The Bigger Picture Kim Alsbrooks, Mary DeWitt, Elise Dodeles, James Doherty

January 17 - March 14

Each portraiture artist in “The Bigger Picture” collection approaches his or her subject in an unconventional fashion.

Kim Alsbrooks paints meticulous portraits on beer or soda cans that have been flattened by cars in the street. Elise Dodeles uses such a large quantity of paint in her application that her surface resembles a painter’s palette, built up with years of layers dried over time. Jim Doherty depicts delicate women on wood he finds at a building site or at the flea market. On luscious Mylar, Mary DeWitt paints bold, haunting portraits of people who are often forgotten behind locked doors. All of these artists’ subjects easily invite the viewer to ponder the much bigger picture that lies just below the surface. A full press release about the exhibition is available here.
