Monocracy by Michael Douglas Jones

Monocracy by Michael Douglas Jones

Jones uses carefully selected objects and materials to assemble visual memoirs that attract the viewer’s attention, and then draw them inwards. A veteran, Jones refers to his narrative writings and training in the U.S. Air Force when creating these metaphorical pages of positive memories and values, and the lessons and loves that we hold dear. Read a short piece written by the artist for the exhibition.

Mary Sciré | Bits and Pieces

Mixed-media paintings
November 2–December 29

Caged by Mary Sciré

Caged by Mary Sciré

In an effort to reduce and reuse, Sciré repurposes the various materials found within her studio to create a distinctive series of abstractions. From scrap paper to scrapped paintings, Sciré strives to incorporate every bit and piece onto the canvas.
