Lincoln Calling

Seven years after opening its Underground space to experimental, emerging artists, the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts has evolved one step further with its first exhibit in 2012, Transceiver, which continues through Feb. 11.

<p>  The Gardener of Eden</p> Back to the Garden

Entering RNG Gallery this month might evoke the sensation of entering a garden, not unlike the one artist and owner Rob Gilmer’s father created for his family on Long Island’s North Shore. As Merritt G. “Gil” Gilmer writes in his memoirs, “Chaff from the Haymow, Musings and Memories of a Ninety-Year-Old,”   “The old orchard was an orchard when we first came. It soon became a jungle of trees and bushes. It was a...

Making Their Mark

With no apologies to Forrest Gump, this year’s exhibit of the 2012 OEAA artist nominees is no box of chocolate confections and sweet nothings.

“Larry Roots: New Work…”

In the light of the recent deaths of abstract expressionist painters Helen Frankenthaler and Pat Passlof, both 83 and known for their masterful use of color, who continues to work in this challenging style? Locally, only a few come to mind in this continuous mission to define the indefinable through their art.

Kim Reid Kuhn and Cherisse McCoy do wonders with color and expressionism.

‘Visual Dialogues’

Initially Eliska Greenspoon’s new mixed media work at the Fred Simon Gallery provides a sense of calm. Images of nature, soft solid colors and lines and silhouettes of human figures welcome the viewer into the gallery’s urban chic environs.  When you begin to get deeper in the venue and turn the corner, stories reveal themselves and you are caught up in the narratives she created for Visual Dialogues.
