Thea Evensen, Lynnie Rabinowitsh & Kathy Farrell: Three Artists/Three Styles

October 25 – December 8, 2016

Reception: Thursday, October 27, 5 - 7pm

Thea Evensen uses collage, calligraphy and encaustic to make colorful, intimate pieces that fuse images and words. As the surface is built up and then scraped away, shapes and textures reveal interesting surprises. Lynnie Rabinowitsh paints landscapes and cityscapes in oil, and sometimes adds collage for an additional ‘sparkle’. There is often the addition of an architectural form in the landscape to contrast with the organic shapes in nature. Kathy Farrell discovers shards and treasures in what others toss away.  She forms broken pieces into functional and abstract mosaic art. Kathy is influenced by Hundertwasser, Hoffman and Gaudi.

Kristin Meuser: Alchemy

December 13, 2016 – January 26, 2017

Reception: Friday, January 6, 5 - 7pm

Kristin Meuser’s work finds inspiration in the dialog between herself and the materials. When Kristin creates the metallic paintings on canvas, she has no idea how the mild acids will react with the metal or with each other. Layers of applied metal surfaces reveal an alchemic reaction that surprises, delights and inspires the next stage of the painting. Likewise her machine sewn collage pieces stem from stream of consciousness, where she finds that she is one of the participants in a dance between the sewing machine itself, the lines and patterns that emerge, and the applied paper and detritus.
