Long Summer Shadow

Opening reception Saturday July 29th 6-8PM
A group exhibition featuring new work from:
Tremaine’s dynamic oil paintings are autobiographical, yet simultaneously universal, reflecting a search for meaning in the human experience. They often focus on family and children at play, with a style that bridges figuration, representation, and still life. Their complex surfaces convey a history by layering and eliminating in a push-pull fashion to reveal what is most essential, evoking collective memories like ghosts of what once was.
Master watercolorist Gary Bukovnik fuses sensual vitality with fluid yet powerful colorations, creating floral images of great depth, intensity, and size. Internationally exhibited and celebrated worldwide, Bukovnik’s iconic works are an homage to the pleasantries of beauty, itself.
Steeped in the Bay Area Figurative movement, Mary Robertson’s oeuvre focuses on Northern California's Russian River and its beaches, floats, and figures. Yet it is the afternoon Bay Area light that is paramount within the intimate and compelling works. Her paintings, in both watercolor and oil on canvas, have an affinity with the American Realists and European Impressionists. When taking in a Robertson scene, there is a sense of time standing still while being bathed in a lazy California summer glow. Artist Wayne Thiebaud once stated, “Mary Robertson’s joyous and meditative paintings are colorful simulations of contentment and sacred play.”
Polish artist Justyna Kisielewicz shares her unique perspective, which imagines the West through the lens of Polish TV and the Hollywood movies of her youth. Her work considers Western culture, consumption, and capitalism, as well as other issues that affect the state of the world. Glamour and humor find a place in her flirtatious and cheeky works that ask us to question our values and our place on the world stage. Justyna Kisielewicz currently resides in California.
Laurent Davidson’s tabletop and freestanding stabile sculptures and mobiles are visual poetry in motion. Formed of aluminum and lightweight steel and painted in a range of nature-inspired gradient hues, this original artwork dances. It is a delight to watch the never-ending, free-flowing exchange between the dazzling aerial sculptures and the space in which they reside as a harmonious balance point is constantly pursued within a subtly changing environment.
