Into the Storm features the artwork of Daniel Angeli in the Fortescue Gallery. 

Ten years ago, Daniel Angeli began painting scenes of disaster and catastrophe based on his Grandfather's World War II experiences. Fear and uncertainty continue to pervade his current work as he depicts contemporary catastrophes of shipwrecks, building collapses, and other wreckage. The resulting images are landscapes that speak to our current situation of fragility and instability. The forms and structures themselves in his paintings are simultaneously coalescing and breaking apart.

Candy Spilner, Paintings features the artwork of Candy Spilner in the East Gallery. 

Candy Spilner’s constructions burst from the wall with vibrant color and vivacious movement. Her goal is to elicit an emotional and poetic response from the viewer. The large constructed shapes are derived from twisted and gnarly roots that refer to the figure with gesture and scale and a suggestion of movement. The brightly colored forms oscillate and come alive on the wall. "The form is a stand-in for me," says Ms. Spilner. "In front of my paintings, I feel like I’m looking into a mirror. I want to strike a similar pose, maybe standing on one foot and twisting with an arm in the air. I want the viewer to have a the same desire, to dance along with the paintings rather than just looking at them." 


ELEVATOR GALLERY 

Philip Jacobi, LIGHT IN THE FOREST

February 5 - March 28 

Friday, February 5 
Opening Reception 4-6pm

Philip Jacobi transforms the Elevator Gallery into a living forest, a literal resource for the wood pieces he creates by hand. 

His woodwork is mostly figurative, although some pieces stand on their own and tend to be more abstract. Created from wood gathered to heat his home, Jacobi's art is infused with a deep, metaphysical connection to nature. They are one-of-a-kind, divided in the following categories: Spiritual, Natural, Mystical and the following secondary categories: He and She, Faces, Fishes, Pedestals, Sculpture, and Mobiles.
