Jeanette Pasin Sloan:
| April 3 – May 3
To look at a painting or drawing by renowned American realist, Jeanette Pasin Sloan, is to be reminded of the startling beauty that lies just before our eyes in the objects of everyday life. Through Sloan’s singular artistry, her hyperrealistic depiction of ordinary household items -- such as silver cups, teapots, bowls, china and textiles -- effects a kind of visual alchemy turning the quotidian into the extraordinary. Sloan has a canny sense of arrangement for those articles of domestic still life creating scenes that radiate reflected light in utterly unique and arresting ways. Her knack for the unexpected composition brings reality to the verge of abstraction.

Connie Connally & Sammy Peters:
| April 3 – May 10
Somewhere between abstraction and realism, lies the work of Sammy Peters and Connie Connally, each remarkable for their unique practice of expressive brushwork, sweeping gestural marks, and animated cadence. A dramatic interplay of geometric and gestural abstraction, the show juxtaposes the signature muted hues, geometry, and jazzy rhythms of Peters’ introspective canvases with Connally’s poetic multi-layered surfaces suffused with organic color and brushwork.
