Winter Light

a group show of gallery artists

December 5th - 29th

Reception: Thursday, December 6th, 6-8

"Winterlight" not only illuminates a season but can also reveal states of mind.  Painters usually are drawn to light like moths to a flame.  Some artists observe with acute penetration the way a particular light falls, while others are able to gather an internal light that captures the imagination.  Between these two extremes of the particular and the conceptual depictions of light are the many that illumine the world.

Participating artists: Jennifer Aldridge, Nancy Balliett, Jessica Bartlet, Sallie Benton, Beverly Brodsky, Sandra Caplan, Mary K. Connelly, Ashley Norwood Cooper, Bill Creevy, Teresa Dunn, Suzi Evalenko, Hank Feeley, Wayne Fields, Wendy Gittler, Rachel Gordon Bernstein, Tim Kennedy, Michele Liebler, Mari Lyons, Rallou Malliarakis, Doretta Miller, Marion Miller, Kathi Packer, Marianne Perry Salas, Tracy Collamore Powers, Nicole McCormick Santiago, Dana Saulnier, and Jane Shoenfeld.
