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

On Display Through December 8, 2016

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.

December 13, 2016 – January 26, 2017

Reception: Friday, January 6, 5 - 7pm

Alchemy: The big bang, inner landscapes, chemistry, alchemy, heaven and earth. These are all the qualities that sustain Kristin's interest in working with metallic surfaces and mild acids on canvas. Humidity, heat, sun and shade, layers of metal suspended in paint, reacting with past applications - conspire to create a state of wonder. "They’re impossible to re-create. Impossible to ‘fix'. It would be like trying to contain fog."

Stitches: Kristin loves operating machines. Sewing machines, typewriters, cars. It goes way back to her grandma teaching her to sew on her treadle machine, learning to type in high school, loving to drive her VW bug. These pieces are like driving with a sewing machine down the winding roads of her mind and emotions. Sometimes the road is smooth, sometimes rough. Sometimes there’s a dead end and a sense of frustration. It’s process sewing. She has little preconceived idea of how it will go, and she is delighted to witness its unfolding. "It’s a window into what makes me tick."
