Grace

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.
