String Theory: Mixed Media Work by Sharon Kagan

March 21, 2019 - July 7, 2019
Multi-disciplinary artist Sharon Kagan’s artwork reflects the profoundly felt character of her life that is interwoven with the history of the 20th century’s darker moments—but is transcended by a brighter wisdom that prevailed. Her recent drawings and paintings on canvas have introduced color and pattern into the enlarged images, to achieve the artist’s intention: “I am working to make the eyes dance.”

Michel Desroches: Between The Lines

March 15, 2019 - July 7, 2019
Desroches’ desire to portray intense emotions originated largely from his work as an Art Therapist with people suffering from mental and emotional illness. In their faces, he often saw a rapid cacophony of intense naked emotion — both simple and complex – as well as the simultaneous dichotomy of suffering and strength exposed in their countenances.

Boundless Visions

Art-O-Mat

Ongoing
Art-o-mat machines are retired cigarette vending machines that have been converted to sell art. And just what exactly do you get from an Art-o-mat? The experience of pulling the knob alone is quite a thrill, but you also walk away with an original work of art. What an easy way to become an art collector!
