Recurring Dreams by Glenda Creamer

Glenda Creamer’s paintings show abstract worlds that appear to be microscopic or telescopic. The colors vibrate against each other, advancing or receding in space. The cartoon like marks float, dance or explode on the canvas. Sometimes the background color is on top, creating new shapes by removing superfluous marks. Creamer has worked with these ideas for many years, experimenting with scale, thickness or thinness of paint, and with simple, busy compositions.

This exhibition will be at the Jane Sandelin Gallery


Dimensions by Mary F. Vivo

Mary F. Vivo’s exhibit consists of “Housculptures”: handcrafted three-dimensional miniatures of buildings, street scenes, and landscapes duplicated in fine detail that depict the actual structure and its surroundings. They depict a variety of subjects, including: vintage shops and places of business; historical monuments; unusual architectural designs.

This exhibition will be in the Skylight Gallery.
