Moments in Time & Space: Ceramics by Claudia Tarantino, Daniel Alejandro Trejo, and Bill Heiderich

Apr. 14 - Jun. 12

View fantastic work by three ceramic artists who share an interest in capturing the changing quality of time through their art. Claudia Tarantino’s exquisite trompe l’oeil sculptures activate memories by representing keepsakes such as photographs, toys, and children’s shoes. Bill Heiderich reinterprets vessels by using shapes derived from traditional pottery. Daniel Alejandro Trejo’s ceramic forms play with enclosure, as they frame internal and external space. 


Home: Mixed Media Paintings by Susan W. Brady

May 12 - Jun. 11

Susan W. Brady’s landscapes are a hybrid of painting, collage, and photography. Originating with a digital image, her work builds upon the photograph by collaging layers of handmade papers, dye, and oil paint. The world she shares is full of the bounty of nature captured in our local area. 


Wandering Thoughts: Paintings by Dawn Star Wood

May 5 - Jun. 25

Dawn Star Wood’s captivating watercolor paintings portray the dreamy interior world of women lost in thought or asleep, complete with stars, moons, and other signs of the cosmos. She also finds equal inspiration in subjects like vintage cars, motorcycles, and advertisements, of which she paints close-up views that show her skill at capturing reflection, rust, and age.
