Margaret Embree: Moments
Each of our lives is a work in progress, I have been reminding myself of that a bunch while remembering to focus on each moment; individually unwrapped they contain vast amounts of imagery and sensory perceptions that enhance our experience. I have approached these pieces with a two-fold technique of not quite knowing what the materials will do and making something consciously from the results.
Lindsay Heider Diamond - Woman: Self & Other
This selection of work explores and reflects observations of quiet moments of women, through paintings and drawings in oil, acrylic, gouache and charcoal created over the last three years. Aging, the #MeToo movement and the path of my own life, as woman and artist, continue to be the inspiration for the work. This body of art is a kaleidoscope of women, with an ever-changing view presented in each piece. March is National Women In History Month, please come celebrate the beauty and strength of women.
