, light, and connection in her nature-inspired drawings, paintings, and sculptures. She cultivates observance and practice as she creates collaged surfaces to which she responds with drawings in India ink and acrylic paint.

Tara Will | The Radiant Pastel
Plein air pastels
July 6–September 1

Summer Days by Tara Will

Summer Days by Tara Will

“There is something magical about the quality of natural light. I love to see how it has such influence and power over its subject. Often making the mundane beautiful; the dismissed present. This body of work reflects my travels outdoors, capturing my favorite subject: light.”

Karen Commings | Last Call
Photography
July 6–September 1

Last Call by Karen Commings

Last Call by Karen Commings

“As the night wears on, the glare from the concession stands creates a strong contrast to the enveloping darkness. People partially revealed or silhouetted against the lighted windows and shapes, shadows, and patterns of the concession stands contribute to the edginess of the images, making what in the daytime might be a festive event often seem somber and surreal.”

Beckie Mirsch Laughlin | Whispers of Intuition
Acrylic paintings
September 7–29

Enron by Beckie Mirsch Laughlin

Enton by Beckie Mirsch Laughlin

“I listen to the quiet voice of my intuition to tell me which color to use and where on the canvas to apply it. The painting then begins to have a life of its own. I continue to listen to the whispers until the painting is complete. Because I paint from my interior realm, spiritual concerns that cannot be named or elaborated on enter into the painting’s expression.”

Lisa DeLoria Weinblatt | School Lunch
Paintings
September 7–29

School Lunch 1 by Lisa DeLoria Weinblatt

School Lunch 1 by Lisa DeLoria Weinblatt

“School Lunch . . . underlines perceptions that affirm cultural identity, brings together ideas espousing contemporary concerns, and encourages a belief in the quality of human spirit.”

Lorena Molina | How Blue
Video installations/photography
September 7–October 27

Entre Palmas by Lorena Molina

Entre Palmas by Lorena Molina

“How Blue looks into how the textile history in El Salvador is complex and embedded with the genocides and persecution of indigenous peoples. It is tied to the 12-year civil war, and the ways that globalization and capitalism affect communities and traditional practices.”

Virginia Sperry | Impermanence
Sculpture and photography
September 7–October 27

Very Tired by Virginia Sperry

Very Tired by Virginia Sperry

“I am intrigued with the visual signs of aging and impermanence, both in myself and in the world around me. Rust has become my muse and my medium.”

Lyle Kleinhans | Look Me in the Eye
Oil paintings
September 7–October 27

Chicago Man by Lyle Kleinhans

Chicago Man by Lyle Kleinhans

“Philosopher Immanuel Kant said that we cannot really see reality: what we see goes through the filter of the human mind. I like to think that my paintings are another picture of reality viewed through the skewed—or jaundiced—filter of my mind and in such a way as to possibly deepen the mystery of life, or maybe cast light on the existence of life.”
