“For This Moment: Revealing Energy and Chaos” by Susan M Gibbons
Susan M. Gibbons reveals the messiness of life through active brushstrokes and color. Through meditation and prayer, the work forms and reflects perceived chaos and energy. The paintings allow the viewer to enter into a sacred place that identifies our world and helps to define us as human.
“For This Moment: Seeing Black and White” by Susan Hazaleus
Susan Hazaleus explores disconnection and isolation in the black and white photographs taken in the near regions of her home neighborhood.
“For This Moment: Between Light and Darkness” by Vicky Smith
Vicky Smith explores the dichotomy between light and darkness. She is interested in the allure of organic shapes bracketed by their shadows and the spaces between. The pieces are a celebration of the beauty of nature, patterning, and tactile forms contrasted with the unseen, unknown, unspoken, and intangible complexities of our world.
“For This Moment: Transcending Place and Time” by Emily Oldak
Emily Oldak’s multilayered abstracts of colliding and transforming color reflect a life long fascination with shifting perspectives and the nature of reality. Capturing an essence of reality and exploring what lies beyond, her paintings convey a sense of other worldliness and possibility.
“For This Moment: Merging Pattern and Environment” by Faith Williams
Faith Williams’ current body of artwork explores opposing forces in nature through drawing and printmaking installations. Inspired by sacred geometry, the works combine elements of pattern alongside organic movement, while examining the human impact in the natural order of the world.
