Warner Friedman will contribute some very unique small works of wood grains.

There are several impressive drawings in the exhibit, as well. Hideyo Okamura and Karin Schaefer have created highly detailed beautiful ink drawings, while JoAnne Carson and Geoff Young bring us surreal colored pencil drawings that are delightful to look at. Joe Neill’s white ink drawing on black paper is quite dramatic and is a great example of his open structural style.

Summertime – June 29th – August 10th, 2019

Each of the artists participating in this exhibit have their own interpretation of summertime, and it is these diverse insights that make this show so unique. Janet Rickus, Joan Griswold and Huguette Martel bring us new romantic realism paintings of summer fruit, outdoor greenery, and animals. Katia Santibanez, Jean Claude Goldberg and Geoff Young bring vibrant summer colors to each of their individual individual styles. Santibanez with her magnificent prints, Goldberg with his larger than life tropical paintings and Young with his geometrical pencil drawings. Barbara Takenaga, Sarah Walker, and Karin Schaefer bring us an abstract view of the summer months with colors that are bold and exciting. Sandy Litchfield, Linda Pochesci, Marjorie Reid and Maggie Mailer bring contemporary summer landscapes and still lifes to the exhibit; Litchfield dazzles us with “Rose Tinted Summer”, Marjorie Reid and Maggie Mailer cover canvases with bursts of color. Lastly, Linda Pochesci paints beautiful seascapes. Warner Friedman and Michael Zelehoski show off their shaped works; Friedman’s painting, titled Summertime, brings us to a Wisconsin lake, while Zelehoski’s work uses water and is made from wood from hurricane Irene. Nadine Robbins’ Runnin on Dunkin is a portrait of a women enjoying a vice and we also have one of her unique oyster paintings, while David Ricci’s photographs bring us back to our childhood summers with an amusement park and water rides. And, of course, Sandra Byers’ porcelain pieces are delicate, simple, elegant, and unique. They remind us of seashells on the beaches of Sanibel island.

The “X” Factor: Works by XIV Women Artists – May 4th – June 22nd, 2019

The works cover a wide visual spectrum from the hyperrealist paintings of Jessica Hess and Nadine Robbins to the deeply personal non-objective visions of Barbara Takenaga and Katia Santibanez. Sandra Byers and Sally Curcio bring exquisite sensibilities to three dimensional pieces in porcelain and sculpture. Joan Griswold and Linda Pochesci’s paintings are preoccupied with light and its effects on the surfaces and planes of the architectural environments we live in. Janet Rickus showers love and affection on her still life paintings, while Carrie Crane and Sandy Litchfield offer us new conceptual ways of thinking about landscapes. Maggie Mailer produces landscapes that shift from the abstract to the narrative, and Majory Reid’s innovative abstract paintings show how color can dominate. Sandy Winters just back from a retrospective at the DeLand Museum, once again beguiles us with her expressive draftsmanship.

As magnificent as each artist’s work in the “X” Factor exhibit is, it is the combined effect of the different styles and mediums that makes this show unique.
