For the Birds (Aug)

For the Birds
August 3 – 31, 2015


Birds exist everywhere, and while adored by some, they are feared or totally ignored by others. Birds have been used as symbols for love (love birds), peace (dove), freedom (bald eagle), and rebirth (the mythical phoenix). Poems and songs have been written about them, and each state claims one as it’s state bird.

For this show, artists are invited to submit work that depicts birds in any medium.
Entry deadline: July 20
Exhibit: August 3 – 31
Reception: August 9, 2 pm – 4 pm

Blue, 2015 (June)

Blue
Exhibit June 1-30, 2015
Reception Sunday, June 7, 2-4

Our inspiration for the June show just came to us right out of the blue – literally. This month we’re turning the gallery every shade of blue. We’ll show artwork depicting sky, sea, ice and snow… hydrangea and hyacinth… lapis and turquoise… yes, even your grandmother’s blue willow dishes. Anything and everything blue qualifies, even if it’s only metaphorically blue. We won’t leave out that melancholy feeling or that uniquely American music either.

Driven to Abstraction (Sept)

Driven to Abstraction
September 1 – 30, 2014
Reception September 20, 2-4pm

During the late nineteenth century art took a turn away from realism. From the first abstractions of color and light, to the changing focus on form, line, plane, and subject, abstract art came into it’s own during the twentieth century. Whether a distorted objective creation or a pure study of shape, space, line, and color in a non-objective work, abstract art is well loved in the twenty first century.

Black & White (Aug)

Black & White
August 4 – 29, 2014
Reception August 10, 2-4pm

So many of the things we love are black and white: books, newspapers, Ansel Adams photographs, old vinyl records, film noir and other old movies, pandas, zebras, panthers, penguins, Pegasus Theater, snow shining under moonlight, and people, to name a few. Is the truth always black or white? For this show, artists are invited to submit work in any medium that is black or white, a combination of black and white, or addresses the concept of black and white in some way.

RED! – a color of many shades associated with a myriad of conflicting emotions. Red is the color of love and hate, passion and anger, joy and danger, celebration and war. Red is also associated with deception (“to see a red flag”); courage (“the red badge of courage”); bureaucracy (“red tape”); wrongdoing (“with blood on one’s hands”); embarrassment (“to be red faced”); fun (“paint the town red”); and more. The primary interest in the piece should be some aspect of red.
