Gallery Exhibition for Joyce St. Clair-Voltz
Show Title: Trifle
Closing Reception date: Thu Jun 7, 2018 5:30pm – 7:30pm
This reception date coincides with June’s First Thursdays in NewBo
Gallery Exhibition Dates: May 29th through June 9th
Artist’s Statement: My work is my belief in the celebration of a robust femininity. The exchange between volume and ornament, delicacy and substantially, distinguishes the relationship between culturally persistent ideals of femininity and what I understand to be my own sense of feminine. A robust femininity informs the relationship between form and surface in my work. Robustness conveys strength through fullness and power; femininity is a womanliness culturally synonymous with fragility and grace.
“Trifle” delves into my current mood of change, development and attitude; an exercise of the importance of frivolity in self-reflection.
Gallery Exhibition for Linda Ge
Show Title: Contingere
Opening Reception Date: Thu Jun 21, 2018 5:30pm – 7:30pm
Gallery Exhibition Dates: June 12th through June 23rd
Artist’s Statement: To touch, to extend to, to border upon, to arrive at.” Contingere explores the idea of tactility and the physical coalescence of ephemeral shadows, undulating forms, and abrupt wisping lines.
Gallery Exhibition for Lars Voltz
Show Title: None
Closing Reception Date: Thu Jul 5, 2018 5:30pm – 7:30pm
This reception date coincides with July’s First Thursdays in NewBo

Artist’s Statement: My explorations within geologic phenomenon, language, mass, volume and diversity of form develop domestic connections with base materials and environments. My investigations encompassing vessels built upon dynamic forms, diversely bodied clay and turbulent, colorful wood fired surfaces assert a continued geologic impact on our understanding of the conditions of contemporary life.
