Sarah Jane Stoll | Dusk

Large-format oil paintings
January 4–March 1

Meditating on the Sofa by Sarah Jane Stoll

With an emphasis on figures and their place within an environment of painterly abstraction, Dusk delves into the complexities of dream realms, mythological feminine archetypes, and symbols of nature. By manipulating paint through a combination of squeegee dragging, palette knife scraping, masking, and marbling techniques, Stoll captures realism as it dissipates into a dream-like abstraction.

Tracey Ellis-Guss | An Enduring Spirit

January 4–March 1

The Beauty of Hands and Feet by Tracey Ellis-Guss

In this series of black-and-white photography, Ellis-Guss documents the physical changes experienced by a friend as she underwent chemotherapy. With photos that span a four-month period, An Enduring Spirit offers a glimpse into the inner growth of its model, and the lasting effects on those around her.

Tali Margolin | Preserving Memories

Mixed-media 2-D
January 4–March 1

Place by Tali Margolin

Preserving Memories draws from the artist’s experiences with immigration to unravel the concept of home and the process of memory-making. By reworking and layering photographs of everyday objects, familiar structures, and generic landscapes, Margolin guides the viewer to create associations within their own memories.
