1340 4th st   Mc Rosky Mattress Company    music
reception: Watercolor paintings by Brian Elder
I like detail, I like odd colors, I like Andrew Wyeth, I like Mark Rothko, I like going around to places where I’m the only one not wearing camo, or packing. I really like dead of winter places, too, but it’s usually too cold to paint. About fifteen years ago I met a man who saw the currents of universal love flowing through everything, and could show these to you, if you were interested in looking. I was interested in looking, and so he showed me. And now I humbly present these reflections of what I saw.
music: Mundo Rio plays the sounds of Brazilian Bossa Nova and Samba, as well as a variety of other South American and Afro-Cuban music.

1337 4th st  Art Works Downtown  strawberry-icon WineSymbol  
reception: Veer  info 
Curators Theodora Mauro and Tracy Wheeler focus on the mystery of how nothing becomes something in the art making process, balancing in part on an artist’s ability to veer from an original concept towards what’s calling to be made. Windy Chien, Sydney Cohen, Randy Colosky, Amos Goldbaum, Mary Anne Kluth, and Patricia Lyons Stroud passionately embrace the vertigo of not knowing in order to make work that teaches them, piece by piece, about what they’re after. Taken together, the work in Veer offers evidence that allowing oneself to move abruptly away from preconceived goals and expectations can lead to glorious new directions.

Underground Gallery (AWD)  info 
reception: Curiously Grim
digital collage and mixed media installation by Eric Kelly with Le Mysterium

Eric Kelly transforms images from the earliest days of photography into surreal dreamscapes and assemblages, using digital processing and layers of metal leaf and resin to animate the past with an eerie new life. In collaboration with Rodney Griffin of Le Mysterium Collective, he reimagines Art Works Downtown’s Underground Gallery as an alternate universe Victorian salon, to showcase his curiously grim (and at times absurdly humorous) creations.

Founders' Gallery (AWD)   info 
reception: The Bigger Picture, Heather McFarlin
For Heather McFarlin, abstract painting and the creative process go hand in hand with intuition and insight, producing a greater understanding of her life and the world at large. Often times the ‘bigger picture’ becomes clear as the painting progresses, and understanding is gleaned in areas such as personal healing, or in response to a specific subject or topic. Symbols, images, gestural marks, color, and even the composition that emerges are all part of this process that help inform her.

1325 Donors'Gallery info 
reception: Traces, Lucie Dupuis and Swann Freslon
Swann is a painter, Lucie is a ceramic artist. The two are friends and decided to show their art as the extension of their lives.
Everything we experience, see, feel, leaves a trace on us like the stroke of a brush on canvas, or the kiss of the flames on pit-fired porcelain. From the shores of Normandy for one, to an african childhood for the other, both artists create pieces influenced by their own histories and surroundings. Through art, theses traces deep within, images, emotions and colors can find their way out, raw and intense for Swann, deceptively quiet for Lucie, complementing one another. Swann and Lucie want to propose a dialogue between paintings and ceramics, and let them resonate with each other, and with the viewer’s inner traces of their own lives.

Portraits in oils and pencil by Rouzbeh Delijani
