Margy Nelson has created prints and photographs to offer a bit of a different perspective on the everyday world... some real/serious, some tongue-in-cheek... which is which?

Stephan Phillips' still life paintings demonstrate a mysterious physical world in which objects, space and light take on meta-physical dimensions.

Margaret Reed’s colorful chalk pastel drawings invite the viewers in to a world inhabited by saints and martyrs. Recurring imagery fosters the sense of an overarching narrative; a journey in progress with no end in sight.

Roots - Real and Remembered: Solo exhibition from Eva Capobianco

Roots – Real and Remembered,” a show of sculpture and cross-stitched work by Eva M. Capobianco, will be held at State of the Art Gallery during May. The “real” roots in her work, Ms. Capobianco says, have been found on trails and roads near her home and beyond and they are combined with re-used bits of old furniture, glass and other objects collected over time. This series is a continuation of themes she has explored for years.

The “remembered” roots are memories from her childhood and youth, a new autobiographical series, stitched into both words and images. Not every piece in the show contains a root, she says, but this is the dominant connecting element in both series.

Inner Worlds/Outer Worlds - Two Views

Painting and sculpture by Jane Dennis and Diana Ozolins.

Dennis’ metaphorical paintings and sculptures explore the psychological and bureaucratic structures that people create to order or disorder their world, while Ozolins’ realistic paintings celebrate the beauty and wonder of our natural world.
