Come to Terryberry Gallery at St. Cecilia to see the beautiful artworks of Richard Schaff and William Alexander. Two very different artists, but their work is outstanding together. Bill has beautiful, colorful abstracts and Richard has magical landscapes and a portrait. Up next: Franciscan Artists - A group of artists meet at the Franciscan Life Process Center every Wednesday in an open studio format. You will get a chance to see the collected artworks of this outstanding group. Every medium and style will be included in this wonderful show that will be up the month of April.
In April we have scheduled Pamela DeTuncq, an artist from Sun Valley, Idaho to give a presentation. Pamela is a conceptual artist who addresses some of the more compelling zeitgeists of contemporary American culture. After years in the design industry, she now applies her skills to multi-layered sculptural installations addressing such disparate themes as teen alienation, gender stereotypes, and the vicissitudes of faith. Her most recent work addresses the subject of aging, and the ephemeral nature of existence.
In April, we will see works by the students of Kathleen Kalinowski. Along with the landscapes and still lifes, each artist will have a short statement. The class has been meeting for four years from September to April and occasionally painting en plein air. Enjoy the exhibit!
(If you have had a work on display during March, please pick it up on or before March 31.)
