This show features abstract artists who create with color, line and space.
Madeline Denaro’s graceful layers of color float through her large, abstract canvases with a subtle edginess. The final work is lovingly informed by the process of creation.
Madeline is a graduate of South Florida Art Institute and has studied in London, England and Frankfurt, Germany. Her work has been exhibited nationally for over 30 years, including the Naples Museum of Art (Artis-Naples), as well as in solo exhibitions both here and abroad.
Hyunmee Lee uses simple blocks of color and calligraphic lines to create large elegant compositions. Her minimal instincts appear both tranquil and bold.
Lee spent many years in her native Korea, where she taught in Hong-Ik University as a lecturer and exhibited in solo shows in major art galleries and art fairs in Seoul. In 1997 Lee came to Utah, U.S.A. where she continuously taught in universities and built up her art career. In 2001 she became a faculty member of Utah Valley University. Her large scale paintings have been enthusiastically received in exhibits all over the world
Susan Venablemanipulates copper and other metals to create her multi-dimensional sculptures with their unusual textures, colors and distinctive shadows. “The origins of my work are found in the art of ancient primitive societies where the earth’s elements and resources were paramount”.
Susan’s work is featured in films such as Pulp Fiction and Fight Club as well as in major private and corporate collections.

From Robin Luciano Beaty's fluid encaustic waterscapes to Michael Zigmond's skyscapes, this exhibit reveals the beauty of our natural world.
Stephen Coyle has reached a point in his career where collectors are clamoring for his figurative beach paintings that invite you to soak up the heat, feel the sand and taste the salt.
Stephen’s paintings are in major corporate and private collections across the country.
Robin Luciano Beaty's waterscapes are like a time capsule imbedded in the rich wax medium of encaustic painting slowly revealing photographs, stamps and organic material floating through the surface.
Her work has been featured on the covers of the, Martha Stewart Whole Living Magazine, Art New England Magazine. Artscope Magazine declared her to be "the most heralded of New England encaustic artists".
Michael Zigmond is a superb realist well known for his depiction of light and shadows on commonplace subjects.
Zigmond’s paintings are in major corporate collections such as Merrill Lynch, Wellington Management and CVS Corporation and in private collections around the country. His paintings have been exhibited extensively across the United States.
Experience nature through the eyes of three majorly talented artists, Robert Striffolino, Jean Larson and Amy Brnger along with many of the gallery's premier artists.
Robert Striffolino’s strong and sensual paintings straddle a middle ground somewhere between recognizable images and impressionistic interpretations. His large canvases invite you into a place of expression, emotion and spirit.
Robert’s work is in many private and corporate collections both nationally and internationally,
“The affinity I have always felt toward Nature continues to fuel my creative drive. It evokes in me the emotion to paint.” The recognition and power of the ‘life force’ is very strong.”
Jean Larson’s paintings are rich and dreamy compositions strongly influenced by nature and her exotic travels that have brought her from Southern France to Iceland to the Congo.
Her work is in a number of private collections in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia
“My paintings might be considered representational in as much as they depict elements of nature such as foliage, landscapes and flowers, but they are not necessarily flowers in a traditional sense. I have learned much from flowers.”
Amy Brnger’s vibrant paintings lovingly capture the bravura of delicate flowers plucked from the garden and planted in bases. Her garden scenes and interior images read as a bouquet of lavish colors.
Amy’s paintings are exhibited throughout the United State and Canada.
“….the kinds of still life objects I often choose to paint are themselves directly derived from the landscape: garden flowers leaves, etc. Whatever the subject, all images are painted rapidly, in an effort to capture the changing nature of organic forms.”
MAY - JUNE 2014
Add something fabulous and unusual to your collection that hits the spot - that difficult spot – a niche, a shelf, a corner - that’s been calling for a beautiful work made by hand.
Exhibit: May 1 – June 30 2014
Featured Artists: Kevin Box, Willliam Zweifel, & Elizabeth Rhoads Read
Kevin Box – Kevin’s unique bronze sculptures are inspired by the impermanence of paper. Each sculpture starts as an origami creation. He then utilizes “organic burnout” process that marries paper with the age- old tradition of bronze casting. This process captures all of the paper’s intimate details.
"What inspires me about origami is its simple metaphor for life. We all begin with a blank page, what we choose to do with it is what matters and the possibilities are endless.”
William Zweifel – William’s graceful and memorizing art utilizes woven glass and cast glass to create rich flowing compositions. He has won the prestigious NICHE Award three times and his work in numerous public and private collections.
“Each sculpture I create is personal to me. Draping the woven glass became my form of expression …the movement is natural, organic and emotional.”
Elizabeth Rhoads Read - Elizabeth is drawn to simple every day materials to create her vessels - paper, used fabric, and abject items. Her work involves varying surface textures, illusive light and dark recesses with an overriding strong color. These pieces reveal secret hiding places that pull one in for shelter.
