Opening Reception: March 16 | 3-5pm
This collection of Barbara Kaiser‘s watercolor paintings, created during a period of time touched by tragedy, uncertainty and fear; explores remembrance, resilience and hope. Through depictions of motion and upward-looking compositions, and sharing the common threads of blue sky and flight, the works represent a shift from melancholy to brightness, possibility and joy. The artist employs her signature use of bold color, thoughtful composition and varied watercolor techniques throughout.
Elisabeth Quatrano’s body of work was created amidst the joy of attending art school and the challenges of the pandemic, isolation, and numerous losses in her personal life. The work chronicles the grief and uncertainty through large, abstract ceramic vessels around which she wrapped her thoughts. Slumped from the multiple firings that tested the limits of the material, the pieces embody the experience of carrying emotional weight. This collection endures as a personal time capsule and a testament to the therapeutic potential of creating art.
