|Carole Garland, The Archipelago, Oil on canvas, 30 x 40"|
Whether urban or rural, land or sea, a strong sense of atmosphere, mood, and emotion resonate through Garland’s work. As these images are a depiction of her explorations, Garland concurrently experiments with new painting methods, utilizing a palette knife to achieve impasto and layering techniques to create transparency. Playing between thick and thin application, Garland allows the paint to flow across her canvases, creating abstract forms that morph into recognizable shapes found within the far and near.

Carol Kleinman, Watching Them Watching Us, Single exposure photograph on canvas, 23 x 20"
Kleinman’s work, printed on canvas, reveals realities most people do not normally notice. She says “A great deal of the impact of my work stems from the fact that my images actually existed at a specific time and place and are not creations or manipulations. Nothing I do is set up or manufactured. My goal is to offer these slices of life as a catalyst from which the viewer can go on a journey and hopefully explore deeper personal emotions.”
|Ernie Marjoram, Bayou, Oil on canvas, 36 x 48"|
Influenced by the artist Edward Hopper, Ernie seeks the real and the true in depicting the built environment using dark earthy tones or bright vibrant hues to evoke emotional themes of desolation, decay, and danger, or elegance, sophistication, and grandeur. Dramatic lighting and shadow are used to further enhance the mood and allow the viewer to provide their own narrative content.
