Jenny Toth: Capture and Release

Jenny Toth : Capture and Release

October 30 – November 29, 2012

Reception POSTPONED TO SATURDAY, November 10, 3-6pm

In this solo show, Toth further explores her passionate empathy for animals and their intimate connection to humans. The work is loosely based around the theme of being in some way captured or contained–by a leash, fence, rope, or dense foliage–contrasted with imagery of shattered constraints, animals set loose, breaking through to freedom. Always grounded in painting from direct observation, Toth continues to weave together self-portraiture with this thematic core, often with an understated humor.

Marie Roberts (Brooklyn) and Deborah Stern (Tucson, Arizona) are artists who have known each other for many years, yet live in almost parallel universes. While distance separates them physically, they are in virtually constant daily contact and share many artistic and social views. This artistic collaboration is an outgrowth of their often similar worldview, each one emphasizing the stark nature of injustice and inequality that pervades their immediate environment.

Gina Sawin: New Work

April 24 – May 19

Opening reception: Thursday, April 26, 5 – 8 pm

Gina Sawin will exhibit recent work from her ongoing series of bird paintings.

Connected at once to earth, water, and sky, birds symbolize delicate ecological balances and, as a motif in Sawin’s paintings, they suggest our spiritual – and perhaps tenuous – connection to the planet. These shore and water birds, often featured alone, are suspended between the naturalistic and the emblematic, representing not necessarily how we see birds, but how we feel their presence.

Owen Gray: Look Up, Look Down

March 27th – April 21st

Opening Reception: Thursday, March 29th 5-8 PM

Owen Gray’s ninth solo show at Blue Mountain Gallery illustrates two perspectives the artist has been engaged in for years. From above, you are looking down at aquatic wild life, musical instruments, overturned boats – all in the thick of a dense, tropical environment. From below, you are looking at freefalling creatures and objects of desire as they whirl every which way. Gray’s subject matter is indirectly influenced by the Italian painter Tiepolo, Pieter Brueghel, Hieronymus Bosch, and 17th-century Dutch artists.
