Slow Crown by Jenny Kemp; Circular Color Scheme (Detail) by Richard Garrison

 

The works of Richard Garrison and Jenny Kemp share a commonality in complex color use, although each artist’s approach is quite unique from one another. Richard’s “color schemes” encompass his daily life and interactions with the often under observed palette of American consumerism. Jenny has a more organic approach to painting and animation, one that’s more akin to represent organisms or the growth of nature-based forms. Kemp and Garrison were the recipients of The Arts Center’s Emerging and Established Artist Awards in 2015. The awards were made possible through the generous support of Karen + Chet Opalka and The Marcelle Foundation.

Last Staircase by Greg Cuda

Last Staircase by Greg Cuda

 

Abandoned presents relics of industrialization, captured in vivid, moving detail. This exhibit explores what has been left behind, the color and texture of the city’s ruins and rust. Recently evolved digital photographic techniques are utilized to communicate the catastrophe, the regression. The images are decisively human, a city’s creation, use and abandonment.

Courage by Jeannie Thomma

 

Jeannie Thomma’s exhibition Quiet Strength, will feature her most recent work, a collection of fiber art that explores the connections between creativity and prayer.  Themes of boundaries, blessings and unexpected beauty are woven, stitched, beaded and felted into a wide array of fiber art that seeks to answer two questions: Is belief a creative process? And how can each of us become an instrument of peace?

Jeannie Thomma is the recipient of the 2015 Individual Artist Commission for Rensselaer County, a grant program funded by The Arts Center of the Capital Region through the New York State Council on the Arts. NYSCA Logo - Black
