Art Exhibit Schedule
"CityScapes: An intimate view of everyday places and spaces" by Maria Gedroc
August 14-September 29
Reception: September 15 from 2-4 p.m.; Artist's Talk in the Gallery at 3 p.m.
“My paintings celebrate the spirit and inner beauty of the seemingly commonplace urban environment in which we live. The content of these paintings is influenced by my love of architecture, old and new, and the beautiful shapes and colors that emerge from it when contrasted by its surroundings, natural and man-made.”
"Beyond Green Fences" by Julie Sulzen
October 7 - November 9
Reception: October 13, 2-4 p.m.; Artist's Talk in the Gallery at 3 p.m.
“This show will highlight natural wonders that go beyond green construction fences and gentrification to showcase how nature decides its own way of ‘greening’ an urban area with seasonal revitalization and renewal.”
"The Photogram – It's Not an X-ray!" by Dan Zamudio
November 15 - December 13
Reception: November 24, 2-4 p.m.; Artist's Talk in the Gallery at 3 p.m.
“My exhibition will focus on reintroducing one of the traditional darkroom techniques to a digital age, the photogram. A photogram is created without a camera using only light sensitive paper and a darkroom enlarger. The final product is always a mystery. Most importantly, each print is always unique.”
