2024 Show Schedule

December 2 to February 11, 2024 Voices of Abstraction: Works by Barb Kreutter and Sharon Thompson

Both Barb and Sharon are attracted to abstraction as a compelling open-ended way to explore and bring together feeling and intuition without the mental directives and limitations necessitated by representation. Barb’s photographs use a layering process that ultimately creates an abstract image that is suggestive of the imagery embedded within the layering.

Sharon’s paintings use layering to create spatial depth, intuitively selecting what to keep and what to move between the layers.
