Beyond the Tartan: Suzanne Guppy
Sept. 9 – Oct. 18, Opening Reception on Sept. 9 at 5:00 p.m.

Poetic Internet: Synthesizing Painting and Drawing

A primary concern in Suzanne Guppy's work is interconnectivity. The drawings analyze complex natural motifs and search for interconnections in nature. The paintings are almost the opposite -- constructed motifs with only a few items arranged on a table. However, the subject is the same: the network of connections between the objects and the space they are in.

Lucio Boschi: Andean Lives
Sept. 12 – Oct. 27, Opening Reception on Sept. 12 at 5:00 p.m.

Lucio Boschi Artist Talk on Sept. 12 at 3:30 p.m. at the Performance Hall at the Covington Center

Argentine photographer Lucio Boschi has largely devoted himself to shooting the mountain people of the Andes and Himalayas, drawn to the simplicity and toughness of their lives and their dramatic surroundings. This show of black-and-white photographs taken in the Andes is one of exceptional and profound beauty. These are not the photographs of an outsider looking at a foreign culture, but rather those of a man who found in small details and ordinary scenes, majesty and mystery. His ease in that world gives viewers remarkable access. This exhibit is made possible by sponsorship by Mendoza Art Partners.

Artists Talk on Jan. 31 at 4:00 p.m. in the Performance Hall in the Covington Center.

James and Umut are partners, both in their marriage as well as in their collaborative studio work. James has a background in sculpture and metalsmithing that has led to the creation of Thurmanite®, a layered paper-resin composite material he uses in much of his work. Umut has a background in textile design, metalsmithing, and enameling, which all manifest themselves in her studio work and designs. Collaboratively, they create a wide variety of work, from wearables to home furnishings. Their newest body of work unites Thurmanite® with enameled components into new and exciting combinations.

Beyond the Tartan: Carrie Metheny
Feb. 10 – March 28, Opening Reception on Feb. 10 at 5:00 p.m.

Carrie Metheny's work is a representation of her study of the female form in nature. Her forms have become an extension of nature and nature has become an extension of the forms. Metheny's work represents the beauty and adaptability of the female. Nature has become a decorative camouflage and in turn the form has become a representation of the beauty of Mother Nature.
