June 4 at 2pm

Claire Rau: Heirloom

"Heirloom features a collection of sculpture works about the history of objects, especially those that are passed down to us.  Sometimes a wonder, a burden, or plainly trash these items question our sense of time and value." -Claire Rau

Claire Rau presently teaches sculpture at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. She is the recipient of several awards and residencies and is a founding member of The Front, an art collective in New Orleans.

July 2 at 2pm

Andrea Bergen & Adrienne Heloise: Feral Kingdom

Feral Kingdom uses two different styles of collage to explore human relationships with the natural world. Bergen and Heloise both use hand cut, brightly colored artist papers and recycled materials to amass dense, layered collages that reflect their backgrounds as painters. 

Both artists are reacting to their fears of global warming and overwhelming loss of habitats and wildlife as a result of human consumption and waste.




August 6 at 2pm 

Ann Holsberry: New Navigation

"New Navigation draws inspiration from the work and ideas of Morris Graves, specifically his admonition that we need "instruments for a new navigation.” As he drew light and inspiration from the landscape, I work outdoors with materials that are responsive to the elements. This leads me to feel a deep personal engagement with nature. This engagement is furthered by working with large canvases at the edge of oceans, rivers, and other bodies of water in an attempt to capture their ebb, flow, and sedimentation at that particular time and place." -Ann Holsberry
