In her solo show, Singular Obsessions, Helene Manzo visits and revisits subjects and themes that have long recurred in her paintings and prints.  She continues to be inspired by the energy of the movement of water and the profusion of plant life. Manzo transforms those observations into evocative works that that contain dialogues between clarity and mystery, order and chaos.

Alexander Purves : Watercolors 2013

October 1 – 26, 2013 ,   Reception Oct 3rd

The watercolors of Alexander Purves are made from the direct observation of nature. His approach emphasizes the immediacy of the medium and its ability to capture – with minimal means – the ephemeral quality of light. The watercolor is applied in transparent layers, the unpainted white paper often acting as a positive element in the composition. Rock formations are a recurrent subject, their aspect varying from moment to moment with the changing quality of the light.

Rose Weinstock: Additional Architectural Paintings

May 21 – June 15, 2013

Artist Reception  Thurs. May 23, 5-8 pm

Rose Weinstock’s exhibition, Additional Architectural Paintings, returns to a theme that has interested her for many years. The paintings are carefully observed depictions of quotidian subjects transformed into unique images that express the artist’s emotional reaction to the subject. Although painted in a straightforward manner, with attention to detail, there is considerable concern for formal issues.   The compositions are carefully constructed and emphasize abstract relationships. Close cropping and the geometry of shapes intensify formal power.  Color and light and shadow evoke mood.

Margaret Leveson : Reflections on Windows

March 26 – April 20, 2013

Reception: Thursday, March 28, 5 to 8 PM

Other Event: First Street Quintet will play during the reception

In the exhibition, “Reflections on Windows”, Margaret Leveson gives expression to a recurring theme in her work: the character of light. Here, windows play with light, admitting, reflecting and refracting it. They frame space – delineate it, illuminate it – providing abstract to naturalistic views into other worlds. The result is paintings that are colorful, playful and evocative. The paintings are in oils. They were executed both directly and in the studio.
