FIRST THURSDAY AT THE STUDIOS

SOLID UNCERTAINTY

Michel Delgado

Sanger Gallery 

Delgado works with the idea of experience – mining visual images for their emotional and spiritual content. Never having a preconceived image in mind, he seeks to portray things that are not obvious in reality, focusing instead on the composition and the balance of the work. This amalgamation of uncertainty and confidence brings his work to life in surprising ways.

ACTIVE DUTY

Alaina Plowdrey

XOJ Gallery 

Alaina Plowdrey explores ideas of physicality, drive and determination in her portraits of active duty service members. Linking her paintings to the ideas of philosopher and poet Lucretuis, Plowdrey delves into the psyche of the soldier.

Jeane LaRance

Zabar Project Gallery 

To create her latest works, a series of digital images on metal, LaRance spent countless hours transferring, burnishing, sanding and varnishing. This hands-on process also ensures “beauty marks” – tiny imperfections that are LaRance’s favorite part of the work.

FROM THE PRESS

Interview with Michel Delgado
Lucky Street Gallery

“As an artist, I don’t work in series. That structure doesn’t interest me. I’d rather be remembered as an interesting artist.”

Friends new and old are invited to join us for each month’s First Thursday Open House event, when we keep our lights on late and throw our doors open to celebrate the newest work in our galleries. Stop in to say hello, relax with a glass of wine, tour the third floor artist studios and see the just-installed exhibitions in the Sanger, XOJ, Zabar Project and Zabar Lobby Galleries. Books & Books is the next stop, where you can browse the latest titles and catch up with old friends.
