Sharon Cavagnolo: “New Paradigms”

In this exhibit of dazzling abstract paintings, the artist deals with chaos and the human need to control and come to terms with it.  For the artist, a gestural or impulsive movement often serves as the beginning of an idea for a painting, with subsequent layers imparting balance, line, color and pattern, creating an alternate reality in the process.

Anca Pedvisocar: “Take 2”

An exhibit of works about second chances given to forgotten moments in forgotten lives of forgotten people, to be re-lived in a different way by people of our time.  The central theme in these paintings is a mixture of tension and solitude that seems to bring people together, while simultaneously pulling them apart.
