Monochrome
October 31 through December 6, 2014

Monochrome is the use of a single color in a work of art. This seemingly simple process introduces many challenges for the artist. For the photographer, it requires an entirely new way of seeing. For example, the colors red and green when translated into a monochromatic image look almost exactly the same because of their position in the color spectrum. For the painter, variations of one color give an image form. It is a much more difficult task than simply adding a new color. For the sculptor, three dimensional shapes are vital to the final piece. The way light curves around a shape on a block of white marble gives it dimension. The challenge is to control those shapes from all viewing angles.

This exhibition demonstrates how 14 Palm Beach County artists have mastered this process in their own medium. Artists on display are Vincent Cacace, Joel Cohen, Misoo Filan, Mark Forman, Stephen Futej, Jacek Gancarz, William Halliday, Mimi Langlois, Kandy Lopez, Sally Ordile, Michael Price, Scherer & Ouporov, Thomas L Tribby and Harvey Zipkin.

Dena LyonsNovember 22 through January 3
Reception: December 13, 3 - 5 p.m.

Dena Lyons
Graduating from The Dreyfoos School of the Arts in 1998, Dena Lyons continued her studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago as well as the highly acclaimed Marchutz School of Painting and Drawing in Aix en Provence. Recently she has spent time working on internationally commissioned projects as well as showing in prominent galleries around the world. Andre Derain and the Fauves (the first painter group from France to break with Impressionistic tradition and use more bold, vibrant colors straight from the tube) are major influences of Lyons as well as David Hockney and Alice Neel. Her most recent work utilizes one object: a tree alone. denalyons.com

 

Carin WagnerCarin Wagner
As light is an ephemeral concept, when used in art, the moment captured can be more important than the subject itself. Carin Wagner's illuminated canvases capture more than just light-she captures the subject so realistically it almost seems tangible. Her inspiration comes from the natural beauty of the world around us. Wagner states: "As an artist I strive to paint each flower and leaf at its most magnificent moment. Taking great care with the fine details takes considerably more time than an impressionistic approach, but I feel it is the only way to do sufficient justice to these incredible gifts of nature." Her work has won multiple awards and has been shown nationally. carinwagnerfineart.com

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation for The Everglades Education Fund and the Natural Science Education programs of MacArthur Beach State Park.
