December 18, 2009 – January 04, 2010 Interior gallery 12-6 pm daily/Street level installation Regarding themes: I’m easily fascinated by the physical world, by things and their representation.

Winicjusz Lysik: DOCTOR

Winicjusz Lysik: DOCTOR

Art captures the present moment. When I complete a painting, it is no longer “mine;” it belongs to the past. I live in the present. My newest painting is always closest to me—communicating my emotions and reactions to what is happening in the world around me. I’m living in the trenches looking for the portal.

Pauline Halper

Pauline Halper

September 4 – September 17, 2009 I work in different mediums and sizes at once. Moving between these different kinds of drawing keeps my ideas fresh.

Kelly Evers Jackson: PAINTINGS

Kelly Evers Jackson: PAINTINGS

August 22 – September 3, 2009 My work is all about the little things, conglomerating into a mass that represents the meeting place between thoughts and actual events. I try to acknowledge the beauty and humor that results from the human tendency to attempt to control chaos and nature, while simultaneously venerating both. My perspective [...]


Guy Nelson: MIMICS AND MUTUALISTS

Guy Nelson: MIMICS AND MUTUALISTS

Guy Nelson is interested in mass, form, and color. He uses dichotomous materials- resins, candy, and elements of nature- with the common threads and interrelated concepts of structure, self-preservation, and survival.


Mikhail Iliatov: A ROAD TO SHURI-JO

Mikhail Iliatov: A ROAD TO SHURI-JO

July 20 – August 5, 2009 I start with memories of my dreams searching for places that I never visited and lives that I never lived.

June 4 – 28, 2009 Found objects and mixed media. “After Life” is a statement about environmental sustainability. My art reflects how nature would take over after humans no longer exists.


Fred Bendheim: BIG BANG

Fred Bendheim: BIG BANG

April 2009 I make paintings, drawings and sculpture. My recent work is the result of thirty years of exploring mind through art. Each piece’s structure is made from a line that forms a circuit of shapes, colors, gestures and feelings. Like small universes, the works contain endless differences, and yet they are essentially one.
