Rebekah Callaghan: Daytime

Rebekah Callaghan met the unique challenges of this past year by turning inward, moving away from observation and focusing more on her process and feelings.  Callaghan scaled up the plant-based imagery.  She played with color and pattern to fit the mood of the painting rather than limiting herself to a faithful adherence to the original source.  

The artist’s hand and state of mind is prominent as Callaghan layers, scratches, and paints over the surface of the canvas, allowing the image to evolve in real time.  As the artist says, “Some of the paintings are filled with commotion and others peace.  They’re a record of what I found in the details of the daytime…responses to particular light, tenor, temperature. They represent my search for a moment of solace in uncertain spaces.”

Claire Kincade: Changing Spaces

Claire Kincade chooses familiar and often used household items for inspiration. In Kincade’s hands, various bottles, pitchers, cups, and bowls become players on theatrical stage sets. The simplicity of the subject matter lends itself to complex manipulation of the constructed space as Kincade builds unexpected relationships through color patterns, dramatic lighting, and unusual perspectives.

Her paintings are activated by the occasional addition of a plant that casts its intricate shadow, a swatch of fabric, a patterned rug or a decorative wall grate, all of which serve to underscore Kincade’s unique preferences, welcoming further curiosity and a closer engagement with her work.

Pet Show

Gross McCleaf Gallery is pleased to present Pet Show, an exhibition featuring the work of fourteen artists and filled with furry and feathery friends.

Joan Becker combines botanicals, portraiture, art historical references and non-traditional pets in her intricate watercolor. Indiana-based artist Su A Chae promotes interspecies friendship in her airbrushed and hand-painted work. The oldest cat in the show is Toby, the subject of Eileen Goodman’s 1976 painting, while a close second and third are the sleepy kittens appearing in Frank Trefny’s two interiors from 1978. Morgan Hobbs paints patterns and purrs in her whimsical and humorous portraits while Katie Hubbell’s pets slither and swish through her seductive photographs. Darla Jackson’s sculptures add dimension to the show, as does Jonathan Mandell’s low-relief mosaic piece.

Christina Leone explores the individual personalities of her sitters, and Douglas Martenson’s paintings of family pets catch them in quiet moments.  An invasion of rabbits disrupts Joseph Lozano’s meticulously articulated pencil drawing of a human being. In a life-size oil painting, Scott Noel’s husky, Courtney, protectively guards a classical nude.  Lastly, Bethann Parker and Ted Walsh take us on a tour of the farm.
