What started out as a desire to capture the historic moments following this year's presidential inauguration, Lisa Allen's show documents the resistance that has swept across Washington D.C. during President Trump's first six months. Shown through photographs and screen prints of the inauguration weekend and protests during the months following, we see the various forms of dissent in the nation’s capital and a first hand look at democracy in action.
See the Difference
In this body of work, I first experimented by appropriating works by Jackson Pollock, Jean Dubuffet and Langley Spurlock (with his permission) and used them to create textures in my rocks and mountains. Then, I decided to make my own version of Jackson Pollock and incorporated it into my work. These new images seem to have an interesting effect.
Speak to Me
What do our bodies reveal about self and experience? Figurative sculptor Chris Corson explores human issues of identity, growth and transformation through the physical contours and gestures of the nude. This show features 3-D ceramic figures and, in collaboration with photographer Stuart Diekmeyer, a series of 2-D images that record dramatically different atmospheric firings of a single torso. Says Corson, “The body has spoken to us for thousands of years. There is so much more to hear.”

In the Neighborhood
Looking closely at familiar surroundings and altering the objects with unexpected color, depth of field, and mixed media changes focus and observation. For me it allows new choices for points of view.
The paintings in the Garden Gallery by Eleanor Kotlarik Wang have water as a source for creative investigation.
