January 22 – March 11, 2020
Reception: Wednesday, February 5, 5 – 7 p.m.
Artist panel: Wednesday, February 5, 3 – 4:30 p.m.
George R. Anthonisen, Richard Lennox, Mavis Smith and Emily Thompson bring a particular emphasis on representational content that also incorporates a measure of references and classical media (bronze, egg tempera, oils). Sculptor Anthonisen explores the drama and flair of the nude in all of her glory; Smith, who works primarily in egg tempera, creates meticulous, solitary, introspective figures set in surreal landscapes; painters Lennox and Thompson both revel in the linear aspects of architecture, articulating the framework of buildings and signage, their context in-situ, and the subject’s intrinsic abstraction. Together, the combined work contains a thread of elements which are reflective (both in a thoughtful way and literally as shimmering light echoes off of surfaces), evocative and familiar. Curated by Lisa Tremper Hanover.
