These embroideries were recently “rediscovered” by the duo and Tom created a new and unique biosphere for each of them – the North Woods, an African Savannah, a Desert, a Tropical Rainforest, the Mountains, and the Arctic.

July – September 2011

Stay Still

The still life is perhaps one of the most iconic of all subject matter in the history of painting. With a past chock full of tradition and institutional sameness, it can be easy to overlook the still life’s role in contemporary art. However, Stay Still embraces the banality of the everyday and instead presents us with artwork that allows us to recognize the simple splendor we so often encounter. The work in Stay Still is about lifting those ordinary, unremarkable objects and instances onto a pedestal; about recognizing the importance and beauty of the everyday occurrence. This show is extremely diverse; soft sculptures of household objects and fruits and vegetables posed as people give an updated take on the modern still life while other artists remain true to traditional imagery, providing a bridge between past and present.

Featuring work by Blythe Church (Sewn by Blythe), Bob Fojut,
Nancy MacDonald, Darren Maurer, Milo Mirabelli, Jeff Mulloy,
Sara Mulloy, Michael Van Zeyl and William Zuback


April – June 2011

Au Naturel

To be “au naturel” is to be stripped down, brought back to the simplest form. But it is also a metaphor for a fresh start. And as the last piles of snow slowly disappear and the crisp scent of spring starts to fill the air, we look at both definitions combined. It only seems natural, now, to hang a show that brings with it a feeling of rejuvenation and a new beginning. With Au Naturel, we present a collection of nature-inspired art in a variety of media. Our intent is to show nature at its best; an idealistic view of all the beautiful possibilities that our world can hold.

Featuring work by Christine Alfery, Marla Baggetta, Emily Belknap,
Carmen Benske, Jennifer Falck Linssen, Karin Haas,
Tom Rauschke, Priscilla Robinson, David Schaefer, Lynn Schoenecker, David Sear and Colette Odya Smith Jennifer Falck Linssen and Christine Alfery



January – March 2011


All the colors of the rainbow are held in the white wavelength of light, just to be broken down and let free. White in art, however, serves as possibility, anticipating multitudes of layers or additions in any conceived form. Our new exhibition, WHITE, features artwork created exclusively in shades of white. Creating art under such restrictions allows for the in depth exploration of all other aesthetic and compositional boundaries. This exhibition will present those possibilities which are further examined when color is disregarded.

Featuring work by James Aarons, Sarah Budensiek, Katherine Dube,
Susan Dwyer, Kristin Haas, Brian Mancl, Jeff Margolin,
NewBreed Furniture Network and David Schaefer
