KRISTEN THROOP: A COURSE NEITHER BITTER NOR FALSE

Exhibit: May 27 – July 16, 2015

Reception: Thursday, May 28, 5-7pm

Throop frequently uses dreams and fairy tales as the starting point for her works which explore human psychology. Growing up near New York City she was influenced at an early age by the works of Julian Schnabel and the Abstract Expressionists. Throop’s paintings emphasize movement of brushstroke and rough surface texture. She earned a degree in art from Syracuse University where she studied with master draftsman, Jerome Witkin and has studied art at New York’s Museum of Modern Art and at Yale University. Throop has been part of the emerging arts neighborhood, SOFA, for the past five years.

 

Barbera

TYSON BARBERA: FLAT-TIN

Exhibit: May 27 – July 16, 2015

Reception: Thursday, May 28, 5-7pm

I make art because it is an outlet of feelings, color, design and recycling all at the same time. I am inspired by the natural elements in the world I am surrounded by. I love plants, animals, and modes of transportation. To me my art represents a new way to inspire people to reuse an object or to see it differently than before. What is unique about my sculptures is that all of the parts were reclaimed from dumpsters or trashcans. I have never bought metal to create a piece. For me that is the best characteristic of my sculptures. I love to watch people dissect and decipher what parts are in an art piece.

ON YOUR OWN TIME

Exhibit: July 21 – September 10, 2015

Reception: Thursday, July 23, 5-7pm


“On Your Own Time” is a group show featuring Sonoma County artists whose work will explore the concept of Time. Rather than addressing the measurement of time, artists were asked to examine perspectives on how our public and private selves overlap, shift, interact and are defined by the processes behind the duration, memory and anticipation of time. This show will explore in multi-media, the boundaries between 'past and present', between 'perceptions and recollections', between the 'real and the imagined', with a bit of 'the joyful sense of timelessness' thrown in for good measure.
