It’s All Wood Sean Carney

November 18 - January 14


Visit the Solley Theater Lobby Gallery to view works by Sean Carney, on view through 1/14/2017.


As a fine artist I feel the need to touch every medium. I enjoy the elements that construct the artwork and relish in the process. My recent works on wood are done using only wood stain and a Dremel. There has been an obvious progression in my works lately in regards to color and surface. Through experimentation with different types of water based stains I have been able to expand my pallet and texture by leaps and bounds. My paintings look like traditional paintings from a distance, but upon closer inspection you gain a realization that they are not traditional at all. It is that moment of contemplation that drives me to continue my growth and development.

Sculpture by Gyuri Hollosy

At a very young age, Gyuri Hollosy started his career in sculptured art and in the 1960’s, attended the Cleveland Institute of Art.

Riverside Silos/Shaping Spaces

The Arts Council of Princeton presents Riverside Silos/Shaping Spaces, a dual exhibition by photographer Ricardo Barros & sculptor Austin Wright. This installation addresses volume– the space a substance occupies – in various ways through light, shadow, and form.   “You could say we’re focusing on the same subject, but seeing it through different lenses,” says Princeton resident photographer Barros.   “Or,” sculptor Wright adds, “We’re both pursuing a sculptural vision. Mine results in a three-dimensional sculpture. Ricardo works with similar forms to produce a two-dimensional

The Concussion Diaries

“I suffered a serious concussion in April 2017. Alice fell down a rabbit hole; I just fell on the floor. The doctors forbade ‘reading, screens of any sort, and complex thinking.’ For the first four months I couldn’t even listen to music. I wondered if I might go bonkers – and then I wondered if that was complex thinking. Without the capacity for the usual distractions, I found myself in a quiet world of color and composition. In some ways my sensory experience was stripped

The Periodic Table of Elements

“My work has always been inspired, to one degree or another, by my interest and attention to the Sciences. This new body of work, THE PERIODIC TABLE OF ELEMENTS, gets to the essence of life and ecosystems by focusing on the natural “elements” themselves which make everything in the natural and synthetic worlds possible. Congruent with this are my own principle interests with surface and materiality as each work is an experiment with materials and texture – mixing a variety of gels and other additives
