“Words Matter” paintings by Carol Buchman
Opening Reception: Sunday, January 5 from 1:30–3:30pm
In the gallery January 2–February 1
We have all been hearing the phrase “Words Matter” mostly in response to an increasing lack of civility in politics and public discourse and the negative effects that can have. I have often used text in my work and began to think more about this phrase. How do words bring context and meaning to a piece of art either by being in the piece itself, or simply by the title? What are some powerful phrases, blessings and words taken from Judaism and other sources that build up rather than tear down, or that resonate deeply for me? The mixed media paintings in this show will be a mixture of new and older work with text as a conceptual element.

"Mostly Minimal" by Mary-Ellen Kelly
Opening Reception:
Thursday, February 6, from 5:30–7:30pm
In the gallery February 2–28
Having a creative eye that tends to "look up" this show will be a mix of photography prints focused on simple and minimal views, as well as complementary mixed media works that incorporate layers of plaster, acrylic paint, vintage papers and gold leafing.

Suspension and Release

Opening Reception: Thursday, March 5, from 5:30–7:30
In the gallery March 2–31
Suspension and Release. is the balance between what we hold onto and what we let go of. It is the recognition that people, things, and ideas serve a purpose, sometimes for a finite period, before they must be released. It takes intention to be able to hold onto what serves and to let go of what doesn’t. Suspension and Release. speaks to the balance of dichotomies, the midline between contradictions, and the illusion of separation.
