Simplified Forms

David Ridgway - Paintings
Pete Kuentzel - Ceramic Sculpture
This gallery show brings together painter David Ridgway and ceramicist Pete Kuentzel. While both artists use seemingly simple forms--a rectangle, a triangle or a circle-- they create lush, complex compositions on canvas or clay.
David has a unique approach with landscapes: he initially removes any signs of present day, like power lines or cell towers. Then, he simplifies the form and intensifies the color. His skies become heavy white rocks, gliding by a farm barnyard scene without the creatures that inhabit those spaces. Portrayed in rich velvety purples and reds, we now see a bunch of simplified forms that evoke a barnyard.

Pete's approach to his ships and tankers again use the simplified form of a rectangle, a triangle or a circle to create the form of a ship. A rectangle for the ships stack and a circle for a porthole and perhaps a rectangle for the cargo hold. Pete's color vocabulary is filled with sun drenched yellows, reds and blues.

These artists showcase individual talents (David’s painting and Pete’s ceramic sculptures) while pairing beautifully.

All Birds Fly!

Robin & John Gumaelius and Michael Dickter

August 3 - 31, 2018
This delightful show represents a fusion of forms: painted surfaces on the wall and ceramic sculptures on pedestals.

The gallery is alive with kinetic ceramic creatures from Robin and John, that cavort and play in a imaginary world created by this wife and husband team.

And the gallery walls will dance with the forms of beautiful flowers and flying birds in Michael's painted mixed media landscapes.

Reception for the artists: Friday, August 3rd 4-7 pm

Please join us at the gallery on Saturday, August 4th 11-1 pm
