9 Decades and Counting…

by Jane Adriance & Bob JenkinsFebruary 12, 2022 - March 12, 2022

  9 Decades and Counting…. not everyone gets the chance to be described this way, especially as an artist who produces new work on a daily basis. This exhibition is not a retrospective in the least, but a show that features the work of Jane Adriance and Bob Jenkins, both artists in their 90s. This Taplin Gallery show is dedicated to Jane and Bob’s ability to come together with fresh, contemporary visions: Bob with his sculptures of papier-mâché on wire, and Jane with oil and watercolor paint

Traces of Time

by Eileen Hohmuth LemonickJanuary 8, 2022 - February 5, 2022

  Change is constant. The process of growing older is a fact. These images contain traces of a lifetime’s memories. They have to do with the passing of time, moments and people that are gone, love, sexuality, family, beauty, decay, fragility, longevity, vulnerability, sickness, health, the pandemic and death.   This project started when I fractured my pelvis, was immobile, and could only get around with a walker. Friends sent bouquets and with severely limited motion, I began to photograph them on my kitchen table,

Talk to Me

by Janet Filomeno & Katherine ParkerOctober 16, 2021 - November 20, 2021

When artists are friends, they spend years even decades watching one another’s work change and grow. They talk together in studios, galleries, museums and cafes, discussing the intersection of life and art. These conversations are so important to artists, as a studio practice is quiet and sometimes lonely. The shorthand developed over years of conversation can ignite a body of work, deepen a theme, or reimagine an idea just beginning to take shape. It’s no surprise that such friendships have historically been so important to

Constant Repeating Themes

by Aubrey J. KauffmanSeptember 11, 2021 - October 9, 2021

  As a photographer, the themes of urban landscape and man’s impact on the environment have long intrigued me both artistically and intellectually. I witness this in constructions as simple as building façades in a strip mall to the deserted athletic fields in parks and playgrounds.    Through my viewfinder I seek to contrast and compare the interactions of natural and man-made elements. I tend to seek out landscapes that speak to a certain stillness. In the buildings and structures that I photograph, I emphasize

Leslie Kuenne: A Life in Art

A Voice to be Heard

by Ryan Bonilla, Shelter Serra, Martha Tuttle, Joyce Kozloff, Maria de Los Angeles, Adam Moss, Buket Savci, Frenel MorrisApril 10, 2021 - May 8, 2021

A Voice to be Heard explores the idea of the inner voice and the ongoing search for meaning, connection, and sense of place. The artists explore ideas of belonging that seem truly important in our contemporary life and in a society that too often feels polarized and isolated, inviting us to reflect on our points of view and shared humanity.   Joyce Kozloff in her series “girlhood” visually collaborated with her younger self through using childhood drawings in her current work that reflect on her

Textured Waters

by Paintings by Léni Paquet-Morante & Susan DeConciniMarch 13, 2021 - April 3, 2021

When artists Susan DeConcini and Léni Paquet-Morante submitted individual proposals for an exhibition, the Arts Council’s gallery committee saw an exciting pairing because of their shared interest in water as a subject matter. Susan’s watercolors on paper explore her interest in the movement and textures of ocean waves and other water surfaces in motion. Painted at a variety of water environments, Leni’s plein-air landscape interpretations inform her studio work. Together, these artists’ works provide a contemplation of water as both a familiar subject and intriguing
